    picked up his cell phone when I called and said I can meet at local Gamestop and he can hook up there for me to prove it works, etc. Do you think he is legit then or can this be a scam (ie counterfeit item) anyway. I would beuy retail but cannot afford right now.

  2. Tween/Teen Is it possible if your kid has great ECs, a varsity sport, president of the student body etc. to get into a really good school like Brown or Yale, if they have a 3.8 from a TT...(more) 12-1-2016 8:22am (61 replies)
    school and a 33 ACT score. Counselors told her not to apply ED and waste the chip unless you have a 4.0. DC did anyway and now I am concerned it was a mistake and she wasted an ED opportunity, on a school that was too much of a reach. Anyone with experience. This is not me bragging there are plenty of kids at her high school with far better GPAS.

    The Ohio St killer was a Somalian refugee who came to this country for Safe haven. I'm sure that we provided him with housing, food and college tuition assistance with our fondest hope that he would peacefully assimilate to our society. Instead he goes on a rampage running people over and stabbing kids the w a butcher knife bc Ohio Stste did not provide separate prayer rooms. Libs are feeling bad saying we should provide prayer rooms to Muslims at every University at tax payers' expense. The big issue here is that it will not stop there. They have demanded Switzerland change their flag bc they find the cross offensive and have made other outrageous demands in Europe (look it up). The next step will be that they feel uncomfortable w women not being cocered. In caving into these demands, we are not only giving credence to violent acts but we are alienating our own citizens who have been taught that there is a separation of church and state. No other religion is making these dem

    Would love to hear any and all thoughts. A public speaking coach is offering group lessons online for 6 kids at a time for $18 per student per class. The kids would give a practice speech every week and critique each other, leading up to an event where they'll give a speech in front of about 100 parents and other students.

    only to my dd but several others. According to my dd it sounds like the girl is trying to get in with the 'mean popular girls' in school. I'm pretty sure the mom is aware of it (according to others) but I don't talk to her as much as I used to. Unfortunately my younger dd is best friends with the younger sister of this girl and I have to say I really wish she wasn't. I've been pulling back my friendship from this mom for a while now and wish my younger one would do the same. I just feel that if this mom is allowing her older dd to act this way (and encouraging it) I'm afraid if she starts encouraging her younger one to be the same, it's only going to hurt my younger dd. The older girls are in 6th and the younger ones are in 4th. WWYD?
