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!
