We need to submit list by Friday, but it's hard when we haven't been able to tour. Stuy and Brooklyn Tech are our 1 and 2. Commute would be simple to either. I think both DD and I are put off by the perception that Stuy is high pressure/cut throat and she'll be up all night doing homework, but is that true? I also worry it will be impossible to anything other than a middle of the pack kid (if that) and college admissions out of Stuy will be a killer. But is that true? Any insights appreciated.
