Bragging / DC Question

Item the First. Class rankings came out today. Erin is #8 in a class of 545, and is valedictorian for the performing arts magnet. Go Erin!

Item the Second. Erin is considering adding Georgetown to her school list, which also includes American University and George Washington (those are the DC schools; others include Reed, Wash U. (St. Louis), Tulane, UCB, UCSB, and UCSC). Does anyone have any thoughts they can share regarding the DC schools?
