College Awareness

Monday, January 23, 2012

Recently our oldest took the PSAT test,   though her score was above average for her grade, it was not amazing either.

None the less,  now we have  a parade of daily emails to my email box this last week.  All offering their services to help her learn more about their school or lines like  "You're the Talent we are looking for".    Some have targeted her interest in science and math careers, so it is interesting to see such daily attention.  Well, so far, she has her eyes on another school, but if Princeton or Harvard come calling, well...... she may think twice.  Then again they are no BYU, so who knows.   At one point they were on her list of dream schools.

Here is the list.  I will add as the list grows.   I thought it would be fun to see how the list grows.   I just hope we don't get too much spam.

Montana State University,  Bozeman, MT  
University of Pacific in Stockton, CA
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY 
Mills College, Oakland, CA
University of Portland,  Portland, OR
Willamette University, Salem, OR
Humboldt State University, Arcata, CA
Corban Universtiy, Salem, OR
Linn Field
Portland State
Southern Oregon University

Note:  4/19 -  I haven't added to this list, but the letters and emails keep rolling in.  No less than 5 or 6 a week.   We now look at the pretty paper they are printed on and just delete the emails.   I just have not been able to keep up with all the junk mail.
