DawnM Posted October 21, 2017 Share Posted October 21, 2017 Ok, I have been looking at lists online, specifically this one: https://bigfuture.collegeboard.org/get-in/making-a-decision/off-to-college-checklist However, I am curious to hear from you all: 1. What are some things your child wished he/she had taken but didn't the first go-around? 2. What are some things your child took that weren't necessary and he/she ditched later on? 3. What would your child consider essential that may not be so common or on a list? 4. Any other advice. Some of you might think I am obsessing, and I am a little. If I could explain my college first day experience you would understand. I don't have time to type it all out right now, but the short version.....I flew in from Africa. My uncle picked me up at the airport, dropped me off in front of my dorm at noon (it didn't open until 2pm) and I sat on my trunk (with EVERYTHING I OWNED!) for 2 hours watching as people drove up in trucks and U-Hauls. I still remember being wide eyed and feeling lost. PS: And yes, I know there is Amazon and all sorts of things if you forgot something.....just still trying to prep Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
