Rayrick - I could possibly write their marketing material I am that big of a fan of the school.
However, I know what you mean about early loves. S never saw Midd until he had been accepted, but had another earlier school that I thought would be top of his list. It was odd that it fell to three when all the acceptances came in. While I can speak highly about Midd at the drop of a hat, I will also admit that there are a lot of great schools and fit should be paramount when choosing from good options. S probs would have done well academically wherever he went to college if I am honest, but the relationships with professors and the opportunities for a lot of other stuff specific to Midd? I can't say, but I am so glad it's happening. His professors are, in a word, awesome.
