Setting the right course on college [Letter]

I have thought the college process is a little over the top after having put four children through college ("We share the blame for college student woes," June 16). The stress and the drama associated with high school students looking to make "the right choice" and going to seminars to have a chance at a "stretch" school seems to be rooted in money.

Consultants, teachers, guidance counselors, the colleges and universities are all in on making it a circus. We need to set expectations correctly as parents. The student only needs one school to attend at a time, and as Peter Morici said, "Teenagers need to be told a college education is mostly about earning a living."
