So I just did this college selection thing on Princeton Review's site. (My brother had it linked off his site.) So, the results were interesting:

  • 65% Tufts University

  • 65% University of California-Berkeley

  • 62% Georgetown University

  • 62% Rice University

  • 62% Yale University

Kind of interesting. Maybe I really should have applied to Rice as I was thinking about doing. I had no geographic preference, and did stress financial need, which were right when I was in high school. The one thing that I didn't stress was engineering. I also said education, business, and computers were possible degrees. The safety schools are interesting:

  • 69% University of Michigan-Ann Arbor

  • 67% University of Virginia

  • 67% Yeshiva University

  • 65% Georgia Institute of Technology

  • 65% University of Richmond

So the one thing I don't get from the thing is why my "safety schools" have a higher percentage fit than my good match schools. And I don't think even with my high quality high school record I would have though of Michigan or GaTech as safety schools . . . .
