Getting into Hunter after making it to R2 gives you about a 15% chance of getting in since there are about 300 kids vying for 50 spots. Those are about the same odds if I remember correctly vs overall odds at Anderson or NEST. The difference here is that "all" you need for Anderson/NEST is a 99 on the G&T test and then it's down to the luck of the draw. Meanwhile Hunter R2 is based on something - primarily the two hour child interview - along with a host of other things, so luck has nothing or very little to with the outcome. Either way, best of luck to you. Signed Brearley/Hunter mom. [ Reply | More ]

I think it is reasonable to express an expectations that she will be able to schedule personal appointments outside of work hours - but I also think you should know it won't always be possible and you should be flexible if something comes up. Not all doctors have 9am appointments and even with a 9 or 9:30 appt time it could be difficult to get to you by 11, depending on doctors timeliness, nature of appt, etc. [ Reply | More ]

I am doing a reno now and don't quite understand the hate and contempt for pride in these details. I just had these amazing light switches put in--they are very unique and look fabulous and I think, "artistic." If I could draw I would have been an architect. Art & Architecture go hand in hand. And the nature of the space we inhabit and how it affects us and wanting it to be beautiful--why are these things worthy of contempt? [ Reply | More ]

you should realize that your child is not the ONLY one who will be there at that time so if this is indeed a life ending problem for you then it will likely be a life ending problem for most others as well. It's a leveled playing field. Can't please everyone. I am sure other time slots will also be a "major issue" for other families. Take a deep breadth and get off Urban Baby and go do something productive and useful and healthy with your time rather than obsess over such trivial and insignificant details. [ Reply | More ]

It can be tough hailing a cab across town at that time and they tend to do repairs on the 4-5 line around 1pm.

OK, I understand some R2 times are better or worse than others, and I am glad we got a slot during usual nap time rather than 8am (lesser evil), but get a grip people - no matter where our kids go to school next year, they will need to be able to function at 8am and at moon and during their nap times.

This is the best appetizer ever. Trust me: Get a bag of pitted dates. Mix up some cream cheese and parmesan cheese. Fry up some crisp bacon. Put a dollop of the cheese mix inside each date. Then place a small bacon slice vertically inside it. [ Reply | More ]

For elegant casual cocktail party, I always have a 2-3 lb block of smoked salmon/gravlax (surrounded by dills) next to a basket of sliced baguette baked crispy with olive oil. It's always the first dish to go. [ Reply | More ]

Easiest, best dip ever: a tub of whipped cream cheese, a can of boneless skinless salmon, and a bag of dried cranberries. [ Reply | More ]
