[ - ] I am Jewish, but livid over this. Metropolitan Country Club, a predominantly Jewish country club, set off fireworks on Memorial Day. This is a somber day, to celebrate those who gave their lives for our country. Fireworks are not appropriate. This would be like setting off fireworks on the High Holidays. They expect the US military to support Israel, yet they shit all over the military. They are located in a predominantly minority area, so yes, many of the families have lost relatives in war, and now have to listen to Jews set off fireworks. What is wrong with these people? 10 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I just find it odd because it's pretty normal to have one's cycle be a little off for a bit after having a baby, a miscarriage, etc. If this had been going on for a long time that might be different, but a few wonky cycles is pretty standard for after a pregnancy ends. [ Reply | More ]

well, for starters i have to say we have a shy 4 year old. i think he felt the place was too big and crowded. the class was pretty small, i think like 6 people but the teachers weren't able to engage him so he didn't really participate. so, then what happened is that they just went thru the motions with him. the class was pretty short also. we asked for a partial refund. we have never done that with all of his events/stuff. he likes the pool at our house so it's not like he's afraid of the water.

We did this this past year, applying out of a private as well. It was very hard to do the prep and all the interviews during school, and my DC's grades did suffer slightly. However, in my experience, there's not a way around it. The math work your DC will be doing in algebra in the 8th grade is essential for the ISEE, and taking the test earlier will entail a trade off that might affect the test score. So it's a bit of a trade off. Good luck! [ Reply | More ]

And yes, you need a tutor for the SHSAT. For the ISEE, it's more dependent on your kid. Get the books and have him do the tests times and grade them. You can get a sense from that. Also think about the SSAT as well. You can submit either score, but you can take the SSAT more than once. [ Reply | More ]
