I found the campus to be more attractive and imposing that I expected.

I didn't think the guy we met for the info session was that great, and I didn't think the tour was so great either.  My husband and son thought they were both just fine.  I can't tell if I'm just being a hardass because this was my job lo these many years ago, or maybe I'm just cranky, or maybe they have no perspective since this is our first one.

I'll be eager to see how our next one goes, wherever that will be.

What other campuses are you all planning on visiting?

I dunno exactly.

I have a kind of weird list I'm coming up with for him. Some esoteric ones, some urban ones. The list of places that would accept him is hard to figure out. Lousy grades in many subjects; good grades in a few hard subjects, high test scores. He's the classic profile of a smart kid who fucks around and thus he's no one you want on campus if you're playing close attention to retention rates. But if you're looking to boost your test score averages, maybe he looks like a good catch and a worthwhile risk.

My boss and I talk about this a lot. I can already see where this road leads. Essentially, no one who works at a university should ever go on a campus tour with their kid.
