No, we have several colleges near us, so one of them makes a lot of sense. All three of my sons have ended up going to a satellite campus of Indiana University and Purdue University. Even after two of them started at different universities, they ended up transferring. One is in graduate school (Purdue campus for pharmacy school). The other two live at home and will commute in the fall. Yep, you read that right---3 of my 4 children are in college.
I looked once for DS who wants to be an archaeologist but doesn't want to go far away to college, but we weren't hsing then. I think I will look more when they are hsing and choosing classes/subjects to make sure they are meeting the requirements for whatever college they want to go to.
Our kids are interested in going to college in Boston, the area where I am from originally. My family is all up there so everyone can't wait. :)
I am not. My oldest is only 4 lol.
I was too about a month or so ago
Quoting Dawn07:No, your not. My daughter has shown an interest in dancing and I was looking at Juilliard the other day.
My kids are all still elementary aged (going into 6th, 4th and 3rd), but as they express interest in things, I look to see what kind of careers are out there in those types of fields and what colleges offer what degrees. It's interesting to see what's out there. I have an artist, a musician/dancer, and one who is interested in robotics and science. It's fun for them to see what possibilities exist as well.
I don't do this I am to busy researching things for them in the here & now!
nope. if they're that interested, they'll pursue it.
