I just got my acceptance letter!!!! Im so pumped I cant even tell you. I had no interest to go anywhere else besides there and I was so relieved to get in. Anyone else plan on going next year? By the way – if you got in feel cool because apparently they had tonnnnnzzz of girls apply this year and they were really selective. Thats another reason I want to go – imagine what an exlusive group of 65 girls!
Hatzlacha on your decision!February 8, 2013 1:05 am at 1:05 am #929551
aaaaaaaahhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!! same here!!!!!!!! were gonna rock the house… its gonna be the best seminary ever!!!!February 8, 2013 1:19 am at 1:19 am #929553

omg this is awesome. We already got five coffee room members going to machon raya! So so far we got
Thats five. Not bad at all. It actually makes sense because we are the gals who are open minded and actually know what internet is! So heres a question for the panel – what made you decided to go to Machon Raaya? Im very interested if we are all going for the same reasons. Its crazy because its the only place I wanted to go and it was my worst interview! BH is all I can say.
Btw TorahistheIkur dont be scared – I dont know ONE person going. But thats the great part about seminary I think – you really start with a clean slate.
Supposedly there are being a lot of out of towners this year – Im so excited to meet some girls from Texas:)February 10, 2013 9:25 pm at 9:25 pm #929563
soo funny its the only school i wanted to got to i chose it cuz its intellectual and academic and the girls r thinking girls and its out of towny (im from out of town) and it has a warm atmospere where the girls r open minded (actually know wats goin on in the world and not just sheltered) and the girls are growth oriented and not just fakers and im obessesed with it!!!February 10, 2013 9:31 pm at 9:31 pm #929564
from what i hear there r girls from chicago miami passiac la texas brooklyn and manhatten coming!!! its gonna b an amazing yr!!!February 10, 2013 10:22 pm at 10:22 pm #929565
and queens baltimore and far rockaway… dont know so much bout other places im curious about places out of the countryFebruary 10, 2013 10:22 pm at 10:22 pm #929566
OMG sounds awesome – especially Texas! Haha dont ask Im obsessed with texas for some odd reason. So you basically articulated word for word what I wanted as well and ye ever since the open house I was obsessed. I think they have their own basketball court – awesome! So yeah it seems like the only place with smart, mature, OPEN minded and NICE girls. Thats just the perfect combo!February 10, 2013 11:17 pm at 11:17 pm #929567
Mazal tov to all of you! as a former bymrer (i know you couldn’t guess) i’m thoroughly jealous!!! but can i just say something? we’re also known for not being snobbish, which i’m sure none of you are, cuz otherwise you wouldn’t be going, but some of this is starting to sound ktzat, well snobby 🙂 no offense to any of you, as i’m sure you’re all fantabulous people, andi wish i was going back with you!
btw, out of towners are awesome!!!
enjoy!February 11, 2013 12:13 am at 12:13 am #929568
What in the world is snobby in this post?February 11, 2013 12:16 am at 12:16 am #929569
I went two years ago – do I get included in the MR CR count? ^_^February 11, 2013 12:29 am at 12:29 am #929570
aaahhh!!! im so excited to meet you all… so the reasons i chose machon raaya was because of academics, the girls, and the fact that its supposed to be a really warm homey place… and yeah go out of towners!!!! cant wait to meet you all 🙂February 11, 2013 12:31 am at 12:31 am #929571
btw TorahistheIkkur u forgot clevelandFebruary 11, 2013 12:39 am at 12:39 am #929572
So yeah it seems like the only place with smart, mature, OPEN minded and NICE girls.
it’s true, but you don’t wanna make e/o else jealous 🙂 so just don’t say only-that’s a secret!!!
of course you count oom-once you’re a raayit, you’re a raayit for life!February 11, 2013 12:52 am at 12:52 am #929573
Raayits? no no no. Definitely Raayans – this is a precedent established by the first year girls. 😛February 11, 2013 12:58 am at 12:58 am #929574
oops sorry bout cleveland there r forsure places i didnt mention also i also chose mr cuz i heard the girls r really solid by girls hope this is true cuz all of wat we r mentioning would make an amazing skool!!! im so excited!!!February 11, 2013 1:02 am at 1:02 am #929575
oh and bymrer – you forgot nutty, wacky, geeky, and nerdy. (Don’t know about your year, but mine had all those in abundance. ^_^)February 11, 2013 1:03 am at 1:03 am #929576
i really wish there was away we can actually “meet” each other i guess well just have to meet each other nxt urFebruary 11, 2013 1:57 am at 1:57 am #929577
nooo i wana come!!! cud i plss??? sem sounds awsum!!! i either wana go to maachon raya or bnos sara… mayb ill just drop outta hs and go instead of 10th grade!!!February 11, 2013 2:46 am at 2:46 am #92957813Participant
Main reason I applied is because they stress real academics and learning but they’re sooo chilled about stuff. Then there’s the plus of being with outa towny girls like yours truly!!! I actually know two Lakewood girls and one Brooklyn girl from camp who are going, and they’re the cutest!!! I’m the only one from my school who is going. Everybody be my friend cuz I’m all ALONE!February 11, 2013 3:37 am at 3:37 am #929579
oom-those are part of the criteria!!! mrs. rosenblum only takes those who are thoroughly wacked, geeky, nerdy, and all that stuff!!! bymr wacked job nerds! thats us!!!February 11, 2013 3:47 am at 3:47 am #929580
^_^ ^_^ ^_^February 11, 2013 4:07 pm at 4:07 pm #929581
Dont worry 13. It sounds like the type of place you make friends in a minute. And yeah – I definitely am excited for you out of towners. They are usually the nicest, most normal people! (tell me if Im wrong hehe) Even the in towners who go are the types who arent New Yorkers etc through and through and they really want to go live in some random city.
So how was all of your interviews? Were you all confident that you were going to get in before you got in? And I hope you all know how to chill because even though I plan on working really hard we are going to party a lot as well – thats an order! No spending the whole year with your head buried in books and notes. I love their elective system – its so awesome.
Did I mention that Im SOOOOOOOOO excited??February 12, 2013 1:59 am at 1:59 am #929582
machon raaya sounds awesome!!! im not up to picking sems yet but whats the dif bet bnos sara and machon raaya? cuz i like those two the most..February 12, 2013 2:00 am at 2:00 am #929583
i think one dif is that MR doesnt mind questions rite? what abt bnos sara? more yeshivish than MR>February 12, 2013 4:12 am at 4:12 am #929584tickle me pinkMember
i got accepted to bymr tooo!!!!! im super excited, i legit screamed when i opened my letter!! im soooo xcited for next year and we are gonna rock the house 😀 its gonna be one of the best years of my life!February 13, 2013 7:14 am at 7:14 am #929585
@ThePurpleOne i applied to machon raya and bnos sarah and i found there are many similarities and differences mainly the atmosphere machon raya is very warn easy to have a relationship with teachers where as the the atmosphere in bnos sarah is not as warm u have to initiate a relationship and it is very uncommon for girls to have relationships with teachers (bear in mind they are very chashuv and busy ) also the gorls machon raya attracts are more worldly and diverse where the majority of the girls at bnos sarah are yishivish both are great schools tho!!! also bnos sarah is mostly ivrit b’ ivrit (u have to write 25 page reports in ivrit) both bnos sarah and machon raya are very academic schools hope that clears it up keep in mind things change from yr to yr and the girls really make a difference so what each school is like now may b different in 2 yrsFebruary 13, 2013 7:16 am at 7:16 am #929586
also question for all u future machon rayers? idk wtvr it is where did u guys all apply besides machon raya? as i said in my previous post i also applied to bnos sarah and binasFebruary 13, 2013 5:05 pm at 5:05 pm #929587
I also applied to Bnos Chava and Ateres. Ateres totally wasnt for me. If I didnt get into Machon Raya then I would have gone to Bnos Chava. But to be honest I really didnt want to go there…way too big and not as warm and not as out of town. Sooo happy Machon Raya worked. So what did you guys think of Mrs. Rosenblum?February 13, 2013 8:56 pm at 8:56 pm #929588plaidMember
Very excited for all of you that you’re going to have the incredible experience of going to really special seminaries!
Just a reminder that you’re still on the Internet, where halachos of shemiras halashon definitely apply, and ANYONE can read what you’re saying. Also, most people take what they read at face value, so though you definitely wouldn’t want to cause any harm, please be careful of how you say things.February 13, 2013 11:50 pm at 11:50 pm #929589
