Thanks, Canada-Chalk up one more refugee from Canada; this Canadian teen's heading to Princeton rather than Ontario colleges, for she spend her senior year in Italy doing Alzheimer's research with a major lab. She finished up via correspondence courses, but the lack of mid-term grades was outside of the box for Ontario's admission system, so no one their could accept her. Harvard and Princeton, more used to home-schoolers' unorthodox records, were happy to admit her. And the Canadian big-wigs wonder why the smart Canadians keep heading south of the border? There are probably some American schools that would suffer from similar recto-cranial inversion, but the big-government persona of Canada might make them more rules-oriented, and if the kid doesn't have her midterms, she can't get in.
