My youngest still scares me, though. His is a little smaller than the other two, and he's thinking of going to some pretty expensive places. Even with all the planning, we may still be scratching a little ass by the time it's all done.

Already told 1poorkid that I can cover in-state tuition, but anything else she will have to get herself a scholarship. I simply can't do $15K or more per semester. She's mentioned Stanford, Johns Hopkins, and some others. Great...if she gets a full ride.

She hasn't applied anywhere yet. She's a junior. National Honor Society. She stopped playing soccer because she feared she wouldn't have enough study time (so she says...I sometimes wonder how much monitoring Twitter feeds and watching Glee had to do with it!). IMO, she'd have a better shot at a scholarship if she was an athlete as well as a scholar.

She's already receiving brochures from schools, I assume from her taking the PSAT.
