@stlarenas, my son was accepted at Rhodes and Sewanee. We have visited both schools twice. My son is currently trying to decide between the two, and it's tough. If Sewanee was a target for your daughter, I highly recommend she visit Rhodes. In many ways they are very similar colleges. Both have beautiful campuses. I think they often compete for the same applicants.
@gougadawgs44 and @braves177, just think of it this way if you don't get in today, UGA's loss is Clemson's gain. Clemson is a great school. I just interviewed a kid who went there undergrad (then on to law school at Emory) and absolutely loved Clemson.
I don't think UGA is a better school academically, just harder to get into thanks to the Zell and Hope scholarship money.
@spinart, I would love to hear more about your daughter's study abroad experience. My son is a high school senior looking hard at Elon. I'm encouraging him to study abroad and would love to hear what your daughter thinks so far.
@MassDaD68: Very well said! I totally agree. Very few translatable social skills are developed at frat parties. And, if the life-of-the-party went on to law school, I would not place my "bet the farm" litigation in his hands for safekeeping!
