Help! Narrowing down visit list (Stanfford, Dartmouth, Williams, etc.)?

Okay so in November I am able to visit 5 schools. I have 8 schools on my "I'm interested" list. These schools are.... -Stanford -Pomona -Claremont McKenna -Pitzer -Williams -Lawrence University -Dartmouth -UC Boulder I am visiting the Claremont consortium for sure (which will allow me to see Pomona, Claremont, and Pitzer in one day.) If I do that I can turn my list of 5 schools to visit into 7. But even then, I still can't visit one of these schools Stanford- I really want to visit, but don't NEED to, although it is an entrepreneurial school, and I'm a future Entrepeneur. Williams- Love the idea of the Oxford style tutorials. I love the fact that they are so content with their school. I don't NEED to visit this school. Lawrence- I have already had an interview and a couple talks and it is an INCREDIBLE school, low selectivity but the educational quality matches that of the top 10 schools. This school is a must visit. Dartmouth- I feel like the quintessential Dartmouth student: Athletic (play soccer, kicker for the football team, and a tennis player,) sociable (always with friends, don't let my studies get in the way too much,) and involved (play all those 3 sports, in student government, excellent grades, Have a job, near 100 hours of community service, and play 4 instruments.) I don't NEED to visit this school. UC Boulder- Im sure this is a good school, but I'd rather leave this one out and visit the other 7. I'm kind of forced to visit this school. Maybe I could get out of it, should I try? Which school should I not visit? (out of Stanford, Williams, Dartmouth, and maybe possibly Boulder.) Thanks in advance---- all responses are greatly appreciated!

You didn't mention where you are from, though it sounds as though you are on the west coast. For now, unless you really think you might want to apply Early Decision, I would skip visiting the schools with very low acceptance rates that are also very far away from where you live. Even highly qualified students get... More

I might suggest the opposite route: lose the Clairemont consortium entirely and visit all of the other five, including Boulder because you should throw a bone to the parents.

Start over! Decide where you want to live and work. Choose schools that supply employees to the area. Example - I want to live in Milwaukee. Visit Marquette, U of W - Milwaukee, Why? As a Freshman you will meet students that are three years ahead of you. As a Senior you will have met students that are three years... More

First, you need to be more realistic. According to previous posting, your GPA is ~3.8, and your ACT score is around 27. You have less than 10% chance of being accepted to any elite schools. Consider the sub-ivies (assuming your giant ego can accept the shock): Colgate U U of Rochester Sewanee—University of the South
