Northwestern University insisting on TOEFL, despite your

BESPOKE – Paris.  ALPHA PREP – US.  Jen Koller does a good job, too.

Under 600 SAT, take TOEFL or IELTS.  Hard to get a TOEFL test date.  $250.  Carouge or ICC Centre near Airport.

ACT moving to computer test.

Possible for Florimont to become a closed TOEFL centre.  IELTS can be taken in Geneva, we think.  It is also cheaper.

George Washington University – needed boys and high scores this year. Cornell rejected some high-level applicants but were generous with some others.  Family contacts count less now.  Columbia not worth applying to.

Lower grades –  Bryant, Bishops, Concordia, Elon, Tampa, Wheaton, maybe Amherst, Lynn. American University.  Florida Atlantic. Stonehill. Salve Regina. Lake Forest. Nice campus but boring! Great facilities.

Fordham is now harder.  Bucknell also accepting. Great place.  Kids from Ecol Int love it.  North Western hard to get in – Rosey kids love it.  Fantastic engineering.  Clemson, South Carolina v accepting. North Eastern – harder.   Furman – lots of Christians.
