After months (and months!) of prepping for the PSAT, SAT, SAT2 and ACT, writing multiple college apps, and studying for classes, your child has received the Golden Ticket-college acceptance(s). Not everyone gets into their first choice, but, nonetheless, you and your child breathe a sigh of relief because the waiting is over and, most of all, your kid is going to college!
Those months leading to move-in day can be exciting and overwhelming and will definitely be bringing up all kinds of emotions. If you are becoming an empty nester multiply that by 100. I found great comfort in knowing what to expect from family members and friends graciously willing to show me the ropes. Now that I’m a “veteran” with one in college and the other in law school, it’s my turn to share what I’ve learned with you.
