I remember talking on the tour with my guide who was from New York and mentioned that for her it was a great 3 year break from NYC.
However, I have been in VA for the last 6 years and I'm originally from near Philly. I don't know how much longer I want to stay down in VA, let alone go to school in rural VA. I know it's a great school, but I feel like I've had my break from Philly.
Would it really be dumb to pass up W&L to go back home and go to Temple/Nova/Rutgers?
That's funny. I'm from VA, (and definitely miss it), but I've been living near Philly for the past 3 years. I'm actually ready to head back down to VA, but I can't because W&L is out of my league (W&M is too, but I applied there for sh*ts and giggles)...so now I'm looking at going to either South Carolina or Fla, or hey, maybe somewhere all the way across the country.
As for Lexington...it really isn't that bad, it's actually a really beautiful part of VA and the town is kinda *cute* and the mountains are right next to you. I guarantee that if you go there, you'll fall in love with the place in Sept/Oct...and there really is plenty to do. Believe it or not, Lexington gets quite a bit of tourists breezing through too--the Natural Bridge is right around there. Not to mention you'll meet some interesting people in town--VMI is (literally) right next door to W&L.
