listen to Scott Wright that is a great Idea, but the thing is with my sister who is off to college the guidance counselors acted like they didnt care, they didnt say congratulations or anything, they acted like they really didnt care. I suggest that he first decides if he wants to be close to home or venture off to a college far away.

The majority of people on this board arent to college yet. In fact, the majority of people in this thread giving him college advice are his age or possibly younger.
...and they're saying things like "its a good wrestling school," which is far from sound advice. This is a decision that your brother and your parents should make, NOT US.

we were asking for advice. we wanted to know what other people would know about the school.

I would say Duke it has a real good math program depending on what he wants to do in Math. Duke is a real nice campus and really just a nice school in general.

Off of the list, Stanford or Duke are the best schools.

PSHH. You little girl. It is not super cold, I we have kids wearing shorts in 30 degree weather here. 20 is when we start to get a little more on.

I said Vandy, I hear its a good college. And then BC,NW and Stanford would also be good choices

lol there are tons of websites with rankings of various schools for particular undergraduate programs... of that list tho... it should be pretty obvious that Stanford is one of the top schools in the nation. If he can make it in there, and likes the campus/atmostphere/etc, that's the place to go. Vanderbilt, Duke, Wake Forest, and Northwestern are also great schools.

If all he cares about is academics then he should go to Stanford because its the most prestigious college on that list. Not that that really means anything in the long run but he will get a better job coming out of college.

His school might not the the weighted GPA thing. There are other ways to rank students.

As for where you brother should go, I'd put a lot of faith in the schools conselors, especially if the school is as good as you say. Vandy is a really nice school, as is Stanford, although if he is seriously considering the west coast he should read up on UC Berkeley, which is one of the top chemistry schools there is (also was the top ranked public school in the nation a few years back).

Truth be told, I'd but a lot of stock into which school he feels most comfortable with. He will likely get into a good school, and a degree from one is practically as good as another. Let him go to one he is excited about.

I know about 10 kids who are at Vanderbilt who graduated from my school and they are all really weird for some reason everyone of them. I know its a great school i just have a weird perception of Vandy because of that.

dude, it just depends on what's important to him...academics, climate, atmosphere, looseness/hotness of women. kinda hard question to answer considering we don't know a damn thing about your bro except that he's smarter than us morons.

but, the universal criteria for college picking...just go to the place where you can pound the most crotch.
