Because, y'know, these things don't test what you actually know, but how well you've been prepped to take the test, right? Seriously, though, it not sucking is a good sign. She's just feeling a lot of pressure, because she is competitive and her peers are the top-5 students in her class, so they'll all have this very visible Badge of Braininess and she has to work harder at it than the other ladies (or so she says).

woops. Apologies. Misgendering is a felony now, isn't it?
HA! I don't know about that, but she might throw down with you :mrgreen:

Could use a few vibes sent this way, as the kiddo is having surgery on her ankle this afternoon. Should be routine, but it's still about a 90-minute procedure, and then there's the whole recovery bit.

Thanks for the healing vibes! We're all a bit nervous, despite the routineness of it all.

Yes, she got a 21. She's planning to retake it in June or July to see if she can up that at all. And if not, so many of the schools she'll be applying to have gone Test Optional, that maybe it won't make a difference given the rest of her "student resume".

No doubt it will go well and her ankle will have here-to-unknown superhero abilities in no-time.

Good for her! I'm glad more schools are not requiring the test. Is she looking at in-state or out of state schools?

Little late but I'm vibing that your kid heals quickly and soon returns to delivering roundhouse kicks to your head, a la Chuck Norris. :D

Surgery went well. Doc said the surgery itself was pretty routine and he doesn't expect any complications. He said when we went in to scope it before really getting in there, that she had a "very angry ankle" and he did a lot of "cleaning out" that might actually make her feel better than the surgery itself (though the surgery was necessary to fix a problem, but the other stuff was causing the pain). She's been pretty good over the weekend, but definitely in more pain upon day 2 and 3.

As for schools, she's looking all over right now. Wants to stay within a 5+ hours drive from home, and looking at medium to big schools. Big Ten, Big Twelve, and a few SEC schools on her list. Going to try to expand her horizons a bit to some more mid-sized schools to see what she thinks. COVID and the surgery kink up the in-person visits, but hopefully we'll have some time this summer to get to some places. Did our first visit last Monday, before her surgery, and it went really really well and set a good bar for the rest of them :)

Glad to hear your daughter's doing better! Tell your daughter to choose her U by the cuteness of the mascots. I chose by another metric, and now I'm exiled in Nebraska:

Glad all went well, Jeepz, especially with the college visit. Mid-size is a good happy medium, especially if she has never had to start building a friend base from scratch. The larger universities are great, but can be difficult for some to navigate and find a niche.
