Congrats to Linymom and son!
DS has been accepted to Pitt and Alabama (got the scholarship letter yesterday from Bama). DS and husband will be visiting Alabama in two weeks, fingers crossed they like it. I mailed 8 HS transcripts yesterday, I was surprised to have 2 acceptances before transcripts where sent - test scores are better then grades. He is another NMSF with not great rank.
DS has no favorite school, so I feel like we are missing "the perfect school". I should be happy he is leaving his options open. He still has to finish the UMCP application, but has submitted 6 others. One more definite application for after Nov.1 and two maybes and then it's on to scholarship and honors college apps. UMBC came off the list after a visit last fall and has vaulted to the top again after a rep visited his AP econ class and sold him on a public policy honors program. We re-visited and he wanted to know who planted the 100's of trees since his last visit.
