Peabody is the building, Jack is the dog, and I'm Dean J (she/her, btw).

Three notes:
1. There's fifteen years of posts here, so the search box can help find an answer to common questions, but please consider the age of the posts when you find them. The college admission process changes over time!

2. The comment box doesn't show up when viewing the blog optimized for mobile. Click the "view full site" link at the bottom of the page and the site will reload with comment boxes.

It's DOTL #4



It's the fourth Days on the Lawn today. The news websites are saying it's going to be a beautiful day, but I don't have first hand knowledge about what it's like in Charlottesville right now. Some of us are missing today.


Grounds will be full of students and folks eager to help you discuss your college options. However, three of us are tucked away in a hotel in the suburbs of Baltimore for the annual PCACAC conference.


The morning session at PCACAC is about to start. 
That's Eric Hoover from The Chronicle and Jim Jump from St. Christopher's School. 

PCACAC is the regional chapter of the professional organization to which college counselors and college admission officers belong. We get together once each year to talk about the state of college admission in the area.

I wish I was in Charlottesville this morning to greet our visitors and I'm sure CavDog is wondering why he isn't going to Grounds today, but we know you'll have a wonderful time without us.

Have a wonderful day! I'll be back on Grounds on Wednesday. Until then, feel free to leave a comment if you have a question for me.
