#4: Getting In

This episode of Midway is about the Great American College Application Process, the parents' edition. When your kid applies to college, it can feel like the end of your child rearing, the last time they'll ever need your help, the final verdict on how well you've done as a parent. It stirs up a lot of emotions. So this is the story of my son Miro applying to college, but it's also the parallel story of my own, sometimes frantic, quest to figure out what I'm going to do as an empty nester.
