At least it's not too far away!

I have kids from Smith, Catholic, and UC Davis as post-bac fellows right now. They're all great.
Stay tuned. I believe getting into these elite schools is a bit of a crapshoot. So in spite of SAT>1500 and GPA>4.0 it's not a done deal. She may still got to Pitt after all.

I went to that snooty elite school just to your North and TBH I would have come out happier if I had gone to a less intense place undergrad. But we all have to learn these lessons for ourselves.
