For college-bound high school seniors and their parents, December begins the season of decisions. Most applications are due by Dec. 31, and if you've applied early, the results are starting to come.  Now that the admissions departments have spoken, it's time to decide which college is the best fit.

On Monday's Up to Date, Wes Crenshaw joins us to discuss why students often make their college decisions with too much emotion and without enough forethought.

Guests:

  • Wes Crenshaw, psychologist
  • Katie Guyot, sophomore at Kenyon College in Ohio
  • Kyra Haas, senior at Lawrence Free State High School
