Generally, private schools guarantee similar qualities - ie, small class sizes, top-notch faculty and curriculum, advanced extracurricular activities - so its best not to only go for one when there is probably another one just as good that could be an option. Its obviously okay to have a first choice, but don't make that the only option.
