    Q: Do you feel you were unfairly denied schools for any reason?
    A: No. She received three offers (1 from Northside, 1 from Lincoln Park IB, and 1 from Lincoln Park Double Honors). These were her first choices in each category, so we have no issues or concerns at all.

    Q: What do you think could be improved for next year?
    A: It was hard to find some important information on the site, even under the FAQs. For instance, the dates/times/locations of the selective enrollment exams should be prominently displayed; you shouldn’t have to search within the FAQs.
