    So what did everyone think about their revisit days? I had a blast.
  • CC4lifeCC4life Registered User Posts: 243 Junior Member
    Honestly, I went into the revisit day at Peddie as a school that was not very high on my list, but as I walked around on campus and visited classes, I felt like I really clicked there and it has brought it to the top of my list with Loomis. Still trying so hard to decide, but just can't seem to be able to make a final decision!!!! Of course, its a very great problem to have when choosing between 2 incredible schools, but still I am in dire need of help. I had my Loomis revisit today and it honestly wasn't as much fun as I hoped, but I think that was partly due to not really clicking with my host as much as I had hoped. My peddie revisit was by far the one where I was genuinely sad when I walked off campus because that could (potentially) be the last time I see those faculty members and students. OMG NOW I'M JUST RAMBLING, HOW AM I GONNA MAKE THIS DECISION.

    @CC4life , whatever you choose, you will be fine! They are both awesome options.

    Having read your posts, I would give real thought to your sports. Would you be happy giving up water polo? Does the (intense!) swimming program at Peddie excite you or turn you off?

    It sounds like Peddie really resonated with you, but if LC is just a hair behind and will allow you to do what you love, is that a price you want to pay?

    Or did Peddie feel so right that it'll be no matter what?

    You are smart to realize how part of it is random. Peddie consistently knocks the revisits out of the park. I know kids who knew it wasn't for them (and went elsewhere) but talked about how well they did the revisit. They have a nice sense of community and that comes across (and is appealing) immediately.

    Looking forward to hearing what you decide. Remember, there's no bad choice here!

    Just asking, does Peddie have Saturday classes?
  • springfield18springfield18 Registered User Posts: 54 Junior Member
    @prepman123, yes, Peddie has Saturday classes.

    During my Peddie revisit, I was paired with a friend of mine from my middle school (we were in same advisory and all). It was pretty fun, not gonna lie. Also, apparently they serve chicken nuggets when a kid gets kicked out. I had chicken nuggets for lunch there that day...

    @confusedaboutFA, even though I ended up choosing Loomis over Peddie, I also heard about the chicken nugget thing during revisit day. My revisit host said that due to the zero tolerance policy they had 4 students get kicked out a coupled days ago for drug usage when they came back from spring break.
