Urgent: Is Davidson too hard??
I am currently deciding between two schools and Davidson is one of them. The main concern I have about Davidson is the stress culture and academic workload/grade deflation. I have heard from numerous Davidson students that there is barely a social life Sunday-Wednesday, all people do is study all night in the library only to get a low grade. The average GPA is not as high as I thought which is not good for grad school. I come from an intense prep school with a similar academic culture and I am wondering if anyone can provide clarity on this. Thanks!21 replies
