It has a name for getting nice and sweet girls, not the smartest or most academic but very very sweet, outgoing and friendly

We have seminary girls very often (besides this year!)
I like the bya girls the best.
Very nice sweet genuine girls.
I also found them to be outgoing and friendly.
just wholesome girls

The administration is very mentchlich.
My daughter is finding the classes amazing, loves the teachers.
Nice, middle of the road seminary. It seems to me that they don't pressure the girls with endless reports like other seminaries do. My daughter has enough time to visit our many family members.
My daughter appreciates all the little extras that they do for the girls, they go above and beyond in many little ways. Maybe other seminaries do that too, but not all.

How are the dorms? The food? The programing? I know this year was COVID impacted but in general do they help the girls with Shabbos arrangements if needed?

There are PLENTY of extremely smart and academic girls in BYA. To be accepted to BYA, a girl must not only be a solid BY girl with a pleasant personality, but have a very solid grade point average as well.

I stand corrected, then. Based on the girls I know who went there, that was the impression that I got

I think it depends on the year. They like to get girls who are academic, but it's not like they won't accept girls with average grades of they have space a d the girl is a great girl.

Having been to BYA. BYA has great down to earth girls a lot of out of towners.

There is someone that helps out with Shabbas arrangements- don’t know what it’s like now. Great classes and teachers. I would say the school is more Bais yakov than other seminaries.

I believe they have different classes for your level of Hebrew.
