College Visits are SO Important
Have you been on a college visit with your college-bound student?
High school seniors are SO BUSY. I know, I was the mom of one a few years ago! Before you know it, your senior year has flown by and you are putting on your cap and gown for that big graduation moment.
Don’t get too busy though that you don’t take the time for your college visits!
You should plan NOW and sign up for college visits at the schools you are thinking about attending. If you are still unsure after one visit, go again. We visited my son’s college THREE times before he made his final decision.
We also shipped him out of town to visit a college in another state that he thought that he’d like to attend. He had a good time, but realized that the college was just not for him, as well as the distance. A plane ride home would make things very tough financially for our family.
