First college overnight!

DD is going on her first overnight visit to one of her prospective colleges.  Right now it's #3 on her list - wonder where it will be after her visit?

20yo DS did an overnight at the same college when he was looking.  Prior to his overnight, it was his #1 choice; afterwards, it fell to #2.  He felt the vibe was too mellow for him and he needed more energy.

DD has another overnight scheduled for next week at her #1 school.  She's already visited twice, so it would have to be a rotten experience to deter her. :smileywink:

Anyone else have a kid doing overnights at colleges?

weedosmom, does recruiting mean ED application? They didn't mention it to us, though DD is planning on doing ED application for that one school as it is. I need to call the admissions office today as it is, she was thinking of applying to the honors college there but it says you submit the application at the same time as the regular application. The honors college needs a second essay submission that she doesn't have ready yet and she wanted me to call to see if she could submit the honors college application under the regular timelines or if it has to be submitted at the same times as the ED deadline. The other 3 schools she is interested in she'll just be application regular admission, regular deadlines.

Good luck! I hope both experiences are great and help with her decisions!

DD and I are going to a recruiting weekend at her #1 school at the end of this month, she is really excited about it.
