My son (exactly half your age at 24) starts law school next week (yes, must disclose it's Harvard for parental bragging rights!) but is committed to a career in public service, and wants to be an advocate for disadvantaged kids specializing in education law.

Sam, he's going to the right place....not so easy to get into Harvard...my grand daughter has many HS honors but failed to make the grade....now Leeds school of business at U CO at Boulder.

Best of luck to him ......and you have every right to be proud of him.

Thanks, Don. I am very proud, not only of his academic achievments, but his social consciousness as well. He just spent two years in Sitka, Alaska in Americorps service working with disadvantaged kids in a middle school there. He also spent a very difficult three weeks in the Alaskan wilderness for an environmental project. He loves the outdoors (a NYC kid) , and just hiked the famous and treacherous 35-mile Chilkoot Trail - solo, an undertaking that had his parents anxious as he was off the grid for four days, amidst danger of avalanche, unpredictable weather - and grizzly bears! This was a historic trek for prospectors in the Klondike gold rush. This guy documented it:
