[ - ] DD applying to top tier private high schools (HM, Trinity, etc.). Two questions. First, she took the SSAT. What scores are considered reasonable for a shot at those schools (assuming very good grades etc.)? Second, is it expected or helpful to send a first choice letter? Thanks! 3 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Someone was posting earlier that the overall percentile rank for the SSAT should be no lower than 95% and none of the individual sections should be lower than 85%. I don't think private schools are quite as concerned with their yield at the high school level the way they are for K admissions, so I don't think the FC letter is as huge a deal as it would be if dc were 4yo. But it can't hurt. [ Reply | More ]

I wonder too. If he has any heart or soul he will have to come to terms with the fact that he shot 12 bullets at a man who had no weapon and was only flesh and blood. The fact that the grand jury let him off -- that helps him in society but may not help his psyche. Not facing any judgment for taking another life is not an easy path, I imagine. I am furious and disgusted by the Missouri political/legal apparatus, but I don't think they did Wilson a service by letting him go. [ Reply | More ]

Ask if they will send dedicated movers or if the trucks are owned by individuals who are in charge of hiring their own help. We moved once with Mayflower, which was the latter, and it was a NIGHTMARE. The guy ended up asking dh to drive him through the barrio so they could pick up a guy off the corner to help (he'd told dh they were visiting the "employment agency") and it got worse from there.
