[ - ] Am so bummed, just started having night sweats and was diagnosed with dry eye. In my early 40's and even though I don't want to have any more children, I'm just so sad about potentially being in perimenopause (if that's the proper term). My oldest is 10. Is anyone else experiencing this? 7 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Thanks. You might have noticed it if the bottle was dusty from sitting in the medicine cabinet for so long! That's why I wondered about it.

I have a hard time being supportive of her, since she complains about him (the medical expenses or household expenses, since he cannot help out). She also says what he put her through! I never here her say she loves him and is so relieved he's alive. Obviously, its all very sad, but I also want to shake her. I feel so bad for him. 26 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

you know, affirmative action policies are different depending on the institution and the state. some do recruit lower scores from the "diverse", but others don't. affirmative action in many circles means for example to stop the racist practice of only advertising in magazines and other media that are known to be primarily read by white people and extend recruiting campaigns into non-traditional target areas. if you want to know whether "diverse" kids are being recruited with lower ERBs, find out the affirmative action policy at that private. that is the only way to know.

OP here; it's interesting that you all assume diversity = visible diversity. In most schools I toured, diversity meant anything but visible (didn't really see it).

The diversity kids with lower ERBs do not get placed. Early Steps, a group that helps diverse families with the application process for K placed fewer than 40% of the kids they worked with this past year. Because the competition is so stiff and most schools really only want a few diverse kids, the competition for the diverse spots is super stiff. [ Reply | More ]

Not sure I understand your response. True that Early Steps works mainly to increase racial diversity (black, hispanic, Asian), but whether or not a family and/or DC is visibly diverse is not a factor. My very light skinned hispanic DC (not visibly diverse) fared well in the process (very high ERBs though). [ Reply | More ]
