Bowdoin College Admissions Statistics 2014 Clinic
What almost killed me about Stuy** was the realization during senior year that so much of it is really geared towards getting students into universities. There are aspects of this that are mutually beneficial for both the school and the students, and aspects of this that are really only good for the school (and not the individuals involved, including the teachers). On the good side, there's a lot of institutional support for getting students involved in research - especially for math, where there's a very active push to get calculus out of the way so you can focus on more interesting problems. I really loved this part of Stuy. On the not so good side, I would argue that it's difficult to find teachers who can serve as good mentors. As I understand it, all teachers have to teach 5 periods - meaning that most teachers have to assess 170 students a day. The process involved for the "counselor's recommendation" for college applications is similarly stressful for both students and teachers and has the potential to be very impersonal. Almost as if to play with our heads, the college office annually publishes a list of college admissions statistics based on last year's class that includes the highest GPA rejected and the lowest GPA accepted.
