Q:Are you finding that Oxford is harder than Wellesley or easier?
Oh man, this is a difficult question to answer. It’s not so much easier or more difficult as… very different. At Oxford, I’ve got TONNES more reading, but I only have 2 h of class a week, whereas at Wellesley, my schedule was filled with classes, labs, office hours, etc. At Oxford, I have to write way more essays, but the topics are easier and the format is more relaxed than those assigned at Wellesley. At Oxford, my classes are one-on-one, so I’ve got to prep more for each individual sessions, but I also don’t have any tests, quizzes or exams like I do at Wellesley, so (in theory) I can abandon the material at the end of the week.
Does that make sense? I’m afraid that I can’t really answer your question, but I’ve done my best.
