Im really new to this. With his resume I posted above, would Rice be a pipe dream, long shot, stretch, etc. for my son? I think his SAT's were pretty good, escpecially for a sophomore. I think his scores on the SAT will likely go up some the next time he takes it. However, I don't want to get his hopes up too much about a school like Rice, or any other school that just isn't going to happen. I think he was flattered by all of the form letters he received from very good schools after his pre-ACT test thingy. Soon enough, I will merely become an advisor to him as I fully expect for him to find the school thats right for him.
I wish I could push him to the Air Force Academy, but don't think so.
