So the tears and the laughter...the why these rejection letters to oh,boy, look at this, Ms. Bramwell, whoopee? Do I ride this emotional wave with you all? No. Categorically no. I will commiserate and laugh for a minute.
The minute ends when we turn to action.
Action means those accepted, must decide where to? Then, we must sign letters of intent to attend, send deposit fees and prepare for the student visas.
Those not admitted must consider Gap Years or Plan B action of schools. It is not the end of the world. A rejection does not make you any less of a person. it is that school's loss.
But again, here comes the list you have all been waiting for, that infernal acceptance list!

Finally, on Sunday past, a few of my students met at Dragon Palace for Dim Sum to meet with one of our current students, Jason Forbes who now attends boarding school in British Columbia. Happy to note that Mrs. Forbes organizd this intervention, had a great brunch, counseled parents and students about the ins and outs of this noble institution...Bravo!
