Finally, after multiple attempts, my son received an email back from his FFR with an offer of a meeting. He is very independent and wants to go alone. I want to go with him, but he is really resisting. Did most parents attend this initial meeting? Note: This isn't our first rodeo. My oldest son is at USMA, and we (he, rather) did his entire application process without the FFR. My second son's resume mirrors his brother's in terms of grades, ACTs, sports and other activities. So do we let this strong minded young man meet with his FFR alone, or do we insist on tagging along? And will she tell us anything we haven't done with our oldest or can find on the internet ourselves?
