Uppers

My Friends that I've made really made me good about myself.

Downers

The floor could be nicer though. It could just be me, really. I don't know.

Comments

Don't look at the floor. Look up, it will be better.

Spelman has an application process similar to most schools. However, Spelman's essay question is distinctive.

Quality of Life

Cost of living is somewhat expensive, however the experience is very much worth the money. We, along with other colleges in the AUC, use the library located on Clark Atlanta University's campus. There have not been any incidents of crime or safety issues on campus in the four years I have been here and students can agree that we feel generally very safe in this environment.

Admissions

Spelman provides its applicants with essay questions that are unique to the institution and its values. Online applications are preferred over paper applications.

Academics

There are general, major, and minor requirements. We also have exceptional research programs, various electives, and excellent study abroad programs. The class sizes are often small and teachers are able to give you one on one assistance.

Admissions

Prospective students must fill out an application complete with a critical essay section, financial aid section, scholarship section, and scholarship opportunities either on the Spelman website or through the Common Application. Prospective students may choose between Early Action or Regular Decision.

Academics

Academics at my school (especially in the sciences) is both excellent and rigorous. General requirements offer a diverse liberal arts background and major degree requirements give ample preparedness for life after Spelman. While research opportunities are few on campus, they are easy to find with perseverance. The workload is tough and can sometimes be stressful. Grading depends on the professor but overall is more stringent in the sciences than in liberal arts. Competitiveness is very high among students.

Quality of Life

All awesome!

Admissions

One unique question on the application was whether the applicant was related to any Spelman College alumnae. It led me to believe that legacy is very important here. There were early decision, early action and regular decision applications. The financial aid office was very open with meeting with applicants and provided me with a lot of assistance.

Academics

Class sizes were small for me because my department (computer science) is small. Grading is pretty fair, the work load can be vigorous but the professors genuinely care for the welfare of their students. Research opportunities are abundant and Spelman actually encourages studying abroad.

Admissions

There are barely any scholarship opportunities. When I applied you needed to complete an essay, but you were given the opportunity to apply using the standard application
