    I would say that the most useful parts for us have been the Summit, the summer camp, and to some extent the elists. But we haven't taken the initiative to make extensive use of the consultants. I also expect that the balance of usefulness will shift as DD10 gets older.

    Thank you Southlake, Loy58 and KTPie,!

    I'm hoping that DYS will help advocate for DD as she will not be grade skipped next school year. We will see how the year goes and how will the school will be able to subject accelerate.

    I am very much looking forward to the prospect of DD meeting other children at her cognitive AND chronological age and of course connecting with their families.

    I'm a bit confused because I applied to the young scholars program on my son's behalf and received confirmation June 30th that all materials had been received. (Including the nominator form) I thought we were good for the 1st of July but I just received another email saying the application is now complete and will be submitted for review on the 1st. Does that mean I was pushed out a month because of some sort of processing delay?

    Thx

    No, it takes a month after your application is complete. So if you got everything in by June 30, then you will hear at the end of July, not the 1st. They do need time to review everything. smile

    Brandijocelyn, same thing happened to me this most recent go around but we were not delayed by a month. You should hear by end of July (I was worried it would add a month but it didn't). No worries!

    hi all,
    is anyone else still waiting to hear back from July? I applied mid June so the wait has felt so long, even though I know I'm still within the window. Crossing fingers that we hear back soon!
