my cousin is/was thinkingh of going to Phillips Academy in Andover. She would need to get a scholarship to afford it and would commute instead of live there, but it got me thinking... cuz i think that George Bush went there. And i was thinking how colleges and prep schools love to tell visiters and campus tourists about all the famous people who went to school there, but i wonder, does Phillips gladly brag about George Bush having gone there, or do they not mention it? Cuz you know, for the money people pay for that place... a high school no less, you want to be sure your kid's gonna get a good education. Being all "Bush went here" could make potential students think "that idiot went HERE?" but then again, that idiot is president.
so... i wonder if Bush is a selling point or a deterant.

deterant.
just becasue someone who went there became president is no selling point. our president has been the benificiary of so much nepotism it staggers the mind to think about it. he was the son of the head of the CIA, he could have gotten in anywhere.
if anything it would highlight the school as a neocon training ground where you will be indoctrinated into a school of thought that twists ones world view until one can beleive that the world and all its denizens are your responsibility.
not that that is the case.
i am sure it is a good school; especialy if they don't brag that GW went there.
