My daughter is down to Amherst and one other school. Are there any parents of current or recent grads that are willing to PM me?
This year has been hard not being able to visit campus so any first hand expereinces good or bad welcome. My daughter is more concerned about the school being the right fit socially. She does not know where she would fit in being from a rural area, and is a non drinker/non party person. She is a serious student and but has a fun side but it is not drinking.
She is interested in being a sceince major and the program all seem very rigid and structured. The language classes seem very structured as well? Is this correct. My daughter likes structure and was wondering how much personal interest can be added to research or upper level class exploration. She feels she will get a great education at Amherst but wonders if it will be a kind of set track withour much personalization and she fears she will be lonely there. After watching countless videos there seems to be groups and she just does not see her group? (but I hate to have her pick a college over some videos).
