Not bragging, but begging - for good thoughts and prayers if you are so inclined. She has the grades and test scores but it is ALWAYS a long shot. :(

 

I know she will do very well wherever she goes, and I am EXTREMELY proud of her already - but c'mon, it's HARVARD!!!! :D

 

Thank you folks. :)

Has your HS had much success placing kids in Ivy?



for some reason that seems to be a factor.

Good thoughts for your daughter John. I'm so happy our collective kids are smarter than we are in here. :th:

When my son decided not to apply to MIT, I was bummed, but relieved :o

Thanks Frank! She goes to a charter school that is less than 20 years old, but has a 100% rate for kids getting into college, she would be the first to be accepted to an ivy league school. One student last year was wait listed at Harvard and got an interview but no luck. But the school would not let he apply if she was not worthy.

I am sort of ambivalent, but still hopeful. I want her to get in, but don't want her to be too disappointed if she doesn't, if that makes sense. :confused:

It's weird,



my son wanted to go to Georgetown,



but evidently NOBODY from his High School gets into Georgetown.



I'm not sure why that is, but results held true.



Good luck with the process.....



it was interesting watching it work as a parent.



a LOT seemed arbitrary.

The whole process is abritrary. I had an uncle who was very successful, a graduate and BIG contributor to Boston College, but he couldn't get his grand daughter into the nursing school there because BC hadn't "...reached their international quota yet." :mad:
