    My son is 11th grader, so we are just starting this journey.

    We went to a Class of 2017 meeting last night and when we left, he asked, "When do they expect me to sleep?"

    He is doing dual enrollment right now, which means he will be accepted as a freshman and then be registered as a Junior.

    We are starting to get Sports letters from Colleges and he had his first scholarship offer (Christian College, so no thank you!)

    He rocked his PSAT's and we have the 1st SAT scheduled. (There is a company here that offers a free test that will tell you if your student will do better then on the SAT or ACT, so we are considering that.) We are also considering the SAT subject test since he is currently taking Cal. 2 (which is beyond 99% of most High Schoolers)

    We can visit a few in state colleges and the UW would be great, but he (my mathematically gifted child) is still insisting on Paleontology and just a few schools offer that as a major. We told him that honestly the first time he steps foot on campus might be when he goes there.

    Kid is going to Reed.

    When the decision was made we headed to the bookstore where he bought several T-shirts. One said Reed and was surrounded by the words - Atheism, Communism, and Free love. LOL. Don't know how that one will go over with the neighbors but, whatever.
    Dd went for an understated dark gray on light gray t-shirt and is going to Northeastern. She wanted east coast urban and she got it. They gave her great aid so it all worked out in the end and I am so glad this process is over, so, so glad. And I don't have to do it again for several years.

    My kids each picked schools whose colors are black and yellow. Makes it easy if we choose to support their schools through attire!!

    Sooooooo glad the college selection process is over. I don't think my blood pressure would survive a third circus.

    Mine either. I am hoping the second time around I will have learned enough that it is less stressful. Of course my dds are so different from each other that we will be looking at a very different set of schools, but hopefully some of my hard won wisdom will be applicable. Lol I don't even know what colors NEU uses, just that the mascot is a husky. I think red and something.
