While I was looking for Christmas movies the other night, I stumbled on the P&P movie, so I decided to read “Jane Austen in Scarsdale”. It’s a modernization of “Persuasion” where Anne is a high school guidance counselor.

Of course it’s a love story, but I also enjoyed the whole explanation of the college admissions process that Anne battles for her students. We’ll be going through that soon as my son applies to colleges, and I vow to NOT be like many of the parents she describes in the book.

  1. Don't know what grade your son is in, but start NOW LOL! We waited until the very last moment, and that was a mistake. Get your ducks in a row with FAFSA (if you're U.S.) and check out for scholarships and the like. A friend of mine's daughter has a friend who started in his junior year in high school applying for scholarships. By the time he graduated, he'd accumulated $350,000 in free money to go on to college/university! It's never, ever too early to start!
