Over the past year and a half the family and I have been on an arduous journey visiting 15 colleges and universities in six states and DC trying to identify where our eldest will take her next steps in life. Along the way we have learned, on the fly, a new language one has to become familiar with to gain entrance into this new world of academic higher education. Granted, I've lived my whole life around higher education. In fact two of my all time favorite posts have been about colleges and college towns.

In the end all you can do is hope you've established firm ground for your kids to start life upon. Dang, I am glad my younger one loves Big State U as much as I do and doesn't want to go anywhere else so we don't have to go through all this BS again. I'm done!

I'm on my way
