Do Top-Tier Admission Officers Prefer Private or Public School Students?
Is it true that private schools help get more students into top-tier colleges because they have insider connections with admissions offices? Do public school counselors have these connections as well? How much does the type of school factor into college admissions (i.e. will the college have higher expectations for a private school student? Will they prefer a private school student over a public school one, or shy away from admitting too many "preppies"?)
