I have 2 high school sophomores and my dd all of a sudden is getting a ton of mail from colleges.  All basically telling her what a great college they are. Every time i open up the mailbox lately theres another 3 or 4.

If she's taking AP or IB classes, she'll get that.  Also some schools DO sell their mailing lists.

And its not too early to start planning either - we did college visits in their junior years - you need to narrow it down by then.

They must believe she would be a real asset to their school.  Congrats!  Some parents can't get thier graduates to show any interest in life after they get out of school.  Best wishes.

My son gets multiple college mailings a day.  It is somewhat annoying.  Mine is a senior this year so they are starting to slow down now.

Did she take a test like the PSAT? They started sending my son a ton after he took it early his soph year. His school is careful to keep the kids names off mailing lists because it can get overwhelming and honestly annoying.

She's been planning out college sicne she was in elementary school  lol.  I can't tell you how  many books we have on the subject and how much she's checked out schools online.  But she has not yet actually put her name out there for anything.  We've been to a college fair held at her school but that was early freshman year.

My daughter is getting the same thing, emails and regular mail from different colleges. I was wondering the same thing but I guess from what the first poster posted I guess it is contributed to her AP class.

We would get piles and piles of it. We still do and they've been out of high school for years now, well a few of them have.
