We couldn't believe our eyes, but we got our #1 choice - Commodore Sloat. We're very happy and relieved. I don't know if it was our strategy or if the sun and moon just aligned right for us. Whatever it was, I'll take it.
As some of you may know, we did a late tour of The Stratford School and loved it (and we were accepted). However, upon much thought and deliberation, we've decided to have our daughter attend Commodore Sloat. It's our neighborhood school, it's a great school, and it just feels like the right choice for us. I'm looking forward to getting involved (and have already emailed the Parents' Club!) and doing whatever I can to make this school even better.
Even though my application process is over, I know that many of you are in the thick of it. I read through most of the comments in the "Round I Letters" post, and there's a lot of great advice out there. Take the path that feels right to you.
