colleges like bennington?

i really like the artsy feel of bennington and their unique application process (sat scores don’t matter, i know s lot of people who got in based of an essay, short story, etc). i’m super set on bennington right now but am applying to a few other schools like bard.

looking for more places to apply to, hopefully with a less traditional application process and a good social scene.

I agree that Bard is a good pick and they have less traditional applications, including an Immediate Decision plan.
Other less traditional schools to look at could include, Goucher; Colorado College; Evergreen; Hampshire; St. John’s; Skidmore; Sarah Lawrence.
