S wasn't fully enthused about where he was offered admission and applied to Pitt earlier this month. His offer of admission arrived today. So he has to make his decision in less than a week (to get the housing guarantee)! With prep for several AP exams underway, he really doesn't want to miss any school. So that leaves THIS SATURDAY as the only campus tour opportunity. I also understand finals are underway now, so Pitt is going to be emptying out, if it hasn't already.
He's thinking of majoring in econ, possibly a double-major with English or Math/Stats (I see there's an official double-major for that) and expects to have a fair amount of AP credit. He's going to try to speak with people in admissions and the econ department tomorrow and Friday by phone and email. Besides taking the tour, I'd like recommendations of things to see and do on campus that might help him decide, keeping in mind it's the weekend after finals. One of his best friends will be going to Pitt and the older brother of another friend is at CMU, so we can get general info on college life in Pittsburgh from them.
If you are in majoring econ, english, or belong to Pitt's Hillel (yes I know it's Shabbat and Pesach) and will be around this Saturday and might be available to meet for coffee (I'll buy), please PM me. Thanks!
