Dartmouth has a collegiate figure skating team...

But if she goes east, I bet she'll pick Princeton because no Hughes went there.

Having worked in Lawrenceville, NJ at one time, the Princeton area is lovely, and she's close to many rinks (including at Princeton) and a stone's throw from both Philly and NYC. Will be interesting to see what she chooses.

I bet she chooses to stay on the West Coast and goes with Stanford.

:cheer2::cheer2: Wow, congratulations to Rachael! I figured she'd get in pretty much everywhere she applied!!! :cheer2::cheer2:

Decisions, decisions! Might come down to which schools are more flexible to accommodate her future skating plans, as well as proximity to a good coach and facilities.

congratulations Rachael! my bet is also on stanford, that's the school she loves most. but from career path perspective, if her interest is in biochemical, she should go with johns hopkins.

IIRC, there's another sr. skater at Princeton - Katrina Hacker, I think. (Though she wasn't as successful as Rachael.)

I agree. My cousin graduated from Johns Hopkins with a biomedical engineering major and they have a great program.

Baltimore is a dump though. Last year he was robbed at knifepoint right outside his apartment, and he isn't a stupid guy who stays out late. :scream: He's okay, what was hilarious about it is that he reacted to the incident with an engineering mindset. "Hmm, what to do now? Call credit card companies, call DMV..." :lol:

At Stanford she'd be a lot safer. My sister never mentioned any times where she felt unsafe there.

No offense to anyone, but I kinda hope she doesn't pick JH. Everyone I know who went there was really unhappy. Such a large percentage of the student population is premed which makes for a cutthroat atmosphere.

Rachael is def not fat, she's tiny, she just needs better costumes that show she is tiny, as opposed to ones that make her look oddly shaped.

Congrats on all the schools! Wow :eek:! I think she'll pick Stanford or Princeton though! I'd really like to see a video of the average day for Rachael Flatt, it must be jam-packed!

Baltimore is a dump though. Baltimore has its problems, but the area around the Hopkins undergrad campus is pretty safe. I don't know how far your cousin was from campus, but it's true that if you go a bit further south toward downtown, there are some sketchy areas in there. You just have to be careful like you would in any major city. Stanford is in a (very nice) suburb, has a larger campus, and pretty much all students live on campus, so there is less of a crime risk there, but in this day and age, you need to be careful and pay attention to your surroundings wherever you are.
