it is very true that alot depends on the year and which girls come. But, at the same time, seminaries like bnos chava, BJJ, bnos sara, hadar… that have been around for a while are pretty much going to get a certain type every year. It might vary a little but not so drasticly. It’s always a risk, but not as much as going to a new seminary.
I dont know much about Mesores Rochel- I dont know anyone there. I’ve heard that its very intense academicly, and it seems to center around Rebetzin Tarshish.
Either way, it sounds like you’ve narrowed it down to three to apply to. That’s all of the decision you need for now… until acceptances come.
First off, I think you should really talk to girls who are in those seminaries now! other people just hear rumors and often false impressions. You realy dont know unless you’ve been there.
THat said, I’ll mention that I’ve visited these seminaries and have friends in both BJJ and Bnos Sara but Im not actually in either of them. My impression has been that Bnos Sara is alot warmer than BJJ, but its still very acedemic. Both are very good seminaries and are similr in many ways. Its proably best not to decide on one until you have been accepted.
Also, just curiousity, but where’s your daughter in all this? Does she really want the same things as you?
I totaly agree! I think its so ignorant to label someone else as out of town. But I do think that “out of towners” (I dont know any other term to call them)are awesome! Im one and Im proud of it!!!!!
