MY DREAM SCHOOOOOL.
hey giiirl can you talk about choosing wells over smith? I'm in the same position rn and leaning towards wellesley too :)@Anonymous
For me, I knew that Wellesley was the better choice for me right when I visited the campus.
Still, I recommend writing out a list of the pros and cons for both!
These are my lists for Smith and Wellesley!
Things most people don’t know about me:
I actually wrote my common app essay on Childish Gambino.
LOL managed to get into skoolz too
is there any competition between students at wellesley? i'm nervous to go there if everyone will be super smart and competitive. i love going to class and everything, but i don't want to feel like i need to spend all my extra time studying to keep up.@Anonymous
Wellesley is competitive, but I wouldn’t say it’s super cutthroat! I’m not gonna lie and say that Wellesley isn’t a stressful place. It is. There are so many smart, awesome people who have overwhelmed me with their greatness multiple times. However, I think that you’ll be fine if you understand the importance of mental health and happiness. Mental health is above everything or you will burn out. If you find the right balance between your social life and your academic life, you should be fine. For me, I realized that the key to surviving a top college like Wellesley is to accept that there will always be competitive people who strive for the stars, and that I’d rather stay out of that competition just for the best grades and resume. It’s okay to not get good grades all the time. However, I learned to just do my very best all the time, and if my very best requires a quick break with my friends, that’s totally fine!! I really like Wellesley because it has pushed me academically, but it also made me really appreciate spending time with my friends and relaxing.
hi!! i just found out i was accepted to wellesley and i couldn't be more excited! i have a couple questions if you wouldnt mind answering...1. what are the greek sorority group things? I've heard about them but super confused about what they really are? and 2. are athletes separated from the rest of the community/is it cliquey? I am probably going to play a varsity sport and am wondering if that will limit my friends/classes/etc. thank you so much <3@Anonymous
1. We don’t have sororities on campus. However, we have societies on campus that are similar to sororities. The societies on campus are Tau Zeta Epsilon, Zeta Alpha, Phi Sig, Agora, and Shakespeare. There’s also a pre-law society that I don’t know much as well (phi delta phi?? ) I was actually going to tea for a society this semester, but I decided not to because they are a huge time commitment. A lot of my friends just got initiated into societies! Lucky, http://verbalmusings.tumblr.com/, might be able to answer your specific questions. Societies are a great place to do community service, bond with the society members, and also meet a lot of off campus people. Societies hold lots of mixers with Harvard finals clubs, frats, and MIT frats as well :) All the girls in societies are wonderful, and you can start tea-ing second semester of first year.
2. Not really! A lot of my friends are actually varsity athletes! Because Wellesley is D3, it’s not as intense compared to my other friends at D1 schools. Athletics won’t get in the way of a social life here at Wellesley! They really aren’t that clique-y! However, it will be harder to manage time with a varsity sport. You have to balance academics, your sport, as well as your social aspect of your life!
Hi, I'm the anon from before who's coming to Wellesley next year who's going to SOC! OMG I would LOVE to speak with you in person (especially bc it seems that you might have some things you might answer that some girls might not be able to? heh) I actually don't have a tumblr, but was wondering if I could talk to you on fb? If you're fine with that, I'll give you my link in the next ask (if that's ok)? :'D So psyched to be a Wendy!! :')@Anonymous
YES!!! Please link your facebook! I’ll be glad to talk to you in person :)
