    Did anyone drop their child off for AIM today? Just wondering how the process went in person? We live in Texas so our son flew alone and was picked up at the Providence Airport. He was suppose to have called but when he got there he txt us and said he was not allowed to call. Kind of surprised us, but sure everything is ok. Just wanted to ask if anyone was on site at check in and could offer any perspective on how it went today? We plan to travel to CT on Thursday to be there for parents day on Friday.

    AIM tries to give a "real" taste of what the first summer is like as a swab.

    Our daughter flew by herself. She texted some photos and a note of excitement as she got close to campus. I am looking forward to hearing all about it next weekend! How great that y'all get to go visit campus!

    I took the week off as a vacation, flew up there as a family and dropped daughter off. It was all handled very professionally, as expected. We returned on family day and attended all of the activities. AIM was exactly what my daughter was hoping it would be, and then some. It provided her with an idea of what to expect, and she wants to continue the journey by applying for admission.
