    I'm a newbie, didn't realize that, but you are correct. I was doing the 4 year total.

    @ProudMom17, don't stress it too hard, since it is after all the (somewhat misleading) way colleges themselves advertise their awards.

    Thanks for sharing the message about passion. I think this is a key factor for student success.

    My S is headed to Kalamazoo College in less than two weeks!

    If you are also a K parent and looking for more content about Kalamazoo College, I've started a group on Facebook for confirmed parents whose students are attending K. There we can share resources and support. Ask about good places for brunch, clarification on information from the school, sharing about helpful programs on and off campus, etc.

    The group is closed so we can share comments without having our students have access and get embarrassed (like that never happens).

    Here's the link for the Facebook Group, just add the site name with the dot com where the asterisks are. I left it out in case CC doesn't allow full links to outside groups. Then copy and paste into your search box in your browser:

    @JBekkaZ Congrats. We didn't have too many family struggles but he did struggle for parts of his high school as many teens do and fitting into the U.S. culture but he never gave up and remained focused. I actually came to respect my kid in the process because he never gave up, and then good things started happening, which eventually saw him get into Stanford REA and a great gap year study abroad scholarship program. Looking back, I am glad he struggled in high school so that in college when he goes through tough times, he can look back and it will help him not give up in the face of adversities.

    We are so glad and relieved that we are done with his high school experience though.
