: : : : : : 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.
Mater Dei is 40% hispanic...just sayin...
