Admissions 101: The 2/2/2 rule

The latest topic for my Admissions 101 discussion group is the 2/2/2 rule for making sure the college campus visits many of you are making, or planning, do not deteriorate into hurtful family squabbles. I like the first 2 of the 2/2/2 rule but not the last 2. Confusing? Not really. Take a look and join the back-and-forth in this most electrifying of discussion groups.
