  • He's CV lists him as an adjunct professor.
  • According to the Yale Daily News, Yalies drink more than the average college student. Ivies tighten alcohol policies | Yale Daily News And, according to the Brown Daily Herald, so do Brown students...though 20% of Brunonians don't drink at all. …
  • As someone who is somewhat familiar with both schools, I don't think Yale and Brown are "totally different." Socially, I think they are somewhat similar. I think they are more like each other than, e.g., they are like Duke or Stanford. Unofficial…
  • My mom used a wheelchair at airports even though she could walk. The reason was that she couldn't hear. Hearing aids don't work that well when there's a lot of background noise. So, she couldn't hear things like gate announcements. She'd get totally…
  • Changing universities won't change the underlying issue that you can't be a straight-A student, cheerleader, actress, AND social butterfly, all while working, too. She's doing it now. There's no reason to think she can't keep doing it. There …
  • Suggesting someone major in elementary ed for the job prospects is bad advice, IMO. It's hard to get a job in that field in a lot of areas of the country. Some of the few jobs available require other skills, such as fluency in certain foreign langua…

  • In other words, deceive his in-laws? I don't think that's a good plan. Further up, someone said it was none of our business why grandparents favor D1. He doesn't have to tell us. I just think that the reasons why they favor D1 matter in determini…
  • I agree with CF and others. They offered to split the cost for D1 with me 50/50 (whoopedy doo - they could easily write a check for a 4-year Ivy education without even putting a dent in their bank account). The OP sounds really obnoxious …
  • I disagree with some of the other posters. For grad school, LORs are very important. Someone like your son, who takes more difficult courses, may end up with better LORs. And taking hard courses ought to pay off in terms of GRE scores. If he were…
  • Whether a Catholic can marry a twice-divorced man depends on the circumstances. It's usually the first marriage that counts . However, that isn't always the case, especially if the other person is Catholic and didn't marry in the Church the first ti…
  • My understanding is that the Catholic Church, for example, won't recognize the marriage of a Catholic to someone who has not at least been baptized a Christian. Not true. The form of the ceremony has to be a bit different, but there are certa…
  • I suspect the school is Yale rather than Princeton. Yale has sororities. They've been more popular in the past few years than they used to be, but members are decidedly in a minority and, frankly, a lot of Yalies write off anyone who goes near th…
  • Is Ocean black and about 30 now? (I didn't say African-American because her parents were from the West Indies.) If not, well, there are at least 2 of them. My D knew a girl named Harmony Button. Her high school English teacher wrote a novel and n…

  • If given on the same day throughout the world, you minimize the chances of collusion Anyone remember the scandal involving Chinese cheating on the SAT a number of years back? They had "professional" test takers taking the exam in the US. They…
  • I don't understand the "adoption' bit at 32.... However, I thought that having Michelle Knight go live with the DeJesus family was in the works when I heard the family members speak. I think it was the aunt who said that the girls had made a fami…
  • Assuming you are male, you're golden.
  • I disagree. If you were working at a job, i'd agree with Demosthenes. But only take 8 credit hours so you can participate in ECs? Nope, I don't think that will fly.
  • I live in NYC. Our neighborhood has a great community theatre. It has children's and teen's acting classes and performances. Our kids do theatre the way other kids do Little League or Youth soccer. The teachers for the program are professionals w…

  • I went to lots of different schools. Some schools gave us IQ tests. My offspring had them to get into a gifted & talented program.
