  1. I hate to hear you are feeling ill and had to cancel a fun activity. That the renovation for your dad is almost done is great news and it will be a big relief to have that done.
  2. It looks great and I’m glad it will be ready when your dad is.
  3. I would not notice a flag on clothes, because I have awful eyesight. So I never notice the details of someone’s clothing. I try not to judge someone I don’t know, so I would choose none of the above on the poll. I do have a confederate ancestor, who never owned slaves. He didn’t even live in the South, so I’m not sure why he was in the Confederate Army. He moved to New Jersey as a child from Ireland at end of potato famine. During the Civil War, he joined the confederate army. After the war, he returned to New Jersey, but he kept in touch with the men he served with.
  4. 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 $6,394 The way I read this, more freshmen at South Carolina receive merit scholarships, but the average freshman non-need award, $6,394, is almost exactly the same as the average freshman award at Wisconsin, $6,183. OP, merit aid can be unpredictable, unfortunately. (Also, every family has a different amount they are willing to/can pay for college.) remember she already has her dream And safety schools, so you are just looking for additional possibilities. Research the schools you think would be a good fit for your daughter and then look into merit aid opportunities at those schools. I agree with previous posters who say online calculators often don’t show merit scholarships. I have a distant cousin, who is the daughter of doctors, who is an OOS nursing student at the University of Tennessee, which has automatic merit scholarships. I looked it up on the simply college Site and it says the average ACT there is 27, so not much below the number it gave as a Target schools for your daughter. Here is their scholarship info: https://onestop.utk.edu/scholarships/entering-freshmen/
  5. 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 receive scholarships to Purdue, but they may be in-state. I have a weird memory for details. OP, good luck at finding schools that will be a good fit for your daughter.
  6. 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.
  7. 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 addition they have a performing arts scholarship, also good for 10 semesters, if your daughter is willing to minor in dance. (18 credit hours) I don’t know if the arts and academic scholarships stack, but it could be worth exploring. if the college websites don’t give enough details about merit scholarships check college confidential and Reddit to see if anyone gives details about them on there.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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 mentioned here as ones that accept by major, so the acceptance rate could be lower or higher for nursing students at those schools. I do know at least one school on the list as a direct admit into nursing school if you are looking for that. They are in random order as I couldn’t copy and paste. Rochester Stony Brook George Washington Florida Texas Pitt Clemson UConn Washington Purdue Wisconsin SUNY Binginham Ohio State UMass Amherst
  13. 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.
  14. “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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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 throughout 2021.
  18. 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.)
  19. I’m so glad that you were able to pull it off so quickly. I’m sorry that the reception will have to wait, but I know it will be worth the wait.
  20. This thread made me go back and look the pictures from our Memorial Day trip. It snowed on Memorial Day; I also have a pictures of my kids building snowmen and having a snowball fight at the hotel.
  21. I’m so sorry. Are her siblings available today?
  22. Praying that everyone is able to make it to your daughter’s wedding and that there is no lockdown.
  23. there are webcams that allow you to see live conditions. When we went, I was also able to see videos of the previous year. I can’t find that now in a quick search. Here are current pics https://www.weatherbug.com/traffic-cam/yellowstone-national-park-wy-82190 https://secretyellowstone.com/webcams/ https://www.seejh.com/webcams/yellowstone/
  24. Here is the planned road opening schedule for Yellowstone this year. 2021 Spring Opening Dates Roads will open at 8 am on the following dates (conditions permitting): April 16: West Entrance to Madison Junction, Mammoth Hot Springs to Old Faithful, Norris to Canyon Village. May 7: East Entrance to Lake Village (Sylvan Pass), Canyon Village to Lake Village. May 11: Cooke City to Chief Joseph Scenic Byway May 14: South Entrance to West Thumb, Lake Village to West Thumb, West Thumb to Old Faithful (Craig Pass). May 28: Beartooth Highway
  25. I forgot who mentioned going in early May, but the whole “loop” will not be open at that time. We went late May one year and not all areas of the park were open even though they had less snow than normal that year. we still had a great time, but we couldn’t visit parts of the park. To OP, do try to go to both Grand Tetons and Yellowstone. They are completely different even though they are close together. I think GP is pretttier while Yellowstone is more unusual.
