The Teen Wire: Our Parents, Our Gatekeepers

Original post made by Daniel Morizono, San Ramon Valley High School, on Dec 23, 2009

Topics will cover everything from pressures to apply early, to parental involvement, to dealing with acceptance, rejection and the hated wait-list option.

May I be the first to congratulate you on a brilliant piece about rites of passage and college admission.

I am quite certain the gatekeepers are aware of you, and one set of gatekeepers, in particular, surely must be very proud.
