    well uh... not really frustrated about anything about NYU. I'm still a freshmen at highschool. So you can see why everyone is such a ****** towards me. -.-

    Thanks for your PM. CC has blocked off your email carrier. I'd love to ask your advice about HS and summer program/research opportunities.

    I am new to CC and can't send a PM yet. Anyway, we'll be sending DD1 (8th grader) to Davidson Think summer institute this summer. She has been to CTY intensive studies last summer...what is your overall experience with Davidson ? Anything we need to pay attention to ? Thanks!!

    not sure if this will reach you....but i came across an old post of yours discussing a detailed college spreadsheet back in 2007. I have started one as well and thought i had my bases covered till i read about yours. Is there any way you would be willing to send me a copy. Whether an completed old version or a just a skeletal version. I would really appreciate it so i can get an idea of the direction to go in. My oldest is now a jr. thank you. If youre ok emailing send it to jalvarez489 at gmail . com...if this emailing is a violation...then I apologize but please do let me know an alternative.

    Thank you for the PM. (CC still doesn't let me reply). That's very helpful. I think my daughter will be in a similar situation for scores (based on PSAT) and grades and colleges. And our EFC story sounds comparable, or worse

    Good luck to your daughter. She has only great schools in the mix.

    I'm new to cc and so can't send a PM. I read your Reed thread with interest. My D is a junior and also planning to study physics. Her scores and GPA are good enough for Reed and UC, I believe. Of course the costs and aid are important considerations. If you don't mind, what was your EFC and how much aid did UC offer? Thanks. (pm me if you don't mind).

    Hi! Sorry this took so long to reply to; I missed the notification and just spotted it. Very funny about our matching daughters! Regarding internships, she applied for some in that area, but did not get accepted (Roswell Park Cancer Institute and the NIH summer institute). No go... so she did an engineering program instead. Regarding public health/epidemiology, she is still weighing it. Maybe double majoring in some kind of biology/biochem and statistics as an undergrad to prepare for some kind of grad school leading to epidemiology. But her pesky interests in Physics and art are getting in the way, so she is not completely committed to that plan. In fact, I suspect Physics may win out. The good news about the Bio and Stats majors is that there are a lot of good programs out there. Right now she is focusing on schools that have both good Bio and Physics, and just finished narrowing her list down this weekend. So we will see. Good luck, let me know if I can help.

    I was just reading an old post of yours (October 2010) regarding recommendations for UG programs and/or internships for your younger daughter who is interested in public health/epidemiology. When I read it to my daughter, she said "Mom, did you write that?" It sounds like your daughter might be a year ahead of mine (hs2015) and I was wondering if you could share any words of wisdom.

    As a bond lawyer, I agree with JHS -- her 1) is most likely. Also, since it's plural trusteeS, likely more than one bond issue. You should be able to see the amount still owed on the bonds in the liabilities section. If the city issued the bonds, the non profit actually has a loan with the city that should show as a liability, city has bond liability. If you have prior years' audits, and dollar value of deposits is similar, you can pretty much rule out JHS's (2) and (3)
