As my S prepares for graduation and Pomona the focus shifts to my D. She definetly wants to stay in the southwest. She doesn't want to take SATII's. Is that a mistake? She is looking at Pitzer, University of Redlands, Willamette, Puget Sound, Trinity University, Southwestern for sure. She will need merit or finaid with 2 in college. Stats so far 3.5 unweighted, 4AP's by graduation, low ACT score 1st try 26,will be taking it again and SAT 1 in June. She has lots of leadership, started a new group for her highscool, national honor society ,student council, church camp leader, lifeguard, teaches water aerobics, varsity track and crosscountry, will be team captain next year so that dept is covered. Am concerned with scores, HOPE they will go up. If they don't go up much are these schools possible? She is a bright kid, well liked by her teachers, active in her church and works hard. Are there other schools to look at. She is in a very challenging HS so is used to working hard. Any advice or ideas on schools to look into would be helpful. Thanks, 1 down ,one to go

OF course it's not a mistake. A few other schools she might consider: Occidental, the University of San Diego (Catholic but not overwhelmingly so and one of the most stunning campuses around), Austin College in Texas, Southern Methodist U in Texas,
Santa Clara U near San Francisco, Pepperdine and Chapman U in Calif. If she's going to look at Willamette and Puget Sound she might also consider Lewis & Clark. And, of course, there's also Scripps in the Claremont colleges.
