Never heared of the last two, but I know a bit about michlala and maohr. In general Michlala is less beis yakovy than ma'ohr, even though it has chareidi hashkafas, it's also more academic. I heared great things about both. You can ask more specific questions and I'll try to answer.

I will see how I can help. But, it seems like you are crossing a broad spectrum here.
Michlalah is considered very intellectual, a lot of studying/courses, etc. It is considered more modern - they allow you to wear jean skirts, visit ben yehudah at night, and basically no major rules that are standard by rules.
2) ma'or is considered a by seminary - it is not considered as intellectual, but definitely a lot of learning/growing goes on there. Most girls I see that come out of there come out EXTREMELY happy and feel they have grown tremendously. The only negative I sometimes here about it is that it's a little too "mushy" for some people..supposedly, very heimish..
3) seminar - i know people who loved it and others who hated it. This is considered one of the more frum BYS (after bjj and hadar probably). Quite a few people told me they are a little too much of a "wanna be" seminary and are always try to imitate the frummer bys so they can say they are frummer. However, basically everyone says they made some great and wonderful friends there but didn't really get to make a kesher with any of the teachers or get 1-on-1 with them and didn't really gain much out of the classes, but did walk away with a great chevra.
4) chochmas leiv - never heard of it..does it go under a diff. name??? can you tell me the name of the person who runs it?? I may know of it and just refer to it as something else?
hope this info helps...

One more thing. If you are planning to get college credit through the seminary. I believe YU/Stern only recognizes Michlalah and for the others you would need to go through Touro.

I only know Michlala. It is an accredited college by the Israeli Ed. Ministry. The students can be from dl/MO to super charedi. The limudei chol are taught from a mostly charedi viewpoint. You can get degrees in education, sciences, and several other fields that frum schools just now are starting to get into. They have been doing it for years. You can also get a MA there.

I haven't got the hock about how its going yet this year, but the good news about it is that it won't fold, Rabbi Kurland's schools are well established and have good teachers. Rabbi Margolin was very excited about it because he says its everything Darchei Binah girls have plus better but I think the whole idea is weird: Many of the Darchei Binah teachers specificly like teaching there because its strong frum school but not Bais Yaakov (I mean I think its a little Bais Yaacovy but whatever) so they could say what they wanted and the girls not only think, but ask good questions.

what i heard about chochmas leiv is that it's for the girls that went to bais yaakov all their lives and are therefore used to a bais yaakov crowd, but, they have minds of their own and do not want to go to another bais yaakov but want to go to a place that allows them to think and be their own person. true?

Im not convinced that Michlala is necessarily that academic, plenty of girls seem to go there and get away withuot doing that much. I think it has the potential to be so though-they have great teachers such as rabbi Yehoshua Hartman.

Michlala is all around an awesome awesome school, they also have great teachers (as mentioned above, the girls love Rabbi Hartman), the campus is nice, the food is good but it isn't "Bais Yaakov type" so if you think anyone who doesn't wear socks is a shiksa, it ain't the place for you!
