Your college admissions experience

Tell us about your family’s college admissions experience

It’s that time of year when Long Island high school seniors’ attentions turn to their inboxes as they wait patiently for an email that will confirm or dash their hopes and dreams. The college admissions process is underway.

The journey to college acceptance is a long one that often involves the whole family and starts years before that fateful letter arrives. As families around the Island celebrate and console their high schoolers this month, share your experiences — from financial aid forms to campus visits; from the good to the bad — with Newsday readers.
