Do I need to apply to all five of the independents in Brooklyn - Berkeley Carroll, Brooklyn Friends, Poly Prep, Packer and Saint Ann's? They feel so different in philosophy, but I feel like I have to given the application frenzy.

Not sure where you live but if you're in the Heights, you may want to narrow the list to BFS, P and SA. BC is a toss up. PP is a bit far. There's something special about walking your DC to school. GL!

If you want more options to ensure a good fit, then broaden your search to include some of the schools downtown like C&C, LREI and VCS.

With the limited options available in Brooklyn, competition is VERY intense. Lots of great kids but not enough spots - what can you do? Many are lucky to even get in at one of them, not to mention two or three. Might as well apply to the whole group and then decide based on where your DC gets in.
