Of course it's a possibility, albeit slim, as the school has an extremely strong sibling preference. When we toured it, we asked the admissions person how many seats would be available, and she refused to say until practically everyone in the room started pressing her. Exactly one (1) spot, and she didn't tell us until after the entire tour. [ Reply | More ]

We toured it and really liked it. Nice kids, nice families. Has an unassuming vibe but there are some high powered type parents there. Not TT according to UB (a criteria which I dont prescribe to personally) but the kids go onto great high schools. DS was waitlisted. You should definitely check it out for your child, but know that if you really want it then you have to voice that from the beginning to the DOA. [ Reply | More ]

we really liked it. obviously the only issue is that there are more academically challenging schools with much better college matriculation. that's it. so as a result, most families that get into a "better" school, choose that school. But Trevor is great. We felt the same way about Browning, and I am not trying to diss Browning. We loved it. Had ds not gotten into a school we deemed tt that we also liked, we would have happily sent him there. It's all about value on your investment (and I'm NOT a finance person), but if we are spending $45k+ per kid over 13 years, we want whatever we deem to be the best our money can buy. [ Reply | More ]

Just a point of clarifications, as a trevor parent, the school has only had a HS since the 1990s and the reputation for college emissions is based on really old and outdated ideas of what Trevor offers, in the last few years college admission has been very good, and you need to remember that the class is very small compared to Dalton and Riverdale, fewer than 60 kids. They have kids going to every Ivy, including Princeton, which I think is the holy grail, but I have not seen MIT or Stanford. I know everyone wants TT, honestly, I did too, but I found that this school is great for really smart kids who are self starters, if you want to be a big fish, it could work for you. To me, it has been worth the money and I think, so many years in now, I understand so much more about private schools and what they offer and I can't say we would have been better off at TT, not at all.

Would it have ruined your career/education/whatever to have had a baby and not have to raise it? I feel this is option is so overlooked these days. It's always, "Should I keep it or should I abort?"

+1,000. My brother and his wife put a baby up for adoption when they were both college freshman and had been dating just a few months. She was Catholic and wouldn't consider an abortion. They did end up together again after college and eventually married. Now at 46 they say it was the biggest mistake they ever made, because living all of these years knowing they have a child out there somewhere has taken an enormous emotional toll on them both. In other words, you're an idiot and have no clue what you're talking about. [ Reply | More ]

They've always known where the child is and would make tapes and videos to send her when she was 18, which her adoptive parents were 100% on board with. They told their three children they had about their sister as soon as they were old enough to understand. Her 18th birthday came, they sent The box off, her adoptive parents explained to her what it was and who it was from. A week later it was returned to them unopened. Her adoptive parents felt awful, but understandably weren't going to force her to open it. They never heard from her again. [ Reply | More ]

That sounds fishy to me. If the adoptive parents were on board with contact, why did they have to wait until she was a legal adult? Usually that's the age when kids can access adoption records without parental consent. I wonder if there was more to it on the adoptive parents side. [ Reply | More ]

Not an option if you already have kids. If you feel like having another kid would ruin your family's lives, you abort, happens all the time, BC can fail and abortion is a way to keep your family size manageable. If you go forward with PG, once the baby is born, he/she is born into your family, it's your baby and you cannot look at it any other way. I cannot fathom giving away my baby, if I already have others and this baby deserves as much as his/her older siblings. When you are early in 1st trimester, it's just a probability that there will even be a baby, often a very small probability given high rates of MC and if you also have other issues. I don't know how you could even compare aborting something that has high chances of MC and doesn't even have a heartbeat yet and giving away a real baby, born into your family, who you had carried for 9 months.

By the time you know you're pregnant, your chance of miscarriage is not that high. By the time you have an abortion (particularly young women, who are most likely to have them) it's even lower. I don't understand people who say they could never give a baby up for adoption but have no problem with abortion. [ Reply | More ]

Because it's a live baby you hold in your arms, not a probability of being a healthy baby. And if you are already a mother, you will never give away your child. It's the same thing as giving up your older child for adoption to make space for a new baby, get it? You form attachment, it's natural and hormonal, even single women find it extremely hard to give away their baby, not to mention mothers with multiple kids. And as far as MC is concerned, are you the OBGYN, an expert on that? Many of us had MCs, some multiple ones. Most women, who don't want the baby would abort very very early before week 7, when chances of MC are extremely high, there are medical abortions (pills) that work as early as 4-5 weeks.

By the time you know you are pregnant? You miss your period and take a test, it's that simple, or you can even take an early test before your missed period and know you are pregnant. At missed period you are only at 4 weeks gestational, most times there is even nothing to see at all on the ultrasound and you often cannot even get an abortion pill, because the doctors cannot confirm whether the pg is really there where it's supposed to be. Risk of MC is highest up to 10 weeks of gestation. Education is good for you. [ Reply | More ]

God is an entity that spawns space/time continuum, for god the future has already happened, future and past is all one. So, if god welcomes you before you emerge from the womb, it is so because god knows that you are actually born. It gets a bit more complicated in a multiverse. If god spawns the multiverse then it could be alternate realities where you are aborted and where you are born. So if god welcomes aborted embryos, then it must be at least one universe in the multiverse, where they are born. [ Reply | More ]

I got pregnant late senior year, but you couldn't tell I was pregnant. I didn't feel right aborting, so I deferred my college until the spring semester after I had the baby and my mother found a good family that couldn't have a child to give the baby to. She is better off and doing well. I see pictures of her occasionally. She is in so many activities & does well in school.

My ds goes there and I would say the academics are top notch.
