Happy Birthday to Abe (for Sunday). He is 19!!!
Abe went to college open house last weekend.
And he also got a huge scare.
BSC only houses around 50% of its students, the rest mostly being commuters with a few living just off-campus. But Abe wouldn't go here unless he got housing. But it was stated at the open house (and true for all Massachusetts state schools) that if an applicant is accepted Early Action, s/he has a much greater chance of getting housing than those students that wait for general decision.
The deadline for getting the application in for Early Action is...... TODAY!!!!
Luckily, the application is on-line and they allow all of the supplementary documents to come in after the deadline (like the HS transcript and the SAT scores).
So rush, rush, rush. Abe has written an essay- for the common college application (which BSC does not take) but it's at school and not at home, so there were arrangements to be made to get it emailed to mom and then Mom to press the send button. (done)
Eeek. But then I get into a funk, can Abe actually handle college? Sometimes I think yes, and sometimes I think no. Time will tell.
To be continued.....
