I applied early decision at Swarthmore, but now I'm starting to regret that. Most likely my regrets are just the result of committing myself to the school, and that I'd feel the same way once I made my final decision no matter what school.
But also I've made the mistake of reading too many Swarthmore forums, which scared me. So now I'm afraid Swarthmore is either entirely populated by super nerds or by hipsters. I consider myself a fairly normal fairly middle of the road person, at least in terms of not identifying myself with any kind of subgroup. Would you say that Swarthmore students are mostly in that category of being generally normal people, weird in their own ways but not in the way that can be defined as a hipster or a hippie or what not?
More importantly, are people nice and friendly?
Thanks a lot, I just really need to ease my mind.
