  • I don’t Care Where My Children Go To College

    Posted on December 16th, 2015 Alan No comments

    I don’t either!  I don’t care if Kristen plays a sport in college either, I really don’t.  It doesn’t mean that I rule it out though.  Without going overboard,  I want to prepare my kids and give them the opportunity to make whatever choice they want for themselves in regards to the college they attend.

    My favorite comment:

    “This idea that students have to excel at the highest level (with experience dating back to early childhood) is supremely flawed. If everyone is a black belt, fluent in Mandarin and the captain of [fill in the blank] sports team, how can one differentiate any of these children? I was an admissions director for a master’s program for a short while. I can tell you after reading hundreds of essays that your child isn’t special. He’s doing exactly what all the other applicants are doing. Exactly.”
