if you want to get into harvard, yale or princeton:
you dont need to finish valedictorian at these schools, more likely, you just need to GRADUATE and you're almost a lock at a top school.
and yes, exeter and andover make the list.

wow they don't even have Stuyvesant(sp?). Choat is good as well.

stuyvesant is a good school but not great. although if you graduate #1 from stuy, you can go anywhere...what if you finish #700? could you get into stanford?
collegiate actually sent a kid who finished dead-last to stanford one banner year. also, 35% of the graduating class to HYPSM is pretty damn good.

An enormous reason that kids with bad grades go to amazing schools after graduating from those top high schools is NOT because of the reputation of the high school but because of how BUTT-LOADED the kids are who go to them. Get it? Have money, get in.

Went to the Exeter site- now, I know it's a great school, but- THEY HAVE VIDEOS PROMOTING HOW GREAT THEIR TABLES ARE!! What is up with that? I have a round table in my kitchen, I eat at it, could I also start a prestigious HS from it? Nobody cares about what kind of tables you have, OK!

nah kiddies stuyvesant sends more kids to harvard, yale, princeton than that silly top 20 list with the exception of Andover and Exeter who send more kids to hyp. the difference is because stuyvesant is a public school with 3000 students, the PERCENTAGE of students who go to hyp ends up being a lousy 4% or so compared to andover's 30% or whatever it is. but 4% of stuy's graudating class is 30 kids--a greater number than the entire graduating class at some of the listed private schools. also, stuy kids are poor and have to work to get into their ivy league schools, in stark contrast to those attending andover, exeter, or the NYC private schools (there are a few exceptions I realize).
