Hard to believe the kid who can’t pick up his own socks will soon be heading off to college. We’ve just made a whirlwind tour of the different institutions at which he’s been accepted. Since he has trouble making decisions, he was sure to keep all his bases covered when submitting applications. These colleges run the gamut–a small liberal arts school, a geeky polytechnic institute, a sprawling urban university. He knows that sports will be a main factor in the decision-making process. Meanwhile, finances figure prominently in ours. Tuitions at most universities to which he’s applied is around $50,000 including room and board. Yikes! Decision, along with a hefty deposit, is due by May 1st. Stressful time for all!
