- with impulsive enrollment in a graduate program with little or no apparent thought or research put into it
- with a genuine desire to make certain it will be a good investment of time, energy, and money
- with ‘not a clue’ as to what course of study to follow?
- who is a college student talking about changing their major from something without knowing just what they want to change it to?
- who is a high school junior or senior who you truly believe wants to attend college, yet is avoiding their college mail/visits because of their uncertainty about the course of study they would pursue?
- approaching retirement either with apprehension or uncertainty as to how they may wish to spend/invest their time?
- wanting to have more than a job or even career, but more a sense of focus, direction, meaning, purpose or mission in his or her life’s work?
