Seven hours. That's how much sleep David Duwal shoots for each night. "I try to get to bed as early as I can," Duwal said.Seven hours of sleep leaves only 17 hours over the rest of the day for everything else, which hardly seems to be enough time for Duwal's lengthy to-do list.Duwal, a 6-foot-4 forward for the Leyden boys basketball team who recently had one of his best games of the season when he scored 17 points in an overtime win over Morton, quite easily could be one of the busiest, and most driven teens in the Northwest suburbs.He's a three-sport athlete, one of the top students in his class, he plays in the band, is a member of the science club, volunteers with his church, has a job -- the list goes on and on.It's no wonder Duwal is quite literally between Harvard and Yale right now.

The Boston area has a well-known reputation for its prestigious universities. Harvard. MIT. The list goes on. But there are a few local colleges that arguably don’t get the recognition they deserve. CollegeVine, a Cambridge-based college guidance company, recently examined the “most underrated” colleges in the United States, by comparing their cost of attendance and generosity of financial aid with “qualitative data” on students’ career outcomes. Unlike traditional college rankings, CollegeVine co-founder Vinay Bhaskara said they primarily focused on financial outcomes, like students’ starting salary and return on investment one and five years after graduating, as well as “qualitative outcomes like job placements.” And in their final list released Monday morning, two schools in the Boston area — or, to be more specific, two schools in Wellesley — just made the top 10. Both Babson College and Wellesley … [Read more...] about The most underrated colleges in the country? These local schools made the list.
