College Post #2 – Getting into Ivy Leagues (and other selective colleges)
Here’s the 2nd official college-themed post to discuss admissions to Ivy League and other harder-to-get-into universities.
There are likely some unique considerations for parents in Chicago, given the existence of selective high schools that are filled with the top kids in the entire city.
Will your child be able to stand out and excel among so many smart, talented, and hard working kids? Is it better to be the big fish in a smaller (read: lower achieving) pond?
Below, I’ve copied the comments from the HS 2014 post. Apologies if I left anything out. I didn’t include the references to the comment # since it wouldn’t apply so it may be difficult to follow, but I’m sure you can get the gist.
Feel free to continue the discussion here.
