This is my first question here and sorry if it is stupid, we are brand new to this process. This is my oldest kid. I have an rising junior. He is starting dual enroll this fall at a CC part time doing a couple general eds. He is a music kid. He did a workshop this summer that pushed him suddenly from "I don't even want to talk about college" to "I absolutely NEED to do music in college". This coincided with us casually doing some local college tours this summer.
There is a college in a neighboring state that sounds really like it could be an amazing fit for him on paper and for our parental sensibilities if we could make the $$$ piece work. It's a conservatory program and a strong LAC. He could double major and the program has a ton of flexibility from the look of it. He may be in a position for decent merit aid depending on how the ACT goes for him in the spring (he already had ACT scores at the top end of this school's middle 50% as a sophomore).
So he gets an e-mail today from this college saying they will be in our area in a few weeks doing casual QA style interviews at a coffee shop and he can sign up for a time slot. I think this could be really great for him because he has a lot of questions about following a less than conventional music road.
Do you think they would be open to meeting with a junior for something like this? If we're on the mailing list does this mean it's probably ok? I think they got our info through Cappex. Would it be out of line for me as a parent to e-mail and ask? Since auditions are required for these music schools, I just feel like it might be better to be proactive about learning about these programs as much as possible this year to see what might be a good fit. And as a parent, I already have a love and bias for this program I have to admit.
This is not a JAWM.
