I often get this kind of email from parents, “Hi Kristen. I know you will be meeting with my daughter (or son) soon and I wanted you to know that finances are a big concern of ours, as her parents. We haven’t told her that we can’t afford a lot for college, so we hope you will subtly work it into the advice you present. Thank you.”
Some students I meet with have a very definitive answer to the question of, “Do you want to play sports in college?” It’s either a resounding yes, or a clear no. But, for many students, the answer isn’t so clear-cut; I get a lot of “I don’t know yet.” And, while it’s understandable, and it’s a big decision, it could completely change the direction of your college search. The sooner you know the answer to this, the better.
