What do you mean by "chilled"? That could cover a huge range of definitions... What about Ma'alot in Baltimore? I know people who were really, really happy there. What are you looking for?

Oh - when I read "out of town" I thought you meant "not in E"Y." My mistake. Don't know that much about places - just hearsay, really.

Pninim is pretty outa town. There aren't really that many other non academic places (BY type - i don't know other ones). Pninim is really really good.

My daughter went to Pninim (though it was 5 years ago). She loved it there. I was very happy with the place as well (and I am very picky!). Rabbi Meisels is an excellent Mechanech and an outstanding person. The seminary emphasizes growth and Hashkafa of the students over textual knowledge, which is a good thing. The teachers and staff were superb.

Of course that was 5 years ago, so I don't know anything about the current student body.

Sigh. In the olden days on the old site we had an excellent Seminary consultant - Rebitzen Zahava Braunstein a"h. Her expertise in advising girls on seminaries was amazing, even though she only "knew" them from their posts. I wish we could get someone like that now to help us with this thread.

I was in Chedvas which is in Pninim's building.
The dress code is button down shirt and preferably a pleated dark colored skirt (I think - if not, its something like that). The teachers are fantastic! I have never met a bunch of TOTALLY dedicated teachers! They will go out of their way and bend over backwards for their students and pretended it was normal! Each and every one of them is an amazing person and the girls form an amazing relationship with the teachers. They make themselves extremely available to talk things over and to work things out. (Get the idea? :-)) The girls their love it - provided that they put in the effort to have a good year! You gotta at least make it possible. (Yeh, it is kinda hard to teach someone who doesn't come to class and hangs out - even tho, that barely happens) They have 3 meals a day in the dorm made by the cook who loves to cook and bake - its like having a bakery in your building.
Do you want me to list some of the teacher's who teach there? I don't really know if you would know them......
This year they got a different crowd of girls - they say its a better group. I haven't seen them so I don't really know. R' Meisels is running it - he seems to know what he is doing.
If you have any more questions, ask and I'll see what I can do!

No. She didn't post on the site. She just gave us information.

Candid couldn't have been Rebbetzin Braunstein, aleha hashalom. Candid could be very sharp, and judgemental, too - not Rebbetzin Braunstein's style.

jAlso, candid-camera was still posting at least a couple of years ago, and Rebbetzin Braunstein was niftar in 2005.

Got Emunah- So like, i am the type of girl who loves to learn, i love Torah am very into my self growth and stuff. I'm just a regular bais yaakov girl who has not so great skills. My principal said apparently there are girls there who need chizuk that she sent there and then bais yaakov girls she sent there. And in general i want to have good teachers and have a good year. So what do they have for activities and tiuylim? do they let you stay for Pesach? What about shabbos and yom tov meal arrangements?
