HELP! Our daughter is not a great student...poor PSATs...her grades are decent...but she's never been academic (learning issues as a child, etc.)...she is very social, into art and interior design, very preppy and fun...what would be a good choice for her???? any help would be appreciated!

    This is kind of a confusing post. Is your daughter interested in women's colleges or are you just looking for general recommendations? When you say her grades are "decent" what exactly does that mean in terms of GPA? Same question with "poor PSATs", what does that mean exactly? Does she have any preferences (geographic area, size, type (university vs. LAC)) or particular things she's looking for? If she has learning issues, is it important to find a school with a lot of support (disability services, tutoring, health services) ?

    I'm sure people would be happy to help, but we'll need more info if we're going to make a good recommendation.
