In just a week or so, college admissions decisions will be arriving for high school seniors. I liken this to reaching the 10K-to-go point in a marathon, not the finish!
I've run a few marathons in my day, including the Boston Marathon, and I can attest to the the physical and psychological effects of that 10K point. For high school seniors, getting those “Yes!" letters, emails, and packages are moments of glory. But, there is still that 10K to go — from that “Yes!" to graduation.
