    I don't know how representative my impressions are, but things seem different here in middle America. In my college admission days there really wasn't not a lot of enthusiasm to attend the Ivy League schools back east. I can recall a small handful, but even the most of the higher achievers ended up in the State U's. Too far away and maybe some loss of quality of environment to move. People I know now with sons or daughters seem pretty much the same way.

    I grew up on the East coast with a brief respite in the Midwest. Everyone I knew that was college bound applied to private colleges. In retrospect, I would have done much much better to go to a state university, save the tuition for a house downpayment, and teach high school.

    Oh well.
