    @sxw233 it is pretty common, so I don’t know that it is too difficult. Here is the coursebook that describes it further:
    https://www.exeter.edu/sites/default/files/documents/PEA-COI-2019-20.pdf
    If the link doesn’t come through, just google PEA courses of instruction, it outlines all classes needed.

    Thank you @vegas1! We have read the COI. But the rumor has it that it requires intense amount reading and writing and would deprive you from having much time on other activities...

    @sxw233 I think the relative difficulty of the classical languages at Exeter depends a lot on what kind of language background the student has, and how invested they are in the class. One of my son’s friends has decided to switch to a modern language next year, but he had no prior experience with Latin and didn’t have a particularly deep passion for the field. As with everything else at Exeter (and in life), it’s a matter of priorities and time management. One favored saying is that of the three S categories - sleep, socialization and studying - you can only do two, but the reality is that being realistic about commitments, careful about managing your time and willing to compromise means your student will probably be able to do most of what they would like to do.

    Just as a side note, Latin has a reputation on campus for being cult-ty :wink:

    Does PEA send you an email/ confirmation after accepting the admission offer?

    Apparently ISO includes go-karting, pizza, and a beach picnic. I am now convinced that Hogwarts is Exeter in disguise.

    I have not yet opened it - but I do love memoirs, and it seems like an interesting one. Hopefully I'll start reading it earlier than on the way to Exeter. 😁

    @HappyCria I feel that it truly embraces the diverse ideals of Exeter. The assignment that follows, in my opinion, helps you think of the differences between you and other people, but at the same time, the similarities between you and said person no matter how different you may seem. I truly feel that this assignment is a perfect way of introducing people from all around to Exeter’s views on diversity.

    @ImWaisian Indeed. I feel like the methaphor with Cuban and American food really reflects that.
