mooooom Posted January 25, 2011 Share Posted January 25, 2011 I do feel like one, I have no clue what we are doing. Let me preface this by saying I have three (my only) graduating next year. Two of them have some idea of what they want to do. The third doesn't have a clue. I have had them all go on the College Board website and do college searches. We have a list of some places they want to visit. I have had them go online and look for Open House dates. I need my dh to sit down and schedule where we are going to go when (I'm terrible with directions). My main questions - do you just go to the Open House and then go home? Or do you try and make arrangements to visit with someone involved in the specific department your child is interested in, and if so, how do you do that? For the places that are further away, we really can't afford to be hitting places twice, especially with three kids needing to do it. And if we do try to do this, should they have resumes to bring with them, and anything else? And then, I have all these extreme fears about financing. People have told me not to even worry about it at this stage - that any school might offer something good. And that private schools are more likely to do it than state schools (dd is mostly interested in state schools as they have the best Animal Science facilities). And how do you know what schools are reach schools, vs good shots, vs they will take anybody? Is it all dependent on SAT scores (they are signed up to take them in Mar)? PSAT scores were good but not award winning. Thanks for reading this far. I am so overwhelmed. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
