The Princeton Review has published its annual College Hopes and Worries Survey, which questions prospective students and their parents about their anxieties and presumptions involving college admissions and the college application process.
Included in this survey are the top 10 colleges and universities parents wish to see their kids attend. So if you’ve been wondering where you’re parents secretly (or openly) wish you would go to school, here you go:
The top 10 college and universities your parents wish you would just go to already (as if it’s that easy):
1. Harvard University
2. Stanford University
3. Princeton University
4. Massachusetts Institute of Technology
5. Yale University
6. Duke University
7. Brown University
8. New York University
9. University of Notre Dame
10. Northwestern University
Yes, these are unarguably superb schools, but not every college-bound student can get into them or even wants to attend. Even if your parents think these schools are the bee’s knees, there are so many wonderful schools out there.
What schools would make your top 10?
