Whats with Neve Girls?

Those in the orthodox community are probably familiar with the BT girl's seminary. For those readers who are not familiar Neve is basically the preeminent seminary for BT girls. It is located in Israel and has been around for over 30 years. Anyone really interested can go to I have gone out with several girls from this seminary. The girls I have dealt with seem to be heavily brainwashed. Now don't get my wrong I realize that in every seminary, yeshiva or any kind of communal group there will be a certain level of brainwashing. Thinking for yourself always get people in trouble just read 1984 if you don't believe me. But why are these girls spending one or even two years at this seminary. Because it seems to me that the girls who go there end up not knowing how to think for themselves. Suddenly they can't make a decision without asking their rabbis, rebbetzins or whoever their advisor is. So my question is why not just save yourself the time girls and get a rabbi to begin with. Then simply do whatever he tells you to do. No matter what he tells you to do. Do it with complete conviction and devotion. After all whats the point of learning when all your doing is just preparing yourself to blindly follow anyway. Please note this does not apply to all Neve girls. I'm sure there are plenty of girls who go there or went there who are actually capable of thinking for themselves and don't spout the company line. However I have unfortunately not met any yet.
