I want to attend Wesleyan when I graduate, I have some questions?

<p>I will be a high school graduate in 2013, and I feel like I need to start focusing on college now. I want to go to college for writing or possibly film, and Wesleyan seemed like such a perfect match! I want a free feeling and open college, and after researching about Wes, I realize just how great it would be for me.</p>

<p>Here's a little background on me:
I had some trouble in the first semester; I am smart but lazy. I was still on honor roll but way below my average. I picked it up my second semester after realizing my laziness was hurting my future (go figure, right? haha. Wake up call!). I get almost all A's, but a couple B's. </p>

<p>I go to a small (like 30 students in my whole grade small) school, and there isn't many classes to choose from. We only have on language (Spanish) and only two years max of the class. We don't have many clubs either, but I am in most of them. </p>

<p>My first question is, do you think this would hurt my chances to get into Wesleyan? Not having the classes and extracurricular activities and such. By the time I graduate, I will be in honors Calc and honors English, those are the only two above average classes we have.</p>

<p>Other questions are just the simple ones,
Do you enjoy the campus?
Are the academics/professors as good as I read they are?
Are the students friendly and amiable?
Where you happy you went there?</p>

<p>I know I have written a lot, so thanks in advance!</p>

<p>I'm not at Wesleyan yet but will be in the fall, and I'm wanting to study writing and film too (both are reasons I picked Wes). You're right that Wes is great for both of these things. However, I don't have much personal experience with being at Wesleyan yet, but ask me in a few months...</p>

<p>With regards to your other questions, your school shouldn't hurt you; universities usually look at applicants within the realm of their school, the opportunities available there, and the highest classes they are able to get to in that environment. Your application will be accompanied with a profile of your school, so the university can look at your achievement in context. In that way, it shouldn't hurt at all; in fact, it could help if you're from a small school with not too many opportunities but you are actively trying to make the most of those chances and take high level classes and get involved with what is there (or even starting your own club/extra-curricular on your own if what you like isn't represented there).</p>

<p>As a sophomore, the most important thing you can do now is to keep up with your studies and get involved with stuff that's meaningful to you. You still have a lot of time until the college process really gets going, so don't get too focused/worried too early.</p>

<p>Thanks! I know I shouldn't worry too much this early, but I do, haha.
Coming from a small school I'm really looking at college as a motive to get somewhere other than just my small little town. I want to meet new people and see the world a little more, I think Wes just has the perfect environment.
Congrats an getting in! :)</p>
