UVA vs Wesleyan
Hello. I am currently a graduating senior and am having second guesses about my decision to choose Wesleyan over UVA. I was admitted early action to UVA, but said no because I initially felt that Wesleyan would be a better fit. However, in the wake of this pandemic, I have been having second guesses. I was originally attracted to Wesleyan's "vibe" when applying, but now am worried about the seemingly one-sided political view of the school (which I am not necessarily opposed to -- I just know that the real world is not actually like that and am worried about living in a bubble for the next four years). I am interested in majoring in economics and international Relations + possibly looking into public health. I was mainly worried about UVA’s very preppy vibe, but have looked online and it seems to have a pretty strong economics program. I know that it is too late to make any real changes; however, I feel that given the circumstances of the world right now, it is worth revisiting my decision. Any insight would be greatly appreciated!2 replies
