Two thoughts (from a DH, if that matters: 1. Don't you have equal authority to buy a wardrobe and a Hawaii vacation? Not sure why he's in charge of deciding if you get these things. 2. As for your actual question, depends whose idea it is for you to lose weight. If you've said you really want to, then that's great. Otherwise, ick. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] what is the big deal with all these schools requiring FC letters? Surely the administration of this is more hassle than simply sending out letters to those you want, then when some come back and say "thanks anyway, we got in elsewhere", you send it out to people on the waitlist. If these schools are so good, they should have no problems clearing their wait lists, rather than messing around with "well, if this, then that, I love you, you are the bestest in the whole world" etc.. 2 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I actually kind of get it. All of these schools are small, so they can't overaccept by much. It's one thing to rely on percentage yield when you are talking about 1,000 people but for a 50 person class, it's difficult. And you don't want to accept 50 kids exactly for a 50 person class and have a 100 person waitlist - if you accept people who won't say yes, and WL those who would, you risk losing some of the people you WL'd who won't stay on WL.

In a car in my prescience, I explain my rules of conduct. I do it nicely, calmly but I say things like, I don't allow that kind of language (cursing), we don't stand by and let comments/jokes (racist) pass. Ladies, I'm not going to tolerate gossip or unkindness. You get the idea [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Hunter R2 moms, our PSD had asked us to send her in writing that even if my DD is admitted to Hunter, she would not go and she would go to the first choice school of independent schools. We could not write such things, since there may be 5% of chance to Hunter. PSD indicated that there may be no admissions even though there is a lot of interest. Have you been asked by your PSD to do so? 11 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Honestly, this is the same to committing to any first choice school since odds are low everywhere. It's creepy she wants you to commit to her in writing, but I'm sure it's because she needs to be able to tell FC school that you are committed regardless of having made R2 at Hunter. It sucks, but she (or the FC school) feel they have been burned in the past. [ Reply | More ]
