I don't see a thread, yet, for 2025 so I thought I'd start one. (Apologies to the moderators if I missed it.)

    I'm happy to start. My oldest child will be starting senior year in the fall at an urban public high school. They've visited the campus a few times over the last year, and Yale is first on a list of ~10 schools that they will be applying to. I would categorize four of those schools as reaches. The remaining six are a mix of reaches/targets, targets, and safeties. These schools were selected based on the reputation of a particular field of study, so there's a real mix of schools (large, small, urban, suburban, rural, private, public, etc.).

    Significant financial aid would be required, and we've found the online net price calculators to be quite helpful. In fact, we eliminated a few schools earlier on based on estimated aid.

    At this stage in the process, child has completed drafts of their Common App essay, as well as drafts of a couple of other school-specific essays and has had various people look them over. I expect much of the summer will be spent on essay writing and tweaking.

    Yale prior to this year wasn't even a possibility for me. I have a really great GPA, and am a fairly strong essay writer; my only downfall is my test score. I will only have the opportunity to take the ACT once (NYC is being very confusing with when/if they can administer tests). I guess my main question is- will my application be worth it?

    @pubschoolparent what is the field of study on which you chose Yale? You mentioned all of your 10 schools were chosen based on field of study.
