Review of Pomona College

Rating: StarStarStarStarStar_gray By: Anonymous, Alum Posted: September 25, 2010

My review

The Good:

Everything is centered around the (undergraduate) students, creating a virtual utopia for people that love to learn.

The Bad:

As it has become more well-known, it seems to be attracting more students that are only interested in the prestige and are not necessarily committed to a true liberal arts education.

Would I do it again?

Yes, I had an absolutely amazing experience at Pomona. It truly shaped me as an individual and had a great impact on my future.
