Are you the pro-Success Academy parent who keeps posting the fake anti-SA posts? The REAL parents who don't like Success Academy actually offer reasons why and facts. They don't just post things like "I hate you". Those sound fake. [ Reply | More ]

^^OP: As someone who worked for a non-profit, we are ALWAYS subject to oversight by the people who gave us funding. We weren't allowed to say "no" and keep the funding. If a funder wanted to audit us, we would snap to it because we knew we were doing everything properly and were happy to open our practices to review if they wanted us to do so. [ Reply | More ]

We moved to another City from NYC, and the bar section for my practice area has a monthly breakfast with CLE. I started going to them when I moved to town, met people, went to coffees/lunches here and there. Let everyone know I was looking but didn't pass out resumes or anything like that - I got little professional calling cards made up though to give out. A firm in town (my current firm) was looking to hire someone and my name got passed along from one of the people I had met. It was about 4 months after I had started networking through this, not bad.

Learning to take quizzes and tests is a skill though. On a quiz with only 10 questions and you get 2 wrong, that's an 80... 3 wrong a 70 (you get the idea).

The responses were "oh, don't worry. He's European, this is normal".
