Did your kid "fall in love" with a school?
D has applied to 8 schools and gotten into 4 so far. I helped her whittle down her list so that it focused on schools that met her criteria for size, distance from home, had her intended major, that she had some chance of getting into and that were reasonably affordable after aid.
So now she says that all the tour guides talk about how they fell in love with the school and knew it was right for them. She keeps saying she doesn't feel that way about any of them. I do know there are a lot of intangibles that go what makes a school "right" for you, but I think maybe the reality is hitting that eventually she will have to make a decision and then make the transition to college.
She now wants to start looking for more colleges to apply to. I told her to go ahead and find a few more. Has this happened to your kids? How would you respond?
