Have her wait to retake it either last sitting in June or first sitting in September or October, as long as she preps mightily for the fall test. Most schools will superscore. There is possible curriculum topics she hasn't covered yet. Has she looked at Questbridge, Posse and other foundations that help women and minorities with applications and mentorship through HS? That's a very good score - 99th percentile. She is in a very good position, but she needs to take the Math 2 subject test and possibly a Math AP test, which will only be given in May.

My younger brother and I have about the same age difference (ours is slightly smaller), and we used to fight terribly. By the time we were both teens, we had become each others' best friend. As adults, we're still best friends, and we at least exchange text messages every day despite the geographic distance that often separates us. We send each other a 'song of the day' email almost every day. [ Reply | More ]

I would suggest reducing some of the drama on your end. You have to steel yourself to it almost like you are immune but at the same time communicate that it's unacceptable. They need to be involved with coming up with a solution and consequences when it happens. Get super tough on them but do not let them know it gets to you. Imagine the best CEO ever. Would they be hurt and upset by fighting amongst employees? No, they would take decisive action and not lose any sleep over it. [ Reply | More ]

I'm sorry. My kids are the same ages. When I have a bad day, I try to remember what it was like when they were smaller and things were even more chaotic and they needed to be constantly monitored. You might want to consider giving them more time apart-playdates and activites with individual friends as well as their own zones within your living space--with consequences for bothering each other when they are in their own space. I find mine always get along better when they get a break from each other. [ Reply | More ]

Then on day 2-3 and sometimes 4, I can do some dry shampoo, repeat running the dryer over it and still look very presentable. [ Reply | More ]

these days oribe. 2-3 spays of "royal blowout heat styling spray" one bottle lasts a very long time. then blow dry. Then when I'm doneish I put either supershine light moisturizing cream or creme for style on the ends to give a little definition. I have them both in the house from before keratin, but I'll probably only replace one when I'm done the tubes. THeir dry shampoo (not "Dry" but "gold lust dry shampoo") is fantastic, the only one that has ever worked for me but goes faster than I would like, but it pays for itself in the amount of time I save in the am. Then on day 3 or 4, I use "dry" to give some body/texture to the roots. It's super fast and I am saving 20 or more min in the am. [ Reply | More ]

Yes. With a keratin, you only need to wash a few x per week. Your hair will dry about 50% faster, and look much tamer than the frizzy mess it is right now. It gets rid of frizz and adds shine. [ Reply | More ]

It's none of my business, but my impression would be that she's distracting herself from some type of unhappiness at home. People usually do what they want to do- which means she would rather spend nights out with her friends than spend time with her kids or put them to bed and be with DH. But then again, she's home four other nights and maybe her DH works late often, or maybe her children are super young and don't really miss her being there. Lots of variables. [ Reply | More ]

OP: my mean lizard brain is getting so much joy out of the idea of just asking for her keys tomorrow and telling her I never want to see her again. It's completely irrational; I just resent her for being able to spend time with DCs when I can't. [ Reply | More ]

Wow you're a dumb bitch. Take comfort in the fact that she doesn't give a shit about Your kids and they're just a job easily replaced. Maybe stay home and raise your own kids. [ Reply | More ]

Yes, lots of great schools are out there, with their greatness not always corresponding to the so-called "Tiers." [ Reply | More ]

Why, my dear, your school is TT because your amazing precocious genius DC goes there! They are basically Mozart and Lena Dunham rolled into a single attractive, well-groomed, fascinating, radiant child. Didn't you know applications went through the roof the day after you accepted? [ Reply | More ]

I went to one, my son goes to another and I'm still yet to meet a TT parent who needed validation based on his/her kid's school. [ Reply | More ]

Many posters here are obviously in desperate need of validation. [ Reply | More ]

Possibly so. I've met the very rich and the normal kind of parent. They have insecurities and seek validation (status symbols, possessions, brags) but not about their child's school. OR [ Reply | More ]

Exactly- OR, do you think it's BWL or Leman parents who are on here saying there is no way there are 7 TT schools? [ Reply | More ]

Right, because validation is a common topic in face-to-face school hallway conversations. [ Reply | More ]
