Yes, Thumper, with these admits rates, I sometimes think that they should all be on the “don’t bother applying” list. But someone has to get in, and his resume is as good as any other “unhooked” applicant. He will mainly be applying to schools that offer guaranteed merit for high stats and those that have some potential for competitive scholarships. We’ll foot the bill for a couple of these long-shot apps, but again, I’d rather them be to the ones we have a chance of affording. If I understand their processes correctly, Princeton and Stanford are off the table, but MIT, Harvard, and Duke might be possible if he should win the acceptance lottery. What I would like to know is “am I understanding them correctly?"
Mom2, I found it odd too after all I'd been reading on CC. I'll have to go back and check the assets, but IIRC, they said to split them 50/50.
