Do You Have a Child Heading to College?

Hey Neighbors!

I don't tink I shared anything about this yet, but one of my sons is beginning college this week.  I am amazed!  No, not that he is attending college, but how much of this he did on his own initiative and accomplished in the time limit he had.  He has amazed me.



To start off, he ad been discussing college for a short time.  He is interested in Law Enforcement.  He did quite a bit if internet research trying to decide the best route for himself.  Online classes? Going away to college?  Local community college?  He finally decided to go with the local community college.  Then al the paperwork began.  Looking back at this time, I could really have used the Kaplan KapMap to help us get started.  We probably would have begun the process earlier.

He was able to complete much of the paperwork online.  He filled out the application and the paperwork for grants.  He did extra study online to help prepare for the testing process.  All of this was in addition to his regular job and keeping up with his chores around the home.

When the day for testing arrived he headed out with prayers going up for him.  We all rejoiced when he called and said his scores were great and he was planning what courses to take.  Immediately following finding out his class schedule he went to work so they could rearrange his schedule around his college hours.  Yes, they are actually working with him.

I do have to say that we managed to get everything done and he is now ready for his first day this week.  I  think the KapMap would have helped us in preparing, so I am hoping it will help some of my neighbors out.  Click on the KapMap link and you will be able to receive a free 2014 KapMap College Planner.
