On Sunday afternoon, Jack, Sharon and I spent an hour at Future Stars with Scott Hamilton. Future Stars is a college counseling center designed to guide families through the college admissions process. This is our fifth session [9/9/2013, 1/14/2014, 9/24/2014, 1/25/2015].
The session focused on developing a potential list of colleges. We walked through a list of more than 300 colleges in the United States. Based on Jack's feedback to a survey about the characteristics that he is looking for in a college, we cut the list down to 31 colleges. Jack will be working with Scott in April to start researching these colleges and further refine the list. We are already starting to plan a couple of trips to visit colleges.
