And I am going to sigh again because the topic of this entry makes me tired.
When Z did his college apps two years ago (has it only been two years???), he went through the whole tedious process of filling in his personal information, academic information, test scores etc into the Common apps or online applications forms for the universities of his choice. Then he had to fill out the supplement applications and write the essay/s for each of the colleges & submit them. I had to keep track of the deadlines & keep pushing him to complete his essays so that we & his college counselor could review them before he submitted them. It was a tiresome, tedious & time-consuming task especially since Z DID NOT/DOES NOT enjoy writing essays!
Now it's W's turn & to add an extra layer of complexity to the whole process, because he is applying to study Music, he needs to submit extra applications with the associated essays to the universities' music colleges AND record his music so that it is sent off to them for prescreening, AND THEN, if it passes the prescreening process, he would need to submit a recorded audition or go for a live audition. AND all these have deadlines!
I feel tired just thinking about it.
I will be happy when Jan 15, 2012 arrives or Dec 15, 2011 when the Early Decision results are released (hopefully he can get in but then it's a tough school to get into).
I am so glad I only have 2 kids to put into college. I don't think I can survive another round.
