(((Theresa))) I'm so sorry that she wasn't chosen. I agree, it does sound as if she was a perfect candidate. Is there any way possible that it could have been a mix up? Has she spoken with anyone else who was chosen? It just doesn't seem to make sense. :(

I honestly don't know what advice to give about the housing situation; I'm sorry.

Not sure I can do much more than offer hugs. DS had been working at his dream part time job that was in his field (art) for about 11 months and went in Easter weekend and was told that was that - they'd let go about 20 of the staff and they got no notice. Not the same financial impact to us as what you're talking about but he's now out of a job he loved, and has no income and needs it for school/gas, etc. (wants to come home on weekends to do maintenance or other jobs around the house to get cash, but then that's more out of our pockets vs. an employer's) So in a way I can relate. He's in the process of looking for another job; I assume your dd is now in the process of looking for alternative housing.

Is there a way she can find out if any of her school friends might have space wherever they're planning to be, without her committing yet? That has to be tough - you can't put money and a contract down on an apartment or house without permanently committing, and if she's then chosen...

Your DD did the right thing by asking why she wasn't chosen, but she shouldn't really expect to get an answer.

Maybe I'm just weird but I'd want to know if I came across in a way that was less impressive than my paper credentials suggested.

I'm sorry, Theresa. I don't have any advice but am sending cyber-hugs to both you and your dd.
