Does anyone know of any colleges where kids are smart, and are hardworking, however they are laid back in the sense that they don't necessarily care about getting an A+ but more about learning the material really well? I don't know why but I got the impression of the students of Bucknell as being like that, please share your opinion.

Um...MIT? Only because it's impossible to get an A?
I don't really know what you mean by laidback and hardworking? At MIT, everybody works hard, works together, wants to learn, but people don't expect A+`s because they are very rare. That's my take, but that may not be what you're looking for.

I hear Stanford is really laid back.

Colleges that don't give grades (only written evaluations) are like that... You might want to try Reed- the students have a crazy amont of work, but since they only get written evaluations, they're not working for an A or A+.

A friend who taught at Carleton in Minnesota described the students there in just those terms:
interested in learning but pretty laid back.
