  1. In other words, you need to BEG to get into school.
    Or you need to be a salesman.
    This is why public school seems like a much better option.

  2. This post is 100% true.
    Its not because you have to beg, or act desperate, its just that schools have limited numbers of slots. If they never heard from you, they have no idea if you are really interested in their school. Of course they would rather give the slot to someone that they know for sure wants to come.

  3. This only works if they really are ok taking you into the school just they have too many applicants. Then the school feels like the one that calls 100 times really wants this school. They wonder if the person who isn’t so pushy really prefers another school and this is their backup.They also feel bad saying no to someone who seems really desperate to come to their school and will take them over the applicant that doesn’t call. (again assuming they are a fit for the school by the schools standards and its just a space constraint issue) calling 100 times won’t help if the school feels the applicant isn’t a good fit…(right or wrong, its the fact) also be smart. have good excuse to call. get different ppl rot call different ppl involved with the school…….and the main thing is make sure to tell each school they are your dream school and they are your number 1 choice.

  4. In my daughters high school , her classmates are the girls with best midos, tznious and academics . I dont see that yichus or money means too much because very few of her classmates have too much of either .Many of the parents are bnei Torah who lead Torahdik families ,but they don’t have yichus or money .

  5. And when you apply to a school, make sure you are on par with their standards!!!! I know of a fine yungerman whose child would probably have been accepted to ploini school, until the hanhala saw his wife!!! Vhamavin yavin.
