    L'ville! Now that I'm Taft '23, Hotchkiss, it's on!

    Loomis or Taft?

    Ugh as a Hotchkiss admit I can't like Taft but also Loomis rejected me... Loomis, the campus was real nice.

    Choate or Deerfield?

    Choate, Deerfield's campus just gives me an overwhelming feeling. (I wonder why Loomis stopped their rivalry with Kent though)

    Loomis or Kent?

    We've heard rumors about Kent being a party school. It feels stupid to believe or be swayed by rumors, but there you go.

    @sparkatzz Why do you get an overwhelming feeling from Deerfield? Can you say more?

    Millbrook or Tabor? (Zoo or Sea?)
  • CavsFan2003CavsFan2003 Registered User Posts: 948 Member
    Tabor! I've got a friend whose brother applied and he talked about it like it was heavenly!

    Lawrenceville or Peddie?

    Peddie. I love the campus, the sports facilities are fabulous, such a warm feeling from everyone when I interviewed. I can't wait to study and play there! It was the only school in the state that I applied to.

    St. Paul's or Hotchkiss?

    @CaliMex I didn't actually visit, but I was there for a debate tournament. But I don't know, maybe the styles of the buildings? It was raining and no one on campus seemed to be smiling or anything so I just kind of got the feel. Their desserts were really good though!

    St. Paul's. And its honestly just because I know SPS much better than Hotchkiss through family friends who go/went there and because I have spent more time on their campus. I've only been to Hotchkiss twice and I only really got a good feel for it during my tour and interview last app cycle. I personally had a really weird interview which I could go on about for hours and my tour guide kept going on and on about the STEM opportunities even though we made it really clear that I was interested in the humanities. I called to withdraw my app 1 hour after our visit. Again, I'm sure its a great school, but I just didn't have a good experience there
