That's changed now. PD, Latin, and CD all use the same test which is now administered by a psychologist. The child takes the test once, and the results are sent to whichever schools the parent chooses. Then the children have individual visits at each school as they always have. It's actually a nice streamlining of that part of the admissions process.

I'm glad that the independent schools use the same test now. My daughter is an excellent student and did very well at Providence Day. I'm sure she would have done fine academically at Country Day. The rejection letter from Country Day stung a bit at the time..but everything turned out fine.

IMHO you were MUCH better off at Providence. I thought Country Day liked themselves a little too much.
