a lone (very nice and polite) dad of a Youth who is a potential engineer or economist stopped me and asked me questions about *Ch*c*g* for his son who is applying (& is currently in IB so i told him i did IB & earned his Trust) and i tried to gently tell him like your son is gonna stress himself out of his mind, get him to a land grant or the one high-status small collaborative engineering trade school (you know the one, i cant remember the name, that’s the kid’s main other option) but idk if he accepted my message into his heart
