[ - ] Preschool Q: How exactly do the schools help you with exmissions? Does it mean that the preschool director does all the calling for you? Do you really have a better chance of getting in somewhere if the school doesn't help you all that much? Because it depends on the child and the family.... 1 Reply [ Reply | Watch | More ]

at our ps we came up with a list of k schools in the summer, reviewed it with psd, then applied. In Dec. after all the interviews and playgroups we gave psd our preferences, fc, top 3, etc. In Jan. she started to get feedback from k's and also advocated for us. As it got down to the wire she got more concrete feedback and we had a pretty good idea of where we stood before letters came out, though there are some k's who will not give any feedback to anyone. If you don't have this help you can still get in but obviously you're flying a little more blind. Also some psd will be more aggressive in brokering and directing dc's toward certain k's but ours was not like that and we're glad [ Reply | More ]

I completely disagree and fwiw, I prefer Trevor. The families at Trevor are lovely--warm, accomplished, smart with a quiet intellectual bent and unpretentious. If you can, get a copy of the Board of Trutess profile -- you will be very impressed. We are zoned for PS 6 - there are 29 children in a class--compared to Trevor - 14-15 in a class-far more indiv attn. There are far fewer differences among privates, esp in the lower grades, than between any one private and public. And don't listen to UP hype about tiers and ranking. It's based on college admissions. Caliber of entering classes much different than graduating classes. Every single private sends students to HYP and other tt colleges. [ Reply | More ]

You can actually apply anew to certain schools now for Sept. Call schools you didn't apply to but in retrospect may want to go to. See if they will take your appl for consideration if spots open up betw now and Sept. Also, some, like Claremont and Steiner may have spots still. Look, these may not be your first choice but you are only committing for one year to whatever school you choose and you can reapply everywhere you wish all over again in the fall. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] 5% of $3MM is a lot more to be paying in taxes especially when your yearly income has taken a huge hit... if these taxes keep increasing the upper middle class (yes, unfortunately, that's what we are at that salary range) will be forced to leave the city.

Just telling it like it is. Would you give 67% of your salary to taxes??? I don't think so, so why should we? I am happy to pay taxes but over half our salary?? How is this ok for anyone?? [ Reply | More ]

No one is paying 67% of their salary in taxes, and if you are, you should fire your accountant immediately. We make more than that and our total effective tax rate is only 45%. [ Reply | More ]

Sorry, $3mm isn't umc in nyc. I used to make $1.5mm and even I realize that is "rich". You may not feel rich compared to billionaires, but you are compared to everyone "normal", even in nyc [ Reply | More ]
