College trips

One of the best experiences I had this year was visiting colleges with my daughter Sophie. An exercise in bittersweetness, it made me sad with anticipation of her going off to college and excited for her after seeing so many cool places where she might end up. Across a couple of trips we spent time in Chicago, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, and LA (she also went to Boston and New York with Diane). We bumped into a few San Francisco kids almost everywhere we went, and while each school was impressive in its own way, we laughed at how similar some of their pitches were – complete with identical phrases and in some cases identical jokes. Clearly they’ve all been to each other’s info sessions. No word yet on where Sophie will move next year…
