    My kids are both sleep deprived- but not due to the workload. They both struggle with pretty severe insomnia.

    There are days when workload is very intense can lead to sleep deprivation in spite of managing time efficiently. And then to make matter worse, an announced quizzes takes place and plays havoc with grades as you are busy studying for the other subject, home work, clubs etc. etc.

    It is pressure cooker environment sometimes, but one has to learn how to manage it. Parents can only say to kid, please take a deep breath and you will live

    I think it can be a pressure cooker regardless of BS or not BS. If one takes a rigorous course load at a top private school, there will be the same kind of stresses and workload.

    The OP asked the question on M8 4 years ago and never returned. I would assume if s/he got accepted on M10 that s/he has since had first hand experience. Closing thread.
