I've been fascinated by the Rio Olympics this past week. Other than the polluted water, green-tinted swimming pools, armed robberies, and fatal taxi deaths for competitors, I've found a lot to like.
I was watching track and field competition the other day. It seemed as though each event had a huge number of aspirants vying for the finals. So, there were seemingly endless rounds of preliminary races. They're called “heats," an appropriate term, considering the Rio weather. All these qualification rounds got me to thinking about the college search process.
