Hi everyone I have to write a research paper to pass my junior year of highschool. My thesis is on the amount of stress put on teenagers to do well in sports, academics, standard tests, as well as to be actively involved socially, and in the community in order to get into college. I was wondering if you had any thoughts or know of any resources that would be helpful. Thanx

sarah -- here's a great article that just came out online from the Christian Science Monitor:

http://www.csmonitor.com/search_content/1210/p15s02-lehl.html

It has a chart at the bottom and links to some other very good articles well worth reading, too -- not just for your research but for you and your parents and other familes currrently in the throes of, or shortly embarking full-tilt, into the college process.

Good luck with your paper!
