Choosing between schools sight unseen
Like so many class of 2020 families, all of our admitted students were cancelled. Unfortunately, we were relying on those to choose from an array of schools. Virtual sessions thus far have not been helpful. Our finalists are Miami (OH), Denison, Denver, UVM and Charleston. Coming from an urban East Coast area and large public high school. Fortunate to have money from all. Student ambivalent about midwest/flat lands. Parents interested in OH schools. Anyone have feedback on vibes, programs, academic support at any of these options?5 replies
