    Wabash? No way! They just announced they will no longer issue sheepskin diplomas.

    We did not find this to be the case (attending at low cost after scholarship), even after my son was offered a substantial scholarship and getting some additional $$ from participating in some competitive scholarship add ons, the cost was still going to be significantly more than where he ended up going with the scholarship he received at that school (even though where he went was out of state and a large school)

    I will say they definitely did make a good showing of the alumni being a tight group during my son's visit as they had many alumni in attendance, and definitely used that as a differentiating point (though I can also say similar about where my son did go to school as well from personal experience).

    I went there. It was the most amazing growing experience Iíve ever had. 1 out of 3 fail, transfer or otherwise donít make it. At least it was that way. I was unprepared but learned quickly that anyone who seeks help will get it, anyone who doesnít will flail. I can not recommend it highly enough, it is a unique and amazing place.

    sounds like our experiences were similar.

    I'm surprised by that! Which high school in Montgomery County did your son attend?

    I went there, graduated in 1991. It was an experience I would hate to trade. I was not a frat guy and felt a little left out. I was on the football team which was probably the reason I went there. I gave up football after 2 years but my knees donít know it. I did not pursue graduate school. I think Wabash is a great prep for that avenue, but I was done with school and wanted to get on with life. It is a heck of a school and we all remember the good times, but it was a challenge. By the way, I met my wife at a party there. So, donít let the all men thing bother you. Women know where to find real men.....

    Ok, so by local you mean Montgomery county and not Central Indiana? If so, and there is special funding for Montgomery County, then I spoke out of turn.

    My son did get offered substantial scholarship funds, but the starting price was significant, so even after a substantial decrease due to scholarship, it was still significant.

    And again, not meaning to speak out of turn, just what we encountered when my son was seriously considering Wabash.

    Yes, local means specifically Crawfordsville HS, Southmont HS, or North Montgomery HS. Several of my HS classmates and a number of others I know went there at no direct cost to them or their parents. It's not unusual for colleges to offer extra incentives to locals. I can't speak for Wabash, but I know of some small schools that also relax admission standards for local students (which is a two-edged sword).

    the benefit being when your fraternity brother's family owns the drive in south of town and chili dog night coincides with chapter meetings. So he rolls in with grocery bags of leftover chili dogs every week. God bless, Zach.
