I have 15 Withdrawals on my undergraduate transcript, which are mostly from a history of depression, physical issues, and other mental health issues. I also had to take five years off in between my undergraduate degree, which I started in 2011 and still have not completed due to my mental and physical health issues which were mostly resolved two years ago.

Grading a group project when one group member slacks off

I'm faced with a tricky, college-level grading issue: Two members of a three-person group claim that the third member barely did anything on a group project; that third member claims he contributed an appropriate one-third of the work. Per the assignment prompt, all members of a group are to receive the same grade. Teachers and ethicists: How would you handle this? [more inside]

Speak up?

My ten year old daughter has a naturally quiet voice. When she does a presentation, she consistently gets feedback from her classmates and the teacher that she needs to speak up. She's also sometimes hard to understand in loud environments. I'm conflicted. [more inside]

Does this path to an art therapy counseling career make sense?

Does it make sense to seek lower student debt by going through a state school generic MA in Counseling program and then tacking on a post-Master’s art therapy certification, versus going through a private MA in Counseling/Art Therapy program that costs more money but is faster? [more inside]

Which of these schools makes the most sense?

A Chinese friend of mine was accepted to Masters programs (humanities, area studies) across the US, including Stanford, Duke, UNC, UMass Amhest (with funding), UCLA, UIUC, and University of Indiana. His eventual goal is to be a professor. He's leaning toward UIUC, because the faculty there have shown a lot of interest in him—and Duke and Stanford are very expensive. Any advice for him?

Is it possible to get into Dal, with a low 80s average in grade 12? Specifically this individual is hoping to major in History. Dal is not know to be easy to get into (Macleans cites the average entering grade as 88%), but as with other universities, I'm assuming sciences/engineering programs skew the entrance averages up.
