I find myself rooting for a specific school for my daughter.</p>
<p>The others she likes are great schools, so why do I want her to attend MY choice?
<p>I guess it's a weak form of projection? ;)</p>
<p>That aside, I am not a parent, but as a student who experienced - and bent to - parental pressure to attend a particular school, I do not think it is wise to continue pushing a certain option, lest your daughter end up matriculating at an institution she is not altogether thrilled with out of a fear of displeasing you. Granted, she can adapt, but I do not think there is any parent who wants to force-feed their child the bitter pill of regret.</p>
