In a couple of weeks I am taking my son to visit some schools that have expressed interest in him as a baseball player. All are D3 HAs, so there are no sports scholarships at issue.
I have done the college application slog before with my older kid, but without the athletics piece. Admissions office info sessions and campus tours are familiar territory.
At each school, my son also has scheduled a meeting with a baseball coach or coaches. My plan is to help the boy find the correct building and then go get a cup of coffee while he talks with them. Here's the question: Is the coach likely to want to meet me at some point? Should I hang around the lobby of the building so my son can text me to come join him at some point if the coach wants to eyeball me? What's the usual protocol?
