Told my child that it was impossible to get in to the University of Michigan. She applied and was accepted. Perhaps she could never get in!
Despite what others say, her candidness is extremely refreshing.
She gives interesting advice. Not the most promising and always about numbers instead of people. She will, however, advocate for students she likes.
She is very helpful. Doesn't matter about advice, CCRC is great because of the crew of helpful people.
She told me I couldn't get into Northwestern, and I did. I graduated in '99 from NU. Apply wherever you want.
PLEASE do not listen to this woman. Follow your dreams and really take time to decide on a school. She only cares about where everyone goes... be unique.
