Parents to twins in class of 2020
As a mom to twin girls graduating in 2020 I would love to connect with other parents in the same boat (parents to graduating twins). I welcome you to share your experiences, challenges and celebrations. Personally, I have two high achieving students- one just found out she was named a NMSF the other missed the cutoff by 1 point 😩. The one who didn’t achieve NMSF status, scored a perfect on the SAT English section and scored an overall 1550, way above her sister. One twin desperately wants to go to the same university as her sister, while the other strongly wants to venture out on her own and go to a different school. They are very close to each other and are each other’s biggest cheerleader. It is impossible for me to imagine them living apart in a year, but that appears to be the path we are on. I’m so proud of them for their individual achievements and I am anxious to see where this college search journey takes them. Presently, U of Alabama is the front runner for the NMSF student, while the other is leaning towards Indiana U or Purdue. I’d love to hear your journey.35 replies
