So my top three dorms in order (as it is on my housing application) are: Snitchcock, South, BJ.
But recently I've been struggling over Snitchcock, mostly because of its reputation for being "beyond quirky". I'm quirky myself but I tone it down and I don't want to see the extremes. South on the other hand seems more preferable because it's more recent, has "better" dining apparently (though you can go to both dining halls so this doesn't seem too bad), and the doubles are a pretty nice size with lots of natural sunlight. But I also like Snitchcock's proximity to the quad and I'm a pretty lazy person, so waking up 5 minutes before class starts sounds perfect to me.
I know there's still a few weeks before the deadline to revise housing applications, but I'm not sure if I should change my preference. Either way I'm hoping to get a double and nice house culture, though it seems like South has less distinct house culture because they're not as separate (this is what I heard during my stay at BJ).
Aside from that, BJ seems like a mix of the two. It's quirky but also a little social, and I enjoy that. I'm introverted but also like being social, so I would prefer to be able to spend some time with my headphones on and not really worrying about parties going on or whatever. I'm not a party person, and no drugs or alcohol (I'm a clean slate as far as that goes). But BJ is pretty old and the amenities aren't as "shiny" as South...
So is there anyone else that's struggling with these? Is there anything I've missed mentioning? I really wish I could spend a week in each to get a feel for them... I really liked Snitchcock in the beginning but I don't know if I can handle the reputation.
