        I have been searching other options, as have the students.  The
girls to whom I refer are not waiting to apply, but waiting to make
final decisions as to which school to attend.  I would NEVER have have
a student wait for an unknown, perhaps non-existant, quantity.  I am
lucky enough to have students who are highly motivated and intelligent,
and who are using me as another resource in their searches.  I
certainly do encourage them to do this on their own as well, as I see
the benefit in that.  But, if I can help them, I intend fully to do so.
Thanks for your comments, and good luck to you as well.
