Should we send our daughter to Catholic school?

My wife and I are Buddhist. We have a four year old daughter who we would like to see get a great education. In our area/county, some of the better (academics, arts, and athletics) schools are Catholic schools. Would it be a good idea to send my daughter to a Catholic school? [more inside]

Keeping friendships in grad school?

As a doctoral student, how do you maintain friendships with non-academics? With all the lab work and time that goes into research, there isn't a lot of time for fun. And it seems that friends and family don't always understand it - especially for first-generation students from places where not everyone goes to college. Have any of you had this experience? What's hard about maintaining relationships with friends and family -- and how do you cope?

Should I finish my second major?

I'm currently a senior undergrad planning on graduating in May. My majors are biology and history, but I'll be working in finance after graduation with a large firm in NYC (and I already have a job lined up). After meeting with an advisor this week, I realized that the "perspective classes" (classes outside my majors that are required for graduation) I had taken to complete the requirements for my bachelors of science in biology are different from those required for my bachelors of arts in history.

Which Central / South Amercian country speaks the clearest form of Spanish?

I'd like to attend an immersive language school -- but would like to learn to speak a relatively region- and dialect-free form. I recently heard a Bolivian Spanish speaker on the radio-- and his Spanish was beautiful. It's possible this is an entirely STUPID question I'm asking-- as any language may sound like mush coming from the mouths of dolts. But-- I tend not to be attacted the sound / clarity / speed of Mexican Spanish or the pronunciation used in Spain. ANY SUGGESTIONS? ALSO-- there are specific language schools in Central / South America would recommend? THANK YOU!
