"Thank you for all of the counseling that you provided this past year. I know that Natalie really enjoyed working with you, and she seems quite happy with her decision to attend U of OR . . . Thank goodness that you had the foresight to encourage her to apply to Northeastern and U of O. You were absolutely correct that she might come back from her 3 months in SE Asia and decide that she wanted a larger school; that's exactly what happened."
~ Jean Allen (daughter, Natalie, at U. of Oregon)
