Younger son is academically advanced (high SATs, great grades) but extremely introverted. He spent his first two years at community college and did very well. Now he is transferring to a four-year institution here in NC. He was accepted to all the schools he applied to, including Chapel Hill. But he wants to go to UNC Wilmington; he enjoyed our campus visit, found the people friendly and welcoming, etc.
However, various people are telling me he would be crazy to turn down Chapel Hill...that it would be better for his career, etc. etc. etc.
I don't want to pressure him. I kind of pressured older son to do the MA in Management program at Wake Forest, and he has not exactly enjoyed it. :p
We've already signed up for UNCW. We have until 5/15 to give Chapel Hill a decision. I still feel conflicted, but my son really does not want to go to a huge, overwhelming school.
