Whew! University of California College online applications are in, just in the wee nick of time. (Only had a few more hours to go. …)
Ricky applied to three, so we’ll keep our fingers crossed and hope for the best. He did great — He’s so motivated he did the whole process by himself. Now it’s just time to keep fingers crossed, fingers crossed, fingers crossed. …
I don’t remember the process being quite so elaborate in my day. Do any of you remember applying for college? I don’t recall writing essays for it, or mailing it in (with stamps!), being nervous, or anything. I vaguely recall sitting with my counselor and talking about possibilities, but that’s about it. Maybe it’s a bigger deal for the parents than for the kids. … 🙂
Or maybe I’m just getting old.
(Always a possibility.)
