This whole discussion is reinforcing the happiness I felt when my daughter chose not to rush in Texas.
Yes, this.

And if one of my friends looked down on me because of where my (at present, imaginery) daughter was accepted to school or which sorority she joined, I'd tell that "friend" to go pound sand. No one needs people like that in their life.
