I go to an out of town Bais Yaakov and I listen to non jewish movies, watch tv (but we don't own a tv) and I don't talk to boys. I want a seminary that isn't BY but the girls are still good girls, seminary that isn't academic, and I want the seminary to serve 3 meals a day.

Maybe Ateres or Me'Ohr. If you want something with career training options, maybe look into Bnos Chana. You could also look into Midreshet Tehillah, which is less Bais Yaakov-y than the others. Good staff and intellectual learning, but not heavy on the academics.

Based on my conversations with people I know who went to Afikei, the learning there is definitely more hashkofah-based, not very demanding at all. It's a growing seminary--the girls really develop in their avodas Hashem. The staff is supposed to be very good and very warm. They serve supper, but students make their own breakfasts and lunches in the dorm kitchens.
