At my high school in California, spring break of junior year meant one thing and one thing only- visiting east coast colleges. This means I spent nine days travelling from Boston, up to Maine, and back down the coast to New York to see fourteen colleges (it was supposed to be sixteen but we had some mishaps). Before leaving on this trip my parents made me decide who I wanted to come with me- my mom or dad (which is essentially like asking me which parent I love more). Since my mom and I are essentially the same person, it made more sense for my dad to come to offer up another opinion. Even though my dad and I ended up in a yelling match in the parking lot at Logan Airport (in Boston) fueled by lack of sleep from our red eye flight and my (apparent) inability to read a map, we still think that this road trip was one of the most fun times we have had together. We laughed a lot, went through nine “college road trip” CDs, and managed to go to most of the Dunkin Donuts on the east coast. So, here are my tips for any juniors, or seniors who are making their final decision, who will be doing college visits during their break!
