My midwest kid has done 1 OV's this month at mid-D3 school at east coast LAC and coming up on a second OV at a out of state research institute. Coaches want visits to be done during weekdays so kid can go to class with team members, eat with the team, practice with the team, etc. Problem is kid is missing about 3 days of classroom work (2 days of OV plus a travel day whether air or driving) for each visit and our sport is in season now in the fall, so practices and games/matches are being missed, too. There are two other colleges my kid would like to visit, but can't continue to miss all the classroom work in mostly AP classes. Our high school is counting these visits as "excused" absences, but trying to make up the past-due work and keep up with current assignments is crushing. Grateful for the opportunity for an OV of course, just wish we could fit it all in. Anyone else?
We are also tapped out paying airfare/transportation costs (like taking Lyft to/from the airport because coaches can't get to the airport) but that's a whole 'nother discussion. The next OV we are attending I am making the 10 hour drive myself and staying at an AirBNB. Hopefully kid can get missed homework done during the drive.
