My DD and I took a trip northeast today to visit her plan B school and complete her PMS interview. We also took a tour of the campus while we were there. I have to say that I am very impressed. I am somewhat familiar with the campus because I work in college access programs and because DD spent some time there a few years back for a summer science camp but we got a personal tour this time and they even got us an immediate appointment with financial aid to get some questions answered. The PMS took a few minutes with both of us and then I went down the hall to talk to the ROO. The ROO was able to answer all my questions about costs, the program, the expectations, etc. He even helped us with an issue we are having with the scholarship portal. As is so often the case for those of us from Kentucky, we spent time talking about family, life, little league and the weather. I really came away feeling like they would do a great job working with my daughter. Everyone knew that she is waiting on a decision from West Point and no one tried to talk her out of it or put any pressure on her to make a decision. In fact, one of the instructors is a West Point graduate and the PMS asked him to meet with my daughter so that she could get some first hand information. He clearly laid out the differences and let her know it was all about what kind of experience she wants. It was a great day and I have to give props to all the folks who are working hard to make this happen.
