  1. I've passed on your comments to her! Unfortunately, she's not certain what she wants to study. From casual conversations when she's visiting, I think she's leaning toward something such as political science. She's one of those teens pulled in different directions. Sorry for not responding sooner - I work weekends; yesterday was long and miserable!
  2. Thank you all! I'll pass along the other schools as well. The teen interested in moving isn't getting good information from her public school teachers and counselors about different options - large school with overwhelmed counselors. She can live with a family member if she goes to college in the broader KC area or if she got a good enough financial aid package, she could live on campus. She likes the idea of a smaller school where she could stand out better. She's concerned about being "invisible" attending a really large university. Her parents are concerned that a degree from William Jewell might not have the return on investment since the total cost is quite high. Of course, is she got a good financial aid package, that would be different.. The Kansas City area sounds really nice - except for all the tornadoes! Does anyone have an opinion on the value of a degree from a school such as William Jewell?
  3. Does anyone have first hand information about William Jewell liberal arts college near Kansas City? I know some one who wants to move to this area and might be interested in applying there. Also while I'm asking, what about the University of Missouri at Kansas City?
  4. We print mostly in black & white, but there have been several times when color was needed. My budget is tight and I thought I had included in it stuff that was likely to need to be replaced this year. Missed the printer, though. Frustrating! Since I wasn't thinking about budgeting for a printer, I haven't thought about a price range for its replacement. Lower cost overall is better. Printer ink can be so expensive. I don't what to skimp on the printer price but face high ink costs. In other words, I'm a bit lost and wasn't expecting to buy a printer just before the holidays. What price range do you guys think is reasonable? eta: spelling
  5. Our printer just died! It's old so not unexpected. We need a printer that is cost-effective if there is such a thing, prints in color, and scans. Wireless would be very helpful. Suggests and recommendations welcome.
  6. Double check but I pretty sure in Texas dual credit drops don't count toward the 6 maximum. My daughter is a dual credit student now.
  7. My daughter is definitely interested in the class even though she has to submit a previous analytical paper as a placement test. She's excited about a lit. class that covers her favorite types of books! Thanks so much for the information.
  8. My younger daughter is interested in taking this class for the spring semester. The class is taught by Mrs. Geno. Before I enroll her, I appreciate any information or recommendations for or against the class. My DD is 15 and in the 10th grade. ETA: spelling
  9. I don't think the parents were rude either, but once you RSVP to a party you've made a commitment there as well. I don't hold all commitments to the same priority. Maybe the game was more important, but once it was rescheduled, I would not feel the same as I would for the original date, team commitment or not.
  10. If you're concerned about being employable after homeschooling, I would look at programs leading to either a degree or a certificate to prove current skills. Community colleges often offer a number of certificate programs in various areas. Our local CC has a strong online program. Some of the online classes are good; others are dismal unfortunately.
  11. Thank you all very much! She has gloves but no boots. I'm thinking most of their time will be spent indoors attending the conference, but they will have time for sightseeing and such. My older daughter has a coat with a removable liner. If it fits my younger DD, she'll take that with her. It also has a hood. She gets cold easily - living where we do our winters are mild with only the occasional really cold snap. So taking the coat with a liner & hood, gloves, a couple of pairs of outdoor kind of shoes along with sweaters, she should be okay. What about slacks or jeans for causal wear? Should I get her thermal underwear of some kind? I don't think she could get to an affordable store easily to pick up clothes if the weather got significantly colder while she's there. I want her to have what she's need to be comfortable and have fun without spending a lot on clothes she won't wear very often. She's supposed to wear business casual clothes to the conference itself. We don't know yet, but we're hoping the group will stay at the hotel hosting the conference. That would make life easier for much of the trip anyway.
  12. My younger daughter will be visiting Pittsburgh with a group the middle of November for about a week. Since we live in the south, it has just occurred to me that Pittsburgh just might be cold then. I'm not sure she has heavy enough clothes to take with her. Anyone who lives in the area, I would very much appreciate an idea of the weather in mid-November. She'll need to layer clothes for sure. Suggestions on what she should pack would be wonderful.
  13. Thank you all! My daughter and I have decided together that she will drop the class. She's not learning in proportion to the amount of time she's spending studying. The class just isn't a good fit. I did email the teacher for advice. She also felt my daughter was struggling but didn't have any actual advice. She's so relieved!
  14. My younger daughter is taking an online class that is very hard for her. It's a semester class only fortunately. She's doing so badly, I doubt she can pull out a decent grade even this early in the semester. Her stress level (and mine as well) is through the roof. I'm thinking of taking her out of this class and creating a class for her to study with me. Part of me thinks that's the way to go, but another part of me thinks she could benefit by struggling through this class. She cried all morning. I'm frustrated and I'm too close to the issue to be objective. Other perspectives very welcome.
  15. This attitude shocked me since this company actively recruits among students! Weird but unfortunately not unusual I guess. I've passed along all your replies. Thanks so much. His mom really wants him to submit a letter of resignation rather than telling his boss verbally. I feel sorry for him because he's a good kid and a hard worker. He would have been an asset to this company but... their loss!
