Meh, it depends on how you've been raised, i come from a lower middle class family and im not too picky about dorms when i go on college visits, some parents make a HUGE deal out of it though.

I went to Washington U in St Louis this summer and one of the Moms was asking a question every 2 seconds and made an incredibly annoying gasping noise after the tour guide answered each question...

I just can't do it because it's cramped. Not the living conditions, it's just too small.
I'm upper-middle to upper class, so I'm used to much bigger accommodations.

Dorms with AC? Now that's luxury!

Dorming is seriously a great thing to do. Would definitely recommend it, even if you go to college local. There's nothing quite like it.

Yeah, they're small. That's part of it.

Well, I have to. The only places I want to go to college are not local, so I'd better get used to it now.
