Are there "Prep-Ivys"? If so, what are they?
I go to a public Highschool that is slightly above average and is relatively good compared to its surroundings. After speaking with an admissions officer at Columbia, he said that they don't admit kids from our school because it wasn't as good as the private schools next to ours. He continued to say more than 60% of they freshman class comes from a prepschool.
I want to know whether there are certain prep-school ivys? I am going to apply regardless, but I want to know I have a fair shot.
