    The only bad thing is she needs to 100% decide between Berkeley and Cornell by 1 April. Those schools are in the worst hit states in the country so visiting the schools, even while closed, is not a good idea in my opinion.

    She ordered her free T shirt last night so it looks like Cornell is a go. Very happy for her and excited fo ray wife and I. We love upstate NY (have made many trips to Lake Placid for the Olympic Training Center). Looking forward to many more trip to the area in the years to come.

    Got even more good news today, the financial package arrived and she got an incredible offer. We'll only have to pay $21k a year and that includes everything. Tuition, housing, meal plan, everything. Books will probably be on us but I'm not sure. We already pay $11k for her high school so not much more of a burden. I've been hiding my breath!
