Enter to Learn, Go Forth to Serve (A Second Round)
Quinn is somewhat of a procrastinator and VERY stubborn. He refused to fill out his college applications before he left on his mission. He'd been recruited by a couple of small schools to play basketball, one over in Seattle and another a long ways away and I wasn't too keen on the idea. At the time he wanted to go there. I wanted him to go to BYU. So neither of us did anything about it and off he went. Well time got away from us and it was time to apply SOMEWHERE before he got home so he could step into college in January. With help from Danielle, we got his applications into BYU, BYU Hawaii, and BYU Idaho. Missionary work is his top priority right now and he told me to apply anywhere he thought would be best for him.
His dad and I are BYU fans in every way. WE both went there. WE met there and fell in love. It is a GREAT education for an even better price, but its not particularly easy to get in, especially BYU Provo. The average GPA is about a 3.85 with an ACT score of about 27.4. We sent in the applications and crossed our fingers. Well the news is in---Quinn was accepted to BYU, BYU Hawaii and BYU Idaho. He said the choice is mine? Oh, so many decisions. I am open to any and all ADVICE....
