DD was wondering when she'd start getting emails from colleges, since she took the PSAT in the fall.

Jorsyn has just really started getting more and more college stuff in the mail over the last 3-4 weeks. Mostly postcards,but we are getting them 3-4 days a week now.

No, I don't think you have a choice between the two. You just check if you are interested in information... it's up to the school whether you get an email, letter or both. DD's a Sophmore and didn't really think anything about checking that box.

Wow I didn't know email was an option and don't know if my son checked it.

Hmm, I'll have to ask 19yo DS if he's gotten any "transfer here!" emails.

When DD got an email from the U of Chicago, it reminded me of your "Hogwarts" comment when your DD visited it!

I think what you will also find interesting is that you will get a huge flood of mail promoting transfers two years down the road. I guess they realize that a lot of kids stay home and do CC. We felt like it never ended, with the girls 3 grades apart. First dd21, then dd21 at two years, then dd19...I also think that some must get age lists to use, because both girls graduated relatively young (age 16 and age 17) and we also got mail at the more "traditional" times

I'm guessing that my dd didn't check the box.

Jordyn made sure to not check the box, she has gotten a few things in the mail from an art college that visited their photography class and the one she went to Latin day for in Latin club, but that's been it so far. Oh, she has gotten quite a. It from Stanford's summer program and online high school, but so far nothing else. She's got her's pretty well narrowed down and she doesn't need anything else cluttering up her room, that's for sure!
