Hello, I am a parent of a new candidate for class of 2014. We scheduled his overnight visit for April 8-9, because he is on spring break that week. Today we get the letter about the Open House on the 12th! We are driving up from GA, and staying over in a hotel already while he attends the overnighter. Staying longer to attend the open house would mean staying 3 more nights in a hotel AND putting him on a flight so he can get back quicker to get back to school sooner. So I am wondering how crucial is it to attend the open house? Anybody else skip open house and did just fine?
