College applications

Tuesday, August 5th, 2014, 7:39 pm

With one son having graduated from high school this year and another who will graduate in 2015, we've become quite familiar with the college application process.  What an ordeal!  There's the common ap, of course, but then the individual college applications all want something a little different.  And the essays!  I particularly like the one where they ask the student to complete the essay in exactly 28 words, no more, no less.  Having great letters of recommendation, well, that goes without saying.  Great grades? Of course!  AP test scores of 4 or 5?  Better have it all.  We saw the movie 'Admission' last year as our son started this process.  Funny movie, but I can say it actually kind of mirrored the entire experience.  This is a great time in my sons' lives, whether they realize it or not.  And mine too.  Watching them grow, mature, make meaningful decisions, and start down paths over which I have no control...fantastic stuff!  It's scary, but I sure am enjoying it!

Thank you for reading this small digression from the usual plastic surgery information.

    I'm venturing into those unchartered waters in 2015 (well, actually now) and I'm feeling very anxious about the process. It's hard enough getting my 17 year old out of bed before noon and then getting the chores done before I get home from work...the whole soon-to-be college and scholarship application is rather a daunting thought. Any helpful tips and advice you provide to me would be so appreciated.

    God Bless these graduates!

    Thank you for sharing your experience, Dr. Kunkel

    Keep the digressions coming.
