How to get your kid into Harvard, Yale or Princeton.
Get them into one of these high schools. This is the Worth Magazine list of top 100 feeder schools to the Ivy League. Interestingly enough, a school I had a chance of getting into — Thomas Jefferson HS for Science and Technology — was number 71 on the list. It was a public high school, but you need to pass an entrance test. I think I purposely flunked it, I don't remember exactly. I just remember being concerned that I wouldn't be able to be with my friends.
