Parent/Student with completely opposite reactions to a college after a visit
I have been on many college visits with my HS senior and we have had similiar views regarding the schools until the last one we visiited. Any of the other schools that we have toured I would be happy to have my child attend but this particular school I didn't like at all and I had an uncomfortable feeling about it. My child loved the school and somehow it has moved into the number 1 spot. Of course, we are still waiting on acceptances and scholarship information from this school and others but I am struggling with this school. The other factor is that at this school they would be able to play their sport and at the other schools that wouldn't be an option. I think that this has clouded the opinion of the school. I don't necessarilly think the school is bad, I just don't think it's a good fit. I'm not sure what to do because ultimately it's their choice but this is also the most expensive school depending on scholorship award. Has anyone been in a similiar situation and how was it handled or any advice you can offer.33 replies
