    First of all, congratulations to you both on your acceptance to Mercersburg!

    My daughter goes there and is a junior. It has been a wonderful experience for her; everything from two trips (Costa Rica and India), lots of AP courses, great teachers, and the ability to try new things. Diverse student body, nice dorms, and yes, it is in the middle of nowhere. I think its location adds to the cohesiveness of the kids there. What else are you going to do but hang with friends on campus?
    Do a search on this forum and put in either my user name or simply "zp". I've posted extensively about Mercersburg. Or you can always pm me.

    Very rich kids who dress to impress. Some faculty there because families rich donors. Some teachers outstanding such as the French and Dance teachers. Easy for kids to "ditch" meals. In the middle of no where and takes hours to get there from any airport. Reportedly high availability of drugs.

    To each his own. Mercersburg has been the best experience imaginable for my daughter. Princess'Dad's daughter went there and had a bad experience. Neither is right or wrong. It is all about fit.

    Choose wisely.
