Hey everyone, I wasn't sure whether to post this here or in setting development but I'm here either way to ask for your help. My story, Boss's Daughter, has hit another crunch in the research world. I've halted writing at the moment because of this block and I can't get my mind off it, mostly because it's annoying me...a lot. I understand American's go to college (University for us British people) when their 18 or 19, depending on when they graduate high school. I've got that bit down to a fine T. However, with my character, I'm torn between a couple of the colleges and I wanted everyone's views on which one would be better for the story and for her. My gut is telling me Harvard though I think that's due to the fact that's the only college I know about...apart from Yale. So I've done a bit of research and I've made a list. My character (I'll remind you about her) is the secret heiress to her family's business in New York City. She'll take over the business when she's 21 and when she's 19, she'll start formally training to take over. In the meantime, she's going to college to get a business degree. 1. Columbia, NY. What I liked about this college, after finding it, was that it did a business degree and was also in New York City which meant the character to could have her own home near to the college. 2. NYU Stern. I don't know much about this college apart from it having a business degree, plus it's in NYC as well. 3. Yale, CT. It's kinda near to NYC....if you count about an hour near. It's has the business degree and is famous with that old world, traditional sense of education and life. 4. Harvard, MA. One of my favourites! I don't know what drew me to this college since it's well known for it's law school but thankfully they do a business school as well. It's four hours away from NYC...and I don't know, it just screams 'pick me!' But I would like to know everyone else's views, since I have to think of the story and the character. The character herself would probably pick the one near home but would also want one that's well away from home as well. Anyway, please let me know what you all think. Thanks, Anne-Marie.
