Student Ratings

Student at This School - Grad Year 2015

Overall Rating

I love this school because I feel relaxed on the campus and it is easy to concentrate and study in the academic-centered atmosphere. I would not pick my roommate, trust the school to their job. I would take classes you believe you will excel at, not ones that you know nothing about, this is encouraged, but your GPA will suffer, so it isn't worth the chance.


Former Student - Last Attended 2010

Overall Rating

Agnes Scott was the best college experience I could have asked for: The environment is supportive, engaging, and incredibly fun. Between old campus traditions and new programs being created every year there was never a dull moment.
