Any comments on the Excellence Challenge? Is this a new program as the school is emphasizing academics more? If most students don't bother applying to the Ivies, then those are students one is not competing against if one is interested in going to an Ivy. Maybe most students are not looking to work so hard in college?
daarling above says there are butlers, but some other current and recent students say there are not. Someone said that they do darn your socks and clean your room but there are no butlers. What is the actual situation?
Someone said there are no scholarships below age 14. Can anyone confirm or deny that? My kid who might be interested is 10 now, and it seems attractive to me because I hope he could learn French well as a second native language, even though he does not speak it now.
