As did many others:
My daughter is now a junior in college and the stress of the college application and admissions process is still fresh in my mind. It's torturous. I am not saying that I'm not grateful that she has the opportunity, just that I am a product of a time when it wasn't expensive and ridiculous so I know firsthand that it doesn't have to be the way it is now. Had my ex-wife and I been in the position to hire a pricey consulting firm to guide us in the process we very well may have.
