  1. I read that as confirmation that Wisconsin gives merit scholarships. You have said your daughter went to South Carolina with generous merit aid. This is the common data set from South Carolina. Number of students in line a who had no financial need and who were awarded institutional non-need-based scholarship or grant aid (exclude those who were awarded athletic awards and tuition benefits) 2,489 9,638 216 o) Average dollar amount of institutional non-need-based scholarship and grant aid awarded to students in line n
  2. Yes, Wisconsin. I went back and checked and a poster wrote about her student getting merit aid to Wisconsin in 2019. (I happen to know another 2019 grad who also went OOS to Wisconsin and received merit aid, but I don’t know the details of how much.) In searching to double check my facts, I discovered TWTM grads also received merit scholarships to Stony Brook, UConn, UMass Amherst. It didn’t sound like folks were impressed by the amount of the merit offered by UConn and UMass. Someone did get full tuition to Stony Brook. I also know someone on this board has had students re
  3. Congratulations. when you make it into a romantic comedy movie, maybe the bank lawyer and seller lawyer can fall in love after being adversaries at the start of the movie. Or, maybe you can age your kids and your daughter & the neighbor kid fall in love, which makes the shared driveway agreement work. Seriously, I’m very happy that you will have a new, perfect house soon.
  4. I know at least 5 of those schools give merit scholarships from lurking on this site for years and from having friends with college age kids. Pitt, Clemson, Purdue, Wisconsin and Ohio State. I also have read about folks here receiving money from Rochester, but I’ve also seen mention of 2nd year awards being less. I picked George Washington University to search for merit aid since your daughter is applying for another school in same area. It looks like they have some, but I couldn’t see numbers or requirements. The good news is the scholarships are good for 10 semesters. in
  5. Speaking of zombie threads…. Is this the son heading off to college this fall with a full ride? if so, sounds like he did well no matter how the audition went.
  6. Is the back of others card different than ours. (It is actually in English and Spanish.) Both doses are listed on front card with date and manufacturer/lot number. This is a picture of the back.
  7. Your home looks great. I’m glad you will have the kids for more than weekends as I think that will help the kids become comfortable in the new home. (I hope the guardian ad listen/court gets a clue and sees the truth of your situation and does what it can to rectify the situation.) You have come a long way. The Hive is proud of you and is here for you.
  8. What is on the back of the vaccine cards that everyone is taking pictures/making copies of the back of the card? There is nothing on the back of our cards, except a Spanish version of the English side, which is the side that was filled out when we received our shots.
  9. When I read your post, I was somewhere tonight waiting on a kid. I’ve never really given much thought to target schools and tried a search using those words and your daughter’s act score. One thing that came up was a website called simply college and it had a large set of colleges with an average ACT score of 29 or above. (No idea why it used that number) It allowed me select a major. I then sorted by selectivity. Here are the schools it listed with a nursing major with more than 7,000 students that accept more than 30 percent of applicants. I recognized some as schools mentione
  10. I was responding to a quote that said we don’t know how she interacts with her patients, which is true. However, I believe words are important and I can’t imagine trusting the judgment of a counselor who spoke, in public or behind closed doors, that way about a group of people, any group of people. Do you have more of the quote to show the correct context? Im having trouble imagining any context that would make that an acceptable statement.
  11. “This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil. (Time stamp: 6:45” If she says this in a public lecture at a university, I don’t think she is the best counselor for white patients.
  12. I had a childless great aunt who lived to 100 lived independently until her mid to late 80s. Then it became obvious she wasn’t doing well. My dad, who was the only child of her only sister, had power of attorney and what not, and he moved her into an assisted living facility closer to him pretty much against her will. It worked because it was obvious she could not live by herself. He sold her home and car.
  13. I’m not sure I agree with the premise that the US is overproducing PHDs, but I agree one can find High caliber researchers, including those who graduated from Ivy leave and equivalent schools, in non-ultrA-selective public and private universities and colleges.
  14. I’m so glad this is all working out for you and your daughter. Staying on-site will also mean you can use Disney transportation from the airport to your hotel. Disney’s Magical Express Service provides transportation for Disney Resort hotel Guests between Orlando International Airport and their Disney Resort hotel via motorcoach. Reservations are required to use this service. Disney’s Magical Express service will no longer be offered starting with arrivals January 1, 2022. The service will continue to operate for new and existing reservations made at Disney Resort hotels for arrivals
  15. I don’t know anything about that program. I have an acquaintance whose son planned to do this program. https://international.fsu.edu/FYA.aspx (Our paths no longer cross, so I can’t tell you how it went.)
