Still don't have to time to respond adequately, I'm afraid... will try to do so sometime tonight. BTW, yes, the 'areas' were split up into classes of maybe 15-20 students and an instructor. To have everybody together would not have been practical; there are 400 students at AGS (or were when I was there). It was small-group-discussion oriented.
Area II was a philosophically oriented thing where your beliefs are challenged, kind of like a liberal humanist version FR. :)
Area III was warm fuzzy how-does-this-make-you-feel crap. The way one (idiot) fellow student put it was, "Area II is where they rip you apart, Area III is where they put you back together."
Most people (being emotional rather than logical) preferred III over II, but I liked II better.

Thanks for your comments so far. More Q's:
What have you heard about the kid who committed suicide?
Had you heard any complaints from parents about their children's behavior after leaving?
