  1. Yeah!!! Congratulations to her! My son just got his official admission early decision to the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania! He will be rowing there. He got a near-full scholarship.

    Derek Owen calculus

    My son did his AP calc and tested in to Calc 2 at his engineering school. So, we obviously love his classes! And, my kids spend about an hour a day on his courses. Sometimes a bit more, sometimes a bit less. And, if you ever have a question for him, video message him! He'll send you a video back with a response.

    Class of 2016 check-in

    This seems so crazy to me! If my son needs to add something basic to his schooling that we somehow missed, I'd like to know sooner rather than later! My son has had a "pre-read" done on his application materials at a number of schools, but I don't believe any of them have contacted the NCAA for that information yet. I just want to make sure I haven't messed this up for him!

    Class of 2016 check-in

    I'm not sure if it's easier or not. Ds's ACT score was higher, percentage-wise, than the SAT on his first attempt. But, it could have been because the SAT was the first test he took and didn't know what to expect.

    Class of 2016 check-in

    We are in the same boat! My son is a rower and is just narrowing down his official visit list. Have you heard from the NCAA? I need to call and find out if his courses are considered acceptable. What a nightmare filling all of those out was! My son took the ACT, SAT (twice), and two subject tests and did very well. He's working on his college essays this summer so he won't have to do that and schoolwork. This is getting exciting!

    Peanuts on airplanes

    We fly Delta mostly. We take the same precautions as mentioned above. And, when we tell them, they don't serve peanuts on our flight. They are pretty great about it. We didn't fly for years because we weren't sure if his allergy was airborne or not. Now, we've flown a number of times and I'm confident his is only if he ingests peanuts.

    What popular food places do you not like?

    You all are just plain wrong about Trader Joes!!!! Blasphemy! :) I really don't like McDonald's, Burger King, or any of those fast food burger joints. I don't remember the last time I ate at one. (But, I do remember my first pregnancy CRAVING a Whopper at Burger King. Weird!!)

    Please Tell Me About Crew (Rowing Team)

    Should be good to go now! Try again.

    Please Tell Me About Crew (Rowing Team)

    My son rows for a club so there are no requirements about school. They have people from all the local schools on the team. And there are a couple homeschooled kids too! Club teams tend to be more competitive than school teams. (Not always the case, but usually true). In Michigan. They cannot participate in school sports unless they are at the school at least half days. So this was a sport we could do and homeschool.

    Please Tell Me About Crew (Rowing Team)

    Hikin mama!!! Where does your son go to college? And where did he row in high school? I ask because my son is going into his senior year and he's a rower. He's being recruited by a number of colleges and very excited about rowing in college! He currently rows for the Detroit Boat Club. Oh and all the rowers hate UW!!! My son and his teammates watched a lot of the races at Henley a couple weeks ago and always rooted against them! Lol To the OP. It is an amazing sport. So much fun to watch. My son cuttently works out three times a day- twice on the water with his teammates and he throws in another at home just for fun. Usually running or cycling. He mixes it up. It is an expensive sport and for us has involved a lot of travel. In fact, andrew is leaving right now for Club Nationals in Cincinnati! This sport has been the perfect fit for him!

    So impressed with Disneyland! For unexpected reasons!

    I'm so sorry to hear about your dad. But how wonderful of them to help make the best of a horrible situation. We had a similar experience on a Disney cruise years ago when our son needed emergency surgery and we were out at sea. Disney took care of us!!!!
  14. Skimmed everything. But, take a look at Kettering University. It's a coop school. So you go to school for three months (semester) and then work full time for three months. On and off. My son is a freshman there and is in chemical engineering. His coop really had him working as a chemical engineer and even sent him on a business trip! He earns enough to pay for school by himself (with a little loan and a lot of merit money). He will graduate with 2.5 years experience in the field. And, it's a great school.

    Speaking of Disney....a cruise or the park?

    I've done both and our family actually prefers the cruise vacations. They are just so much more relaxing! And, they love seeing other parts of the world and being adventurous at the ports, but being able to get back on the ship for nice meals. We've been on three cruise lines - Disney, Royal Caribbean, and Norwegian. Disney is ALL of our favorite (my kids are 18, 17, 14, and 9). The quality of service you receive is second to none. You have the same waiters every night, so you really get to know them and their families. The kids' clubs are fantastic. Character meets have WAY less time in line than at the parks - especially on the smaller ships (Magic and Wonder). Entertainment is wonderful. Everything from the shows to entertainment at dinner. They know how to keep the kids happy during the long dinners. The other cruise lines were fine. We had a great time on them. They just didn't have the same customer service as Disney. And, I felt a little nickel and dimed. Pool towels had to be checked out and you were fined $25 if you misplaced yours. (Disney doesn't do that) The other lines had WAY more options for paid food. I felt cheap asking if there was an upcharge for the first couple of days until I figured out what was included and what wasn't. (Disney has one or two upcharge restaurants, depending on which ship you are on.) And, in general, they anticipated our needs better. That said, you pay a lot more for Disney. But each time we did the other lines, we wish we were back on a Disney ship.
