choirfarm Posted January 28, 2012 Share Posted January 28, 2012 My son is going to a cool weekend at Baylor. He will go to the comp/eng dorm and stay overnight, go to classes with the students, activities, etc. I would like to do something similar at TCU, especially with the honors dorm. It doesn't look like they offer anything like that. I've asked on college confidential just to make sure. Now.. should I e-mail his academic advisor and ask? We met the man on our regular campus visit. He is the homeschool academic advisor; however, he is also the academic advisor for students from our region. I was wondering if I should have my son e-mail the question instead of me. Though, to be honest, he isn't sure he wants to do the Baylor one.. He's not sure he needs it. I think it will be like many things we have done with him: he is reluctant but with plenty of warning he goes and has a GREAT time. (This is a pattern.) Other thing to consider. We did the TCU regular campus visit and he had a great time. He went alone to talk to the professor and had a GREAT time- he came back trying to explain what discrete numbers were ( as we have never studied them) and how cool it was. (I nodded politely.) Then on the way out, I asked the office about the counselor part of the application and if I would fill that out. They sent me to this academic advisor who invited us in... That is not what I had intended. My son didn't have any warning... He slouched in the corner at first..very awkward. I was inwardly cringing...we hadn't really prepared for this. It got better as they got on some topics that he could come alive with.. Yes, we talked afterward about sitting up straight, looking people in the eye, etc... I just didn't realize we would be doing that.... From what I saw before we left, he did better with the professors... But he knew he was going to do that beforehand. Anyway, should I email the question or should I make him??? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
