I am requesting opinions from other moms to see how they feel about this. I am applying for admission to an all girl school for my 7 year old for the fall. I know that only 17% of the school receive need based financial aid. I would like to know if I should not try to get her in based on the fact that I am not a millionaire,and that so many of the other parents have so much money?
I believe that she will flourish in this fast paced academic setting,my concern is that if she will feel that she has less than the other students. Her father is non existant in her life and I feel that a strong academic backround would give her what she needs to succeed in this world. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Yes, if you feel she would benefit academically, and they offer financial aid/scholarships then go for it!! I worked at (an expensive) sleep-away summer camp and we had about 20% of our population there is scholarships and they did fine, even excelled. You do not need to be made of money for her to have a positive experience there!!
