I'm going to try to post this so as not to be too revealing re my child's identity. Anyway, after being singlemindedly focused on a service academy all year and doing all the hard work to get an appointment, he is now having second thoughts. Is this usual? He didn't want to visit any of the colleges he had applied to; now he wants to visit a couple. Seems pretty stressed and preoccupied. Worried about what he will be giving up with either decision. I am somewhat floored because he was so happy when he got the appointment. He knows he has to decide for sure by the end of the month. I don't want to keep asking him about it-- in fact, he seems to resent that his last months of high school are clouded by this stress and he does not appear to want to talk about his decision. Any thoughts?
