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.

About Jack

Jack (born April 11, 2015) is named after the late Dean of Admission, Jack Blackburn. Like CavDog before him, Jack loves students and is an enthusiastic greeter during our Days on the Lawn open houses. Most people don't realize that Jack is not CavDog now that he is grown, so we have mostly dropped his original name, CavPup.

Jack's favorite toys are sticks and his favorite thing to eat is anything that fits in his mouth, which includes sticks, socks, leaves, and treats.
