40 days before you were conceived…you were in the womb! Well, Biology 101 disagrees.
Your question cannot be answered because it is based on false information. If you are unhappy with your school it is not because you are female and all females are stuck in the wrong school, but because your family thinks you should stay in that school or there are no other school options, etc. Plenty of boys have yet to find a yeshiva that suits them.
I heard about a seminary spreadsheet from friends, but I don’t really know about it, so no I didn’t.
Is anyone doing a Jewish college, like Touro, the year after seminary? (And getting credits for seminary year?)
I know two people who just went to Ateres and really liked it. Plus, I didn’t think I could handle all the work of Machon Raaya and enjoy the year too. (I get a little too involved in the work aspect and forget about fun time.)So I decided Ateres would be better. Yeah I can’t wait to meet everyone in Ateres, though I don’t think I’m gona want to admit that I’m SWATthatfly on YWN Coffee Room. But I still hope we become friends!
Definitely Labrador retriever, but they should get it as a puppy because they are adorable!
Someone who gets a dog needs to have lots of room for it, be prepared to clean up disgusting dog poo and walk it A LOT. Is that workable with a family in Boro Park?
P.S poodle mixes are not cute so why do you like them?
I really enjoy reading books by Agatha Christie- her Hercule Poirot mysteries. I am even in the middle of one now!
I’m going to Ateres E”H. I know a couple people from my school who are going to Keser Chaya. Don’t doubt your decision once you’ve made it cuz you can have a great year wherever you go as long as you try and make it great!
Oh wow. That’s rough. How’s he doing now?
need seminary help- Have you decided on a seminary?
Oh no! What happened to it? Did your friend cuddle it to death? 🙁
Nah, actually the comments are getting less interesting and kinda lame. There are only so many times you can hear people joking around about nonsense plus the funny people are not funny anymore. 🙁
I think the whole coffee room needs a bump.
No, but I saw a picture of one and it was so cute! I want one as a pet! If your neighbor ever gets one tell him to invite me over for a play date. 🙂
Ugh! It’s pretty quiet and boring around here. 🙁
I decided on Ateres and hopefully the dorms will work out ok.
E”H I’ll meet you next year!
I think Binas is frumer than Machon Raaya and Keser Chaya. I believe Machon Raaya is most academic, then Binas, then Keser Chaya. But I could be a little off…
I have information about Machon Raaya, just not really Ateres. I work hard for my grades, but I’m scared I’ll only focus on academics if I go to Machon Raaya. I know Ateres isn’t for relaxing, I just meant juxtaposed to Machon Raaya.
I didn’t mean to make it sound like I’m afraid of specifically Ateres’s dorm, just dorms in general. 🙂
I also got into Machon Raaya. I really want info about the dorms and that kind of stuff. My real issue is deciding if it’s worth it to have a nicer dorm and just work harder academically at Machon Raaya, or “relax” work-wise at Ateres. For some reason I’m not really worried about the type of teachers and other girls, my fear is the dorm.
Yeah, it would be awesome if we met at Ateres!!
I was accepted to Ateres and also another seminary. The problem is that I know more about the other seminary and not so much Ateres, but I still don’t want to say no to either one yet.
What do you know about Ateres? Maybe you can help me decide! 🙂
I don’t think it is a bais Yaakov seminary, though I believe they are trying to become frumer.
A lot of seminaries say they want your motivations for wanting to learn in Israel, your expectations of seminary, your skills, interests, achievements, furute plans, background, goals… (I took that all from 2 seminary applications.) Just talk about yourself and your family.
nonikname: do you happen to know if when they give their deadline it means they wont accept applications after that? Also, when they say they want 4 pictures do they want four of the same picture?
Does anyone know if the Ateres interview person comes to LA? Last year I don’t think (s)he did.
