: : : : : Already committed to Oregon St. and she's 6'9". Strange she'd come from New Jersey to Southern California when she's going to OSU. Originally from Paraguay, the UCLA/USC fit might have been better than OSU.

: : : : And why the circus that is Ribet?

: : : : That makes no sense.

: : : Ribet's a decent secular private but it also has a large Latino student body. I know that sounds strange but a young girl from Paraguay who is 6'9 and still learning to speak English might feel more comfortable there than, say, Windward.

: : : Ribet is a boarding school so they can offer a dorm for her to stay. So I think that's part of the reason why.

: other schools have stronger BB and solid international student programs/homestays (SM, JSerra, Fairmont Prep)

None of those schools have a large Hispanic student base. That could be important to an ESL student who is admittedly very uncomfortable about her height.

But who knows, maybe she and her family just felt it was the right fit. She was living with a relative in NJ so maybe she has some family close by in DTLA.
