    Valedictorian went to Harvard. Everyone who was ranked in the top 50 seemed to go to one of HYPSM, Chicago, Columbia, Penn, or Berkeley (which is around a hour away from our school).

    My class valedictorian, who was a Presidential Scholar, chose Harvard real early on last year. My school sent students to all Ivies (except Brown), UChicago, UC Berkeley, UCLA, etc.

    My daughter (valedictorian) will be attending Cornell. But we recently attended a dinner for the top kids at each school in the state and many of them will be attending the University of Delaware. I imagine cost has a lot to do with that.

    Back in the 80s, I was the val of my small town HS and I went to Rutgers because I got a full ride.
