Austin, Texas

This past weekend I attended the Annual Conference for College Admissions Counselors in Austin, Texas. I learned a lot including how big a business College Admissions is in the US. There are companies that prepare high schoolers to take tests. How to apply to College. There are independent consultants that parents hire in order to get their kids into the ‘right school’. A lot of money was represented at this conference. There were nearly 5500 registrants.

On a fun note, both Andy Smith and I were able to get and pick up a few geocaches during our downtime. You can see the pictures in the photo album. There were also quite a few that we didn’t find. But urban geocaching can be like that. They are really clever at hiding them so that the muggles don’t mess with the caches. Andy has some more pictures of Austin and geocaching in his flickr. I just remembered one more picture that Andy took.
