There's Philly, of course, but Bryn Mawr itself is pretty cool too. Plenty of shops and restaurants; everything you need is in walking distance. [View Full Report]

The restaurants are pretty expensive for college students. Surrounded by other (co-ed) colleges. [View Full Report]

Very nice, very upscale, a bit boring. There's a reasonably lively suburban business strip just a block off campus, but not a lot of student-oriented shops, restaurants, etc. [View Full Report]

The highlight for me was a train station five minutes from the school, useful for getting home since freshmen can't have cars. [View Full Report]

Looks lovely. There are a lot of private schools around - Shipley and Baldwin, which are two of the top schools in the area. Main Line is where all the mansions are, so I get the impression that everything is incredibly safe. [View Full Report]

There were no shops to squander your money on, but the surrounding area was beautiful. I'm talking mansion after mansion. [View Full Report]
