Oh yes they will.
From the people I know who've needed the Vaad's help, the Vaad did not try much for the schools they wanted, and tried very hard to convince them to go to schools the Vaad could easily get them into, that they could've gotten into without the Vaad's help.

Personally, I don't think parents should apply to a school they don't want to apply to, just so they can get the Vaad's help if they don't get into the schools they do want. I used to be a trooper and thought you needed to play by the rules, but I've seen it played out and there was no point.

Last year, Bais Yaakov, Oros, Aderes, Main, and Bais Kaila interviewed everyone.
Bais Shaindel target interviewed.
I don't know about other schools. I know these because Mrs Epstein (Bais Faiga) told me so.
That was last year.

Oros. Bh we're very happy.
But my daughter is a very high achievers. The academics are challenging and they're given a lot of school and independent work.

Interesting I applied to 4/5 of those schools.

I know someone last year who applied to maon and aderes and didn't get interview in either.

I doubt meon interviews those who write it's a 4th choice for them. That's what I did.

I know the owner of tehilas. He wants a school for his daughter who is now in 7th grade. He wants a school like bais shaindel originally was. A lakewood girl with a chassidesh background. It will probably attract girls for bnos hadassah, BRR, bnos melech, some bais tovah etc.

Nicest people and I'm sure the school will be successful.

Tehillas I heard catering to Yeshivish/Heimish, and learningwise to reg girls (not specifically high acedemic) . Meiros - mainstream crowd (bais yaakov/aderes/oros) and def leaning to high acedemics

My dd had an interview in Bais Kaila. It was very relaxed and easy, she was pleasantly surprised. She asked which subjects she likes, what she's doing in the summer, hobbies, does she have friends who are applying to BK. Just friendly types of questions.

When my DD was in 8th grade and had her interview at BK, she came out and told me "this is where I'm going". (and she did). The interview atmosphere is totally what you get in the school, too. They are not out to intimidate you. It's warm and friendly.

My daughter said that also. Her good friends are all upset at her because none of them applied there.

In the beginning, I wasn't even thinking of applying there. It slowly became my first choice but not my daughters. She is an overachiever and wanted oros.

The reason I like it is because it's middle class. They are not trying to be the best at anything. It's just a school for girls.

I'm very not elitest. We live an out of the box lifestyle. We don't fit into neat boxes etc. So middle class works best for me.

My daughter will do well in any school. That's her type so I don't really care which school as long as she is happy.
