I am approaching my senior year and preparing to apply for college and I can already sense my mother's creeping hostility towards out of state and small schools. She wants me to go to Florida State University with my brother but Tallahassee is my least favorite place on earth. She told me that I might as well cross the out of state schools off my list and is forcing me to apply to UCF and FSU. The only schools she approves of on my list are UF and FAU. There is no communicating with her...How can I open her mind and find a more common ground with her?
