May 1st decision day has come and gone for some schools; however, many others have extended their deadline to June 1st or later. Despite the extension, some high school seniors are faced with the decision of basing their college decision off of solely an online tour if they were unable to visit campuses prior to the virus.
To all parents out there navigating the college process in these unprecedented times, we would like to thank you for working overtime to make sure your child finds the best fit. While it is still cloudy as to when we will be restored to normal, we would like to take this time to clear up what we do know for both high school seniors and juniors.
For parents of high school sophomores and juniors, April break is usually an excellent time to start touring the schools on your child’s list. However, closed campuses and social distancing have made the tour process all that much more difficult. Many schools offer virtual tours, but can you summarize all that a school has to offer by the click of a mouse?
In addition to thinking about your retirement needs, we find that it is common for grandparents to want to help fund their grandchildren’s college education as well. If possible financially, helping to fund your grandchild’s college offers a great way to invest in your grandchild’s future and help them with the ever-growing costs of a college education.
