Refer to the first excerpt I posted from the Cornell Daily Sun article on the previous page of this thread: https://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/th...ll-boots-and-camel.105458/page-7#post-5580264UM.....Cornell does not have a pre-med program.
Very few top colleges and universities do. Usually folks major in biology or other science major and take the classes that medical schools require. Which is how I ended up in Chemistry 1a at Pomona College with all the "pre-meds."UM.....Cornell does not have a pre-med program.
LOL!Very few top colleges and universities do. Usually folks major in biology or other science major and take the classes that medical schools require. Which is how I ended up in Chemistry 1a at Pomona College with all the "pre-meds."
The article said she's majoring in Human Biology, Health, and Society. You can major in anything you'd like as long as you take the prerequisite courses needed for most medical programs.
Oh man. I wish her well.....but I see a train wreck coming.
Sure their goals may differ, but from the article, she is eyeing Beijing 2022. Both of them want to make the next Olympic team.
Other figure skaters have competed and studies at the same time. What's more unusual is for a skater to do so and be a 2 time World Champion.I'm wishing Karen the best. I get people have their doubts, but honestly, the most probable bad case scenario isn't really that bad. It's not as if we hadn't seen Karen having bad seasons/comps already, so not much will change there.
What’s also unusual is she’s moving across the country far from her training base and adopting that two-time world champ’s set up of being coached through video outside of times where they will be back the rink during breaks. Otherwise, you are right that skaters have attended university and still managed to juggle skating before, even if them winning Worlds with the above set up is quite unusual.Other figure skaters have competed and studies at the same time. What's more unusual is for a skater to do so and be a 2 time World Champion.
"Illumination" from Secret Garden (the group) was her FS music selection last season that she never competed.I have my short done already. And my long is not done yet but, music decided and started. I think the long should be done by the end of next week.
What are you skating to?
My short is to “You Say” by Lauren Daigle. And my long is “Illumination” from The Secret Garden.
Would a comeback assignment be in addition to or in lieu of a host spot at SA? In other words, could Karen potentially get 2 spots, a comeback spot and a host spot?I assume Karen plans to return to the Grand Prix as a "Come-Back" Skater (based on her 4th place at 2017 Worlds) since she withdrew from her GP assignments last season due to injury.
Karen did participate in the 2018-19 season though. She skated a SP at CS Tallinn. So will she actually qualify as a comeback skater? She didn't complete that competition, so maybe it will be fine, but with a strict reading of the rule, I don't think she would. But the ISU seems to be pretty flexible with the GP rules.From the 2018-19 GP Announcement:
c) “Come-Back” Skaters/Couples: Skaters/Couples who were previously seeded (placed 1 to 6 within the
past 10 years at a ISU World Figure Skating Championships) and subsequently did not participate in one
or more competitive seasons will be given priority consideration to re-enter the ISU Grand Prix of Figure
Skating for selection of up to 2 assignments if they commit in writing to participating in two ISU Grand Prix
of Figure Skating events and if such return is announced and confirmed by the date of the annual Selection
Meeting. Such so called “Come Back Skaters/Couples” will not substitute any of the Seeded
Skaters/Couples, mentioned under a). “Come Back Skaters/Couples” must not fulfil the requirements of
the minimum Grand Prix score and would be considered for selection as an Organizing ISU Member
Choice. A come back under this clause is allowed only once in their competitive career for any
d) If a Seeded or “Come-Back” Skater/Couple withdraws from an assigned event, even for medical reasons,
that Skater/couple will not be assigned to another event.
He replied to a comment confirming she is still with his group. I suppose it's just a positive word of encouragement before she heads off to NYC for the ITNY gala?Vincent posted quite an interesting Instagram post concerning Gracie. Is she leaving Vincent’s academy?
See that's odd, because I was curious that any major university would offer such limited class times, especially with a large student population to accommodate. So I did a quick google search and found literally 71 courses offered at Yale this semester that meet between 6 p.m and 10 p.m. Many others start as late as 3:30 and 4 p.m, too.The challenge for Nathan and Karen is that Yale and Cornell, and schools of similar caliber, have strict requirements for how many classes/credits students need to take each semester and year to remain in good academic standing. They expect students to graduate in 4 years and those who take longer are the exception, not the norm. At public universities, which cater to a diverse population in terms of age and life experience, there is more flexibility in the time to complete one's degree. And with a large number of non-traditional age students who may also be working part-time, raising a family, etc, while attending school, there are often classes offered in the evenings. At Yale, Cornell, and other schools with a mostly traditional college-age population that mostly lives on campus, classes are usually offered between 9 AM and 3 PM, making it a challenge to fit in training based on rink schedules.
Nathan was able to do it this year, sounds like he had a lot of cooperation from the university...hopefully, Karen will get that too.
