Dream College for a Student Often Different From That Parents

  1. Stanford University
  2. Harvard College
  3. Columbia University
  4. New York University
  5. Princeton University
  6. University of California – Los Angeles
  7. Massachusetts Institute of Technology
  8. Yale University
  9. University of Michigan – Ann Arbor
  10. University of California – Berkeley
