Two college visits in One Day?
I am planning to take DS to visit colleges over Veteran’s Day. We would ideally like to visit 4 schools in 2 days. I have narrowed it down to 6 schools to choose from. We would visit 4 this time and 2 more on another trip. The schools we have narrowed it down are: Haverford, Ursinus, Skidmore, Williams, Tufts, Bates. We live in upstate NY. I have debated flying into Boston to visit Tufts and Bates and then flying to Philadelphia from Logan to visit the two in PA. The other option is to drive to Albany, takethe train to Penn Station and then Philadelphia to visit Ursinus & Haverford, and then back to Albany for visits to Williams and Skidmore. It will be just me and DS, and my husband thinks I’m crazy to try to fit so much in on one trip. Is he right? Should I just plan to visit 2 in one location at a time? I’d love to have time to visit UPenn, but I’m honestly trying to be realistic about the schools he may end up at and where a visit will matter the most. I’m just worried that we are running out of time to visit schools. Shouldn’t we plan to visit the schools he is applying to before Admissions start to review applications?108 replies
