Tweakerfd, you said you took a class at Hamilton College. I'm applying to Hamilton College, can you tell me how the campus was? How was the class? Professor? Anything you liked/disliked? Thanks.

NYU values academics 50% and arts/other 50%

that means there is a major emphasis in being involved with theater/dance/whatever

Majinjou1,

Hamilton College campus is pretty nice. The only gripe that I have is that its all the way on the top of a hill (its a pretty steep incline in the initial entrance). Due to it being on top of a hill, its almost always 10X windier than bottom of the hill, which mean more colder in the winter, but nice in the fall and spring.

The Class I took was Calculus II. The professor i had was really helpful, and she made herself available during test days (which is the day she has research and no classes). My friend was in the other Calc II class, he says that his professor is also extremely helpful.

Hamilton College is, also, from the looks of it, is not very diverse. Its pretty homogenous, mostly rich white kids.

Hamilton College is also a huge party school. One day i was walking back to my car, one person walks up to me, hands me a flyer, and says "Guaranteed to get laid or money back warrenty."

The town, Clinton, is pretty hallow. The city near Clinton, Utica, is pretty dead. Many businesses are moving out, the population is declining. The Mall is....bad to say the least. Many of the Bosnian refugees come to Utica, much of Utica, now, is Bosnian. That sorta even out the population that is leaving Utica. All in all, there is not much to do in the town, but i'm guessing that there is much to do on the campus.

NO man i have like nothing. NO leadership, nothing. I'm soooo worried!!!!!!!!!

Bobby, that arts thing is for people who are going to apply to Tisch or are planning to major in something in the arts where you have to send in a portfolio, or audition. It doesnt count for CAS

wow...get laid or ur money back....i know im not applying to hamilton....
