  1. It's true. Big topic of discussion on the parent pages today
  2. I think it is so hard to tell if online reviews are accurate or not. Is the liberal arts school Hendrix? Do you know what the housing situation would be there?
  3. Oh interesting. Truly, every one of these schools has gone in a unique direction. Your son is a citizen, correct? So no worries about deportation? There are Princeton students talking about getting apartments off campus, which has caused quite the uproar in the Facebook parent group. The school is strictly limiting access to campus to those authorized to be there, so the benefit of being in town does seem questionable for most domestic students. There are worries about off campus socializing, of course.
  4. I think it could happen. The schools are taking such a huge financial hit that I'm sure any opportunity to increase revenue would be welcomed.
  5. It was in a recent update. It's on my phone now, under "Privacy" and "Health". You have to turn it on, and I believe you have to have another app that works with it. It's called "Covid-19 Exposure Logging"
  6. Princeton announced today too. Freshmen/juniors on campus in fall, sophs/seniors in spring. Mostly online instruction with 10% discount in tuition. Single sleeping spaces. Mask use/regular testing. Everyone leaves campus just before Thanksgiving until spring semester.
  7. My husband used to trap prairie dogs in AZ as part of his job to test for plague. the fleas on the rodents are the issue.
  8. It's been interesting to see that each Ivy/MIT/Stanford has taken a unique path. I did expect that would follow each other more closely.
  9. Princeton announced today: freshmen and juniors on campus for fall, sophomores and seniors on campus for spring. Some exceptions to include certain leaders and those with housing insecurity. Most classes online, 10% discount on tuition. Private rooms, masks, strict limits on socializing. Regular testing with separation for quarantine. Students will leave campus before Thanksgiving.
  10. FWIW, my STEM daughter did online biology during high school. It was fine. My daughter took the AP exam to validate her score because she was STEM, but I personally would not worry about that in your case. The colleges are going to be seeing all sorts of things in the next few application cycles.
  11. Yes, I'm familiar with the large cities in Canada. Have been to one of them. Not doubting the stats. I read too 🙂
  12. Alaska has very low case counts too. Granted, there are not the large cities that you find in parts of Canada. But there may be similar factors at play.
  13. We do add our new drivers as authorized users. Makes it much easier to purchase gas. They stay on there through college.
  14. Congratulations on her graduation. Yes, the transition can be so difficult for many, even in the best of times. And all the uncertainty now compounds everything. So she is attending grad school in the fall then?
