OOOHHHH! I've heard very good things about both schools, but given their choice of schools, I think the general consensus would be to go with ps 101. Nevertheless, if you were inclined to buy instead of rent, I've heard good things about 144 as well. [ Reply | More ]

^^^ EM does NOT use calculators for every little thing. It does NOT ignore calculation speed and accuracy.

Are you still on? You should seriously consider hiring a doula. Your chances of vbac go up significantly if you labor at home as long as possible. BTDT (at Cornell last week).
