Troll alert (not just based on this).November 23, 2014 12:57 pm at 12:57 pm #1184640Shopping613 🌠Participant
Seminaries, I know of not.
But I do know, you may find better answers, and be taken more seriously if you write with proper grammar.
I’m talking from experience.

Not sure how to answer you… What are u looking for in a seminary? Wats ur type? Wat type of girls do u want in a sem? More hashkafa or more text based?November 23, 2014 5:38 pm at 5:38 pm #1184643
randomex i assume that ur the troll since ur blaming so for that and im not a troll i actaully am in that situation and not making it up thats exactly y i REALLY need help looing for a sem!!November 23, 2014 5:40 pm at 5:40 pm #1184644
mitzvah girl 613 – i am looking for VERY academic and i would prefer yeshivish so thats y im looking into bnos sarah and bnos chava and bjj?November 23, 2014 5:47 pm at 5:47 pm #1184645yentachayaParticipant
BJJ: very mixed crowd, very academic and “text-based”
Bnos Sarah: more out of town crowd, warm and homey, less academic than BJJ but still “text-based”
Bnos Chava: your typical Flatbush girl kind of crowd (or 5-towns), not very text-based
Just be aware that there are many other seminaries out there and each year new ones open. Don’t limit yourself to only 3. Do your research and find out about a lot of places, then narrow your selection based on what you hear. Also speak to alumni of the schools you are considering. They have the most first-hand and accurate information.

yenta chaya thanks for telling me that i actually am not from new york or new jersey and i didnt have the best time with a bais yaakov high school and thats y i left and started college CRAZY early!! its a huge surprise that unfortunately when pple say that their r good kids that could end up off the derech bc their not in the right school – that was me unfortunately and the right school for me was college – thats REALLY sad for a good yeshivish girl to have to say that:( but anyways now im looking forward for another chance with the bais yaakov system and am looking into academic schools like bjj and bnos chava and bnos sarah? which would u recommend? i take night sem also.November 23, 2014 6:12 pm at 6:12 pm #1184647
lol im taking classes at a night sem so hopefully i will get in and also im a very good yeshivish girl its just that the school system didnt work for me!!November 23, 2014 6:13 pm at 6:13 pm #1184648👑RebYidd23Participant
I don’t know if seminaries like people who skip high school and go straight to college.November 23, 2014 7:12 pm at 7:12 pm #1184649
o well depends on the girl most of them go otd but in fact i went more frumer b’h:) and learnt what not to do from the goyim:)November 23, 2014 7:34 pm at 7:34 pm #1184650ivoryMember
Don’t discourage someone who (might be) looking to do the right thing. I think lookingforsem that you should look into not typical seminaries. There are many which are not as popular and where being in college is not a drawback . Good luck!November 23, 2014 8:44 pm at 8:44 pm #1184651
lol im not looking for a college seminary i WANT to go to israel to learn in a frum typical by seminary im a girl who wants a bais yaakov seminary and very academic seminary its not like im otd or st its just that i left early and went to college once again im in a 2nd yr night seminary so its not like im not in any type of hebrew school and im ALWAYS around frum peopleNovember 23, 2014 9:47 pm at 9:47 pm #1184652
We understand what you want. Now it’s your turn to understand what the sems want.
Sems like BJJ, Bnos Sarah/Chava are not looking for girls that left the BY system and went to college early.
There are many wonderful sems that you would really enjoy! Please be realistic… You don’t want to end up in a situation where next year comes around and you weren’t accepted to any seminary.November 23, 2014 11:22 pm at 11:22 pm #1184653
letakein girl – so where would b a good yeshivish academic seminary for girls like me and dont forget that im transfering from a 2nd yr seminary not collegeNovember 24, 2014 12:39 am at 12:39 am #1184654kkls45Member
How about Bnos Avigail? From what I heard, it is going to be a new seminary opening this year by Rebbitzin Tzipporah Heller who does have a lot of experience in these things. It is supposed to be VERY academic, everything is going to be text based. They are going to split up the year into 3 terms. Each term will have a theme – bein adam lamakom, bein adam lachaveiro, and bein adam leatzmo, and everything that will be taught, all tiyulim, and extracurricular things that they do during that term will have to do with the theme.
It sounds like it will be a great seminary, and maybe since it is going to be the first year they will be more open to accepting people coming from different places.November 24, 2014 12:49 am at 12:49 am #1184655
kkls – once again i need a sem that has more experience i have listened to her speeches im sure itll b great but only prob is that i need a school that was opened for more yrs that has already had more experienceNovember 24, 2014 5:31 am at 5:31 am #1184659mitzvahgirl613Participant
Why? That sem sounds amazing for u! Remember to keep ur options open!November 24, 2014 8:28 am at 8:28 am #1184660sm29Participant
LookingforSem, Whatever you choose, may you have success in finding and doing well in SeminaryNovember 24, 2014 5:29 pm at 5:29 pm #1184661
amen:) now i need help looking for a good sem for me
mitzvah girl 613 – u dont kw me and u dont kw what my school put me thru and so thats y that sem wouldnt b good for me since i much rather b in a larger school and b able to choose classes i want to attend like in a college and b around more yeshivish girls and have very academic classes and thats y i was thinking about those sems i dont think bnos avigiel will b able to offer that to meNovember 24, 2014 6:41 pm at 6:41 pm #1184662gavra_at_workParticipant
lookingforsem – Very seriously, I would strongly recommend not going to Benos Chava, etc., as you are too mature (and not malleable enough) for your standard Bais Yaakov Seminary.
How about instead of “Sem”, why not go to the Midrasha at Bar Ilan? It would seem to fit your qualifications.
Barring that, you can try Michlalah (which is also not a “Sem” but does fit your qualifications), but as I understand it they have an extremely difficult entrance exam.

Homestly, I don’t know if you’re mature enough to do anything other than troll, thereby wasting people’s time.
Clarification: my post [;)] was meant to go after ivory’s post [very.] As in, I’m agreeing with him/ her regarding your level of maturity.November 25, 2014 2:26 am at 2:26 am #1184672

lookingforsem do you have a rebbe or teacher or mentor? it sounds like getting one would give you lots of help in many areas
(i’m saying this in a completely non-insulting non-condescending way)November 25, 2014 9:44 pm at 9:44 pm #1184685
oyoy – not insulting at all many people have said that to me only problem is that i feel like im doing all the right stuff so no need for me to get a mentor or teacher or rebbe but once again i do listen to a lot of speeches and go to a night sem so im well off b’h but my problem is that i need a sem and dont know how to apply and dont even know if i really want to go to sem or notNovember 26, 2014 6:50 am at 6:50 am #1184686
So why is your username lookingforsem? If your around 18 you may as well go your to young to get married so why not?November 26, 2014 5:29 pm at 5:29 pm #1184688

Everything he could use a mashpia! Even if you’re doing “all the right stuff” there’s always something that you can discuss with that person.. Right now, for example, this person would help you out with sem!November 26, 2014 7:54 pm at 7:54 pm #1184696
voos epes – sorry it says that i cant see your profile and since your satmar i thought satmars dont use the internet?
