anyone have to stand inline for days to get in

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
The public magnet school I want my dd to go to enrolls children by the order the applications are turned in. Most parents wait 3-4 days in line before the Saturday morning start time. There's supposedly an interview but basically the parents just have to come to an orientation in winter. I find this crazy but am willing to do what I have to. My bestfriend will be with me. Supposedly this weeds out the undedicated parents. Other magnet schools do the lottery system but this school didn't like the type of parents they got when they did it one year.

The magnet school I would like my kids to attend has a 3 year wait list...so a few days doesn't sound so bad. :LOL
