The wife and I were a little worried about cost.
What do you tell your girl that aways gets it done, she cant go to this school because of money????

You tell her to keep trying and not give up on the scholarship hopes.I've spent 17 yrs telling her hard work has its rewards.(I was worried about this one)

May God bless all of you.

Do they offer any on campus work? A friend's daughter works in the cafeteria at her school. She eats free, and the money that she earns helps to offset her out of pocket costs. Last year she used to to pay for her books. She only works a few days a week, but the free food also helps to offset her expenses.

which calc?
go to google and look for visual calculus. also pauls notes for calculus
and check out calculus videos on youtube.



Congratulations on your daughter.

If you don't mind. I wonder how did you parent your child to achieve this goal.

and whats your day like with homework etc...? I didn't grow up with someone that really pushed me in doing well. So i lacked that motivation.

does she come home, do homework, eat dinner do more homework. no puter or tv?


My friend who has kids... has his kids doing very well, and I like the way he parents his kids.

Yes that amount includes a stipen for $900.per simester work study.Most likely she will tutor.

When they were young I told them I didn't care what their grades were.Honest I told them I was their future not mine.

I was the home work bad guy for years.Went to every teacher confrence.More than once defending my daughters and forcing the teachers to meet my expectations.

I once told a teacher there was nothing she could teach me about my children that was more important than learning weather or not she could teach them.
