[ - ] So this is for the moms applying to preschools. Just came from lunch with five close friends, all of them are natives and not a single one put their dcs in a popular or TT preschool. All of them were considered legacies or alums at the so-called TT preschools but they sent to neighborhood schools. All of those dcs are now in TT private. Why? They said that not going to a known school made their dc more appealing. Take it for its worth but I find it interesting. Good luck! 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

BTDT mom and ITA. It is very hard for a family with the first child going through a TT preschool to do well getting into a TT ongoing as there are always many siblings and legacies in the class. [ Reply | More ]

the question is, are they legacies at ongoing schools? If so, no advantage to a "tt" preschool at all. [ Reply | More ]

that's their theory, though. Nobody knows what exactly it takes to get your child into whatever ongoing you prefer. Not going to a "TT" preschool might or might not work. [ Reply | More ]

ITA. Only go to a TT preschool if you truly like it more than a preschool that is convenient. Don't choose it because of exmissions because no one really know how it will go. It depends on the year, the child, your relationship to the school, etc., none of which you can predict or control. [ Reply | More ]

Cancer risk is not clear. Emphysema is also probably dose-dependent, and also dependent on your genetic risk towards having this, but female smokers are probably more susceptible to this than male smokers are. However, studies definitely show that smoking as little as 1-2 cigarettes per day doubles your risk of having a heart attack. Not as relevant when younger, but starts to matter when you hit your 50s, if you are unable to stop. [ Reply | More ]
