BS Parent Resource thread


  • Feel free to add yourself! Just cut-and-paste the list from the previous post and add your name to the relevant line. After your username, please note the year(s) of graduation, prefaced with the letter P if you are a parent.
  • Make sure your notification preferences are set to email you if you get a personal message or you are mentioned in a post. (settings can be adjusted by substituting your user name in this path:
  • If you attempt to contact someone and they are completely unresponsive, delete them from the list.

Note to those with fewer than 15 posts: you can’t initiate a PM conversation with these helpful people unless you’ve made 15 posts. You can, however, respond to a PM from anyone, and so have a private conversation in a thread that they initiate. To get this started it is reasonable to go to a thread related to the school or topic of your choice and create a post saying “I’m new and have a question about [topic] I’d love to discuss in private messages, but I’m not able to initiate a PM conversation until I have more posts… could I ask @[INSERTUserName1] or @[INSERTUserName2] to PM me? Thanks in advance!” Again, make sure you have notifications set to email you when you receive a PM (as described above)
