Frankly....gut feeling. We have schools from diverse regions on our CAF. We were told to have back up schools or some very high on CAF. But we chose the schools which would be better suited to our son's personality. I would not choose the same schools for DS2. While filling the CAF, we each chose(me, DH, DS) our top 3 schools. Our opinions, for the top 2 coincided so that was good. The rest of 3 spots took loads of discussion. The 6th spot went to the local comp. Till now I and dh argue about the 3rd choice
. Hope our dh gets in one of the top two choices or I and dh will fight till he is passes out of High School!!!
