Also, if your daughter is at all interested, take a look at Kalamazoo College or others like it. Lots of blondes there -- and the students all working quite hard. Our tour guide was a pre-med, serious blonde girl who was double majoring in Spanish (lots of double majors there because of the intense focus on study abroad), and had gone abroad twice and worked in a hospital in Ecuador as part of one of her college trips.
One dad I met on tour had a son there, and said it was *surprisingly rigourous*. Yes, this is a plug for Kalamazoo. I was very impressed. It is TINY, though, and that, I think is why my daughter ended up not choosing it. It was just a liitle too small.
