<p>Here goes...after moving my daughter into Sacred Heart University, and all the anticipation and excitment, reality has hit my daughter very, very hard.
She's been in school 3 days, and has realized that dorm living is not for her.</p>
<p>She's been crying and depressed and disappointed in herself. SHe is so confused about what to do. She's going to stick it out for the rest of the week and really try and decide what is best for her. I am trying to be supportive, not talking her into staying, and not telling her to come home either. I want her to do what she thinks is best for her. SHe's majoring in nursing, a top ranked student, and was offered alot of scholarship money from all the schools she applied to. </p>
<p>If she decides to leave, what is the process?? I know we will be out the money that was paid in full for the first semester. ( my daughter's happiness is more important than the money...so I will handle that) Is it too late for her to start a first semester home since the schools will be starting tomorrow?
Will she now be a semester behind her graduating year? </p>
<p>I'm fairly new to these boards, and have been lurking for a while now, learning and listening to your insights and experiences. I am hoping that you will send me some positive feedback on my situation, and if anyone has been in a similiar situation, please share your stories with me. I am sitting here crying knowing that she is so unhappy.</p>
