Tick, tick, tick. My son has 19 days to chose a college by May 1st. This is his spring break, and we are on a whirlwind east coast college tour: Pittsburgh, Boston, and New York. When we return, we may hit a few more California schools. To add to all the craziness, there are still a few schools that he really likes that have him waitlisted. All this is stressful, but fun, except for the cold I caught in Pittsburgh.
