My boy is 16 now, and 32 months he will be done with high school and needing to choose a college. His mom and I live in Oregon. I am recommending he find a school in GA, FL or NC. I believe I have found a correlation between distance from home and academic and post baccalaureate achievement. Folks who go a long way to school come out of the experience more experience and do better than those who stay too close to their mom's apron. What has been your experience in this matter?
