Hi all, I'm a senior in HS and am trying to get all the perspectives that I can get for my college search. Before I begin, I want to preface that I'm an Asian female from a mid-income family. I'm certain that I want to go to a small and competitive LAC and I think that I have the stats, recommendations, and resume to be able to consider schools like W&L. However, I wanted some opinions on W&L because it has an amazing program for those who want to go into law and social work like I do. The problem is that on paper, W&L is my dream school. A small community in a small town where an honor code is enforced and where there's a great path into law school. Additionally, when I toured it, I absolutely adored the campus and my tour guide was extremely down to earth and it was evident that he loved his school However, when reading reviews of the school online, I see a lot of people mentioning that the school isn't very inclusive to those who aren't big into the party scene. I'd definitely consider rushing a sorority, but it's not something that anyone in my immediate or extended family has done, and we might have some financial issues with going Greek. I want to go to a school where my ideas (as a left leaning moderate), as well as my morals and my body are respected. Should I still be looking at W&L as one of my top choice schools, or would I be better off ED-ing a school like Davidson?2 replies
