The Princeton Review (you know, that beacon of college admissions guidance and the publication that tells us where the best party schools are) took a survey of prospective college students earlier this year and asked them and their parents a bunch of questions. The results were released yesterday. The College Hopes and Worries survey revealed the student and parent perspective of the college admissions process. But the only question that most interested me was:
What "dream" college do you wish you (your child) could attend if acceptance and/or cost were not issues?
And the survey results are:
1 Stanford University Harvard College
2 Harvard College Stanford University
3 Columbia University Princeton University
4 Princeton University Notre Dame
5 New York University Yale University
6 Yale University New York University
8 MIT Duke University
9 University of Southern California USC
10 University of California - Berkeley MIT
Yay! USC is now considered a dream school! And Notre Lame didn't even make the top 10 on the students list!
How odd. Apparently, I'm having trouble reading line 7.
Oh well. It can't be that important.
