Spring Break last year was spent cruising the caribbean. This spring break we are cruising a few college campuses.
First on the list this week was Georgetown University. A reach school on Kelly's list and somewhere we wanted to visit because of the long line of family members back to my great grandfather that attended Georgetown. She would represent the 5th generation in a row to attend.
The purpose of college visits is to see if there's a fit. Does she like the feeling she gets here? Does she like the offerings of the campus? Can she see herself here? Nowadays the college application process is a challenging and somewhat draining adventure and you want to be sure that you are giving all of your efforts to schools that you really want to attend.
The campus was beautiful. The downtown shopping was very attractive. I had lots of retrospective thoughts while walking the campus thinking about my grandfather and great grandfather walking this same campus. But the school might not stay on "the list" after our visit. Lots to think about.
