So my dd is finishing up her Sophomre year this month. they've given her paperwork and she has to sign up with this website via the school to track stuff etc.. She is also suppose to start narrowing down her choices for college. she has a top 10 list but thats just the ivies plus 2 schools outside the country. Then she has a top 50 but i'm not sure she's properly made that list. So what criteria did your kids have when looking at schools. She's realy hoping for an IVY but fully aware that she might not get in to one. the only thing she's sure of is that she wants a school outside NY but I'm pretty sure she'll be happy with one thats just not in the NYC area.
