Unless with DC in both schools, will be hard to compare.

There's a 2011 thread which discussed this

I was considering these 2 for girl too. However she preferred njc than rv, so decided to put njc at 1st choice. So she can't blame anyone in the next 6 years as she made the choice if she is able to get into njc. I like the boarding in this school which I believe is a gd way to train the kid to be independent & most of them will enjoy.

U may refer to njc website about boarding programme. Yesterday I went to RV open house, the school give me very good impression& facilities are new. I quite like it but my girl still insist to put Njc as 1st choice. Told her about an hour journey fr home to njc & think that is ok & for her. So I let her be. Btw, she got 259+3, NJC doesn't count the 3, last year cop 259, she might not have good chance. Just trying her luck.
