Haverford College Reviews
Review Haverford College
Registration process is painless--it's very unlikely that you won't get into a class you want unless it is extremely popular. Professors are always a matter of personal preference--there are teaching styles that work well for some and not for others. I have really enjoyed almost all of my professors, and respected them both as experts in their field and excellent instructors. Classes are engaging, unique, and offer knowledge in areas that are especially interesting to Haverford students. We have a Peace, Justice, and Human Rights department. A lot of our classes examine very relevant issues around economics, race, politics, scientific innovation, etc. The workload is moderate, but you definitely have the power to control your own stress. Professors are known for giving more/less work and they're very clear about assignments in their syllabi. We also have self-scheduled exams! Whether you stay in your comfort zone or challenge yourself with your classes, your workload almost always depends on time management.
The most amazing school you will ever go to. The kids are so smart and the culture is both collaborative and fun. People study hard but also know how to have a good time. When applying to colleges I got so caught up in going to an Ivy League or "big name" school but every employer from J.P. Morgan, Goldman Sachs, and Morgan Stanley look so highly on Haverford students. If you want to go to a "presidious" school save it for grad school. Most Haverford students get into Harvard, U of Penn, and Columbia for a Ph.D or MBA. Don't look down upon Haverford because it is truly an amazing place.
I loved the campus and its proximity to Philadelphia. Haverford has a lot to offer, so long as you make an effort to use your resources. The fact that the school is so small makes it a bit limiting not just socially but also professionally, seeing as big recruiters generally don't come her. However, it has the reputation for being academically excellent, and the curriculum is rigorous enough to exercise your critical thinking, creativity, and work ethic.
