A Mother's Perspective (Looking Beyond the Obvious)

 This is part III of Libby's college planning series, "A Mother's Perspective". You can see her first post here and her second post here.

After visiting the School of Education open house at a major university, my daughter now had a better idea of what she wanted in a college – an undergraduate degree in elementary education in a program that brought students into school classrooms within the first year of college. was a great resource for both of us. While I enjoyed searching colleges looking for places to visit, I knew that the important decisions were my daughter’s to make. I made several suggestions of places for her to look, but in the end she’s the one who chose where to apply.

By plugging her information into the College Board site, she found several schools that offered the degrees she was considering and that matched well with her credentials. She then visited their websites and narrowed her list to schools offering programs similar to the one she had fallen in love with.

Two of these schools are not well-known where we live, although they are well-respected nationally. One of them offered half-tuition off for education majors – a huge plus and bringing their already lower cost nearly comparable to our state university. (Our state university does not offer the program she was looking for.) The other, though still expensive, was significantly less than the major university that was the current front-runner.

So now she had a list of where to apply.

Next – applications, the second time around.
