In this episode Vicki and Lynn answer some of the questions they have heard from parents. Topics include transferring colleges, readmission and appeal, timing of internships, and how to figure out how things are really going for your student. We don’t have all of the answers, but we share our observation based on our professional and personal experience.

We did something we haven’t done in a while in this episode. We took a look at some of the questions we’ve received from parents. We know that if one person asks a question there’s a good chance that others have the same question. It’s always rewarding for us to think about what parents want to know.
We had questions of all kinds and we touched on a lot of topics.
- Should my student have a job while in school?
- Who can my student talk to if they want to transfer?
- We miss our student! Should they come home every weekend?
- Should I be worried about how much my student is going out with friends and drinking? They’re studying abroad and so far away!
- How soon is too soon for my student to do an internship?
- What should be in a good student appeal letter for reinstatement?
- Can a student who bombed out first year of college get a clean slate somewhere else? Do they need to send their transcript?
- What should I do when my student comes home for a visit and doesn’t want to go back to school?
- How can I tell if my student is really adjusting and doing well?
