My guidance counselor recently told me no one from my high school's ever gone to an Ivy, MIT, Stanford, Caltech, etc. Each year, however, it seems like there are definitely qualified kids.
Our high school was built around 2004. For the last 3 years, the top 10 students in the school have all been non-URMs [non-underrepresented minorities] and non-legacies. Could this be the reason, or is the problem with the school itself?
