    Thanks for the input. It's good to know the new trend. When I was in a STEM graduate school, more than 80% of students are internationals at that time.

    For Parents Question about pursuing athletic scholarship

    Thanks for the information. It’s kind of the reason I asked if you consider the financial outcome when choosing majors. Unless you are super passionate to it, I don’t think political science is a good major to be in. The job market for it seems limited.

    For Parents Question about pursuing athletic scholarship

    True, there are people who are financially successful without college. However, statistics show people with college are better off than people without, so I would rather to go with the one with higher odds.

    For Parents Question about pursuing athletic scholarship

    The high hour requirement is what I dislike gymnastics. It makes kids hard to focus on schools and other school life. It seems you all are happy if the kids are doing what they love and study whatever they want. Do you ever take financial outcome into consideration when encouraging kids to pick...

    For Parents Question about pursuing athletic scholarship

    For Parents Question about pursuing athletic scholarship

    About choosing better gymnastics school, most gymnasts have done with competition after college, but education will be with you the entire life. It’s hard to justify this choice for me.

    For Parents Question about pursuing athletic scholarship

    Thanks. For example, one gave up her UC Berkeley offer and went to Arkansas. For me, UC Berkeley is way better than Arkansas. It’s hard for me to understand this choice.

    Maybe it's a dumb question for you all, but I want to hear your inputs to understand it. I am an immigrant, so I don't fully understand American culture.

    For Parents Navigating sibling dynamic

    I have two, one is level 7 while the other is level 6. The level 7 is very graceful and flexible, good at floor and beam, while the level 6 is powerful and good at bar and vault.
