Comment: I told her not to stress the whole college stuff. She can attend Boston College Evening division at night and is guaranteed to be a graduate of a top 30 school. She is pretty much a lock at Clemson, Univ of Arizona, Univ of Alabama which she would be happy attending as well. But hey, Dartmouth has a great gluten free program, as she has Celiac Disease
