Because of his health issues, DS will continue to live at home during college. And I will continue to drive him to school. We are fortunate that we are in an area with several universities. But there are really only two which would be appropriate for him. One is a private school about 45 minutes away with a hefty price tag. The second is a large public university about 10 minutes away with reasonable tuition rates. DS will most likely have no trouble being accepted to the private school. The public school, however, has the luxury of being more selective because of the number of applicants it receives. If DS doesn't have solid SAT scores, he can forget it and I can plan on spending the next few years in the car and sweating over the transportation and tuition costs.
So please send some good vibes our way. We could use some good news tomorrow.
