My daughter applied to 3 colleges and one of them is my alma mater (also her father's). But she's told me that it's her 3rd choice of the 3. Then 2 nights ago, one of the swim coaches at that college called and talked to her for almost an hour, they want her to come swim for them next year. I was so excited for her and she seemed very excited about it, too. I'm sure it feels great to have someone want you instead of you trying to convince them to accept you. Anyway, now she's also gotten her acceptance officially from the college and heard nothing from her other 2 choices yet. I know she has lots of time to say "yes" and she'll probably get accepted by at least one of the others but I would really love it if she went to the same college both her father and I attended. But I'm playing it low-key, she already knows how I feel about it, so I'm trying not to push.

Hun, Hubby and I both attended the University of Florida and are true gators, and only one of my three made the choice to go there, we tried our best but to no avail , my son attended FSU Florida State, and we both cringed!!! but what can we do??? and my other daughter did her Masters here locally in Miami. Ultimately you got to let them choose for themselves and forget your old Alma mater!
