Entrance into college these days can be a crap shoot even for exc students. I have 2 daughters who never got a B in their life ( over 5.0 weighted)) , 32 ACT, 1500 SAT (760 M, 740 V), pres and vp of student council, went to States in 2 different sports, capt of all their sports teams-- didnt get into 1 Ivy. They were beautiful white rich girls from a suburban private school. You need to have a struggle, be from a particular group they are seeking, or be extremely unique these days to get into the top schools.

I have several family members that went to MIT, Harvard, Columbia, a brother that is a professor at MIT but times have changed. State schools like UF are like getting into an IVY of yesteryear.
you know the rules! pics of beautiful rich white girls!
