We are planning a college tour in the summer through Connecticut, New York,Vermont, Pennsylvania, Washington, Michigan, Maine and Massachusetts and wanted to get adice from the road warriors who have done this before? Most of the colleges we are looking at are somewhat selective to very selective. SATs from mid 650's to 740's. There are more high school children graduating in 2009 than ever in the history of the US so it is very difficult to get in, even with good grades and great scores.
We are looking for advice on where to stay and what restaurants to go to? Any colleges that aren't worth a second look, etc. mostly from a parents viewpoint. We are also open to suggestions to colleges outside this region too. We are particularly interested in colleges that place an emphasize careers and jobs. We would love to hear from you to get a real insiders view.
