One of my kids' favorite books when they were little was
by Kevin Henkes about a little girl mouse who worried about everything, especially starting school.
What if the teacher is mean? What if they make fun of my name? What if I have to cry?
This time of year, I can relate to Wemberly's worries as we enter March and the countdown to regular decision college acceptances or denials ticks down.
March can be a tense month as applicants wait to hear back from their Regular Decision schools. Once you know all of your options, it's time to sit down and make some choices. Maybe you have a clear first choice, or maybe you want to attend Admitted Students day at your top choices. If you are going to visit or revisit schools, be mindful to focus on what's important to you. The good news is you're in the driver's seat now!
