Two days after our first college visit (to Carnegie-Mellon), my son confessed at dinner that he doesn't want to go to college at all. He wants to move to New York, take classes, and work. We talked it through, and he seems quite serious about it. He's only a sophomore, so I know he has plenty of time to change his mind. But surprisingly, I wouldn't be heart- broken if he tried out the real world first (though I don't think I can abandon CC yet!) Have any of you encountered this with your kids? Should I push college on a kid who probably wouldn't appreciate it?
