Because apparently that's the expectation and desire in my household. They want me to head back to NJ after I graduate, yet they let me go to a different part of the country...they've even gone so far as to say they wouldn't have let me go OOS if they knew I wouldn't head back to Jersey.
More venting later, but I want some parents' perspective on this: if you let your kid go to school OOS, did you expect them to return to the state after graduation? Why or why not? If they did come home, was it a desire (or necessity) on their part or an obligation from your end?
