need help finding school for my daughter
My daughter just did a 180 and decided not to go to university in Europe as she had planned her whole life. We are looking for an urban school, tuition not more that 33000, room and board no included, not in the south, it has to be a public university as we live in DC and get tuition assistance from the government, 10 000 per year to a public college. It can not be a commuter school nor a party school. She is interested in International relations, political science. Her ACT has been cancelled 3 times now so she is not planning to take it. She did poorly in 9th grade, was diagnosed with ADD, depression and anxiety at end of 9th grade and started medication in the summer. Her grades in 10th and 11 are great. She took 2 APs last year and are taking 3 her senior year. One school she has decided on is Penn state, we also looked at University of Illinois at Chicago but decided that it was too much of a commuter school. Michigan is way to expensive. if you have any ideas that would be greatly appreciated. Price is very important.31 replies
