At least for dress pants, I've had amazingly good luck at my local Goodwill. I think every pair I own came from there and are of very high quality. My Goodwill sorts everything by gender, style, fabric, size, and color, so it makes shopping very easy and you can try on so many different brands. I also tend to dress fairly casual most of the time, so don't really want to invest lots of money in dress clothes.

I think it's somewhere on the 2017 acceptances thread...

 

"I" actually don't mind having him (home) for another year (being totally selfish)... but I definitely feel for him and feel frustrated at the advisers his school provided.   :glare:   He's found some good allies out of it all from friends and doctors he's shadowed, etc, so not all is bad.  It's just super, super annoying.

 

 

I liked this post b/c you will enjoy having home another year, but boo hiss wrt this situation! If it's one thing I can't stand it's injustice.  :banghead: (I looked it up on the acceptance thread.)

 

And here I was upset that my dd took a huge hit financially and time-wise this semester b/c her paperwork was lost by a state agency. She was re-assigned to this bad location and within days they found her paperwork. Yet, she could not get put back in her first placement. Speaking of your ds and my dd, too bad I retired from mentioning her to available young men. Your son is a real catch! (So is my dd. ;))

 

You have a great attitude and forgive more easily than I do. That's not to my credit, but that's how it is.

Your dd's situation is really annoying too.  It's amazing just how frustrating life can be.  One can't help but mutter, "why in the world???"

 

I'm definitely still growling at what happened to my guy and blame myself a bit for letting the guidance counselor ball drop, but the end result is what it is and one has to move on - at least very grateful for the helpful folks in his life doing what they can.  I will have to bite my tongue hard should anyone ask me about his plans for next year while at his school.  No matter what, I can't get anyone angry there who could do damage for next year.  He still needs a good letter of recommendation from the school.  As mad as I am that they are employing worthless advisers... I must hold it in.  Hopefully no one will ask.  That will make it far easier.
