It's not NY or NJ... you're talking a 3 hr + trip each way. Girls travel for dating or simchos but it's not like people are hopping off to Brooklyn or Lakewood - they're in school and Maalot/WITS keeps the girls really busy. It's a serious program. Some girls have small part time jobs while they're there but for the most part, you're in class and doing work. But there's plenty of social life in the school and in the community in general if you want to be a part of things.

How is it with shiduchim and how out of town girls feel there if they don’t have family in Baltimore?

Can't really answer to that... I didn't want to start dating until I finished my BA and waited until the summer when I went home to start. But I think every girl is different - I definitely had friends who went out from their boarding families!
Not having family there was not an issue for me - I had a few friends there from camp/seminary - and made new friends in WITS. There are also plenty of shadchanim there.

Thank you! why did you choose WITS and are you happy you did? Did you live with friends in an apartment or boarded (alone or with a friend). Did you have places to go for Shabbos and did you learn computer science and is it a good degree for a job?
