MO-BY (in between. Depends who you ask. Technically not BY but has mostly ]BY hashkafa)
Considered middle point between BY and MO- springboard to find out how MO or BY other places are.
Intellectual classes- a lot to choose from
Some classes taught in Hebrew but all of those are optional

If your planning on going to seminary this year, you would already have made a decision on where to go... i have answered u anyway, bc you wrote in your 1st post in Jan, "i am begining to think about seminary..."
From what you sound like, it seems that DB would be a good fit.
Its not classified as BY, but its more BY than Michlalah. That being said, quite a number of BY girls would go there.
About the learning, it really depends abt what you put in, that you would gain out of it...[really, thats with everything in seminary...8D]
