One of my fears is that I will disappoint my daughters by not helping them prepare adequately for college. I’m not talking about helping them with homework. I’m referring to the college search and application process. Going to college these days is a LOT different than it was when I applied in 1975.
I’ll be honest: for a few of us so very fortunate to have successful (and willing) parents, the college process boiled down to where we wanted to go, as well as where we could be admitted. Most people asked me back then, “Where do you want to go?” not “Where do you think you can get in?”
