  2. NYC Schools Lab Middle School/random-lottery class/academic rigor?...(more) 5-1-2022 7:33pm (1 reply)
    This year NYC Lab Middle School has had an incoming class of random/lottery kids. How are they doing? Their 6th grade Math used to be fairly rigorous, and more homework than Baruch, LMC and such. Has that changed now and somewhat dilued to fit the lottery placed incoming 6th grade?

  3. NYC Schools This post has been disliked 4 times. showSO on the regular decision post. At my kids small NYC private school, I know of acceptances at Brown, Penn, Cornell, Dartmouth, Yale, Wesleyan and Duke. But many of the kids who...(more) 4-27-2022 3:06pm (28 replies)
    got into very highly ranked schools were not in advanced classes and didn't have the highest scores (I'm thinking Williams and Cornell in particular). They also weren't URM or legacy as far as I know. So this is a reminder that there is a lot of randomness to the process. When you hear 'my kid got into x school therefore the process isn't risky', this is a sign that the person writing it doesn't understand statistics. By definition with risk, some people do better and some so worse, given the luck of the draw. BTW, I'm not saying that RD is 'risky' relative to ED. Just that they both are in some sense, if you understand risk to be randomness.
