    It is going to be a good day. Union has updated their portal. Brian has been accepted to Union. I'm so excited and happy for him. He was rather discouraged last night.

    Would love to hear how your son's trip was and his college decisions.

    Talk to you soon.

    Hi - it sounds like my two boys. My older son, who's at Hampshire, is a theater major. He's also deaf and is happy as a clam at Hampshire. I couldn't imagine my younger son (who's applying to UMass et al) at Hampshire ever. Sam has a nice GPA with a rigorous courseload but is frustrated to some degree about his standardized test scores. They're not bad by any means but when your cohort is a bunch of kids whose parents are professors at Dartmouth, well - you know! I ask asked him to apply to Clark because it feels like it could be a nice match. I figure he will get into UMass but the thought of those skyscraper dorms to me is a little offputting. We'll see!

    My name is Barbara Mellert - my Dartmouth email is [email protected] I take care of computing for the social sciences so if you're up my way, hollar!

    Take care,

    My daughter is in a different category academically than my son so she will be looking at different schools. She is interested in Dartmouth, Cornell, Bucknell, Lehigh. Wants schools that have both engineering and liberal arts (might be interested in economics, too).
