<p>Hey guys-</p>

<p>I'm a high school senior who is currently deciding which school to apply to early decision. My three choices are Hamilton, Vassar, and Wesleyan. I live in the northeast and I am really preppy. Although this may seem superficial to some, I want to know where I will fit in best. Which of my 3 top schools is the preppiest? Which school has the most affluent student body? Do all of them have elements of prep or are they more laid back or focused on the arts? Any help is appreciated! Thank you!</p>

<p>You're trolling, right? If you're not, Vassar is not a good fit at all, considering our need blind admissions process for domestic students and the fact that 60% of students are on financial aid.</p>

<p>And it doesn't just 'seem' superficial; it is superficial. </p>

<p>Vassar is a LAC. It focuses on the arts. It's full of hipsters. People who are concerned about how affluent the other students won't make many friends. Several of my friends here are QuestBridge scholars whose families live well below the poverty line. </p>

<p>Being pretentious and elitist about intelligence is one thing. There are plenty of pretentious people here; it's a highly selective school. But being elitist about money? That's not even remotely okay.</p>

<p>So, I'm going to assume you're trolling. Because. Really. What? I promise if you come here, someone will make sure you check your privilege.</p>

<p>I visited both Vassar and Wesleyan so I can speak for those two but not Hamilton. Like averagesnarker said, Vassar is definitely hipster but there are a good amount of preps there, but I dont think there will be as many as you would hope. Wesleyan was similar, but the kids I saw while on campus were definitely more hipster than preppy, I could be wrong though considering I only saw a portion of the students.</p>
