OHIO Road Trip with Junior daughter - comments or ON the Route add-on's welcomed
Flying into DC 10/21 to visit OHIO schools (junior daughter wants snow- whatever!). Denison, Ohio Wesleyan, Wooster, Oberline, Kenyon, and Wittenberg. Popping over the Ohio State just to go see a mega 70k student school too. Routing up to Rock and Roll Hall of fame on the weekend so then hitting Allegheny in PA on our way down to DC to visit George Mason, do a White House tour (all arranged) and fly out of DC 11/3. We have Lynchburg College and William and Mary in our sites but will be in DC area this summer so will visit those then.
Daughter is Junior with 3.6 GPA, mid SAT's (to be determined but based on her PSAT and practice tests), nice EC, Third Culture Kid (born in Guatemala, lived in US, Japan and in Europe now at an American DOD high school), with interesting life story, and heartfelt solid recommendations. Wants "something with not to much math and science" as her college studies. All around great applicant to any LAC.
Daughter reviewed each tour times schedule, made a chart and map to figured out the times we can visit with enough wandering around time to be able to do more than buzz in and out for the tour and info and interviews. FYI -This should be an activity for every college bound Junior - it took 2+ hours to gather and chart. Good for her!
Open to any other schools that are on the route ... as much as we had already toyed with a run to Birmingham Southern and to Center College in Kentucky and on and on.... I really want to keep the route tight and focused with plenty of coffee shop stops to reflect and enjoy the college towns. As we all know, there are 2,864 colleges we could potentially visit....!
PS - this trip was planned for last spring break but last minute daughter announced that she wasn't ready to start looking. Good for her - great for me as I didn't think so either. Now she is ready and motivated.
