Well, I’ve heard from some parents and they have yet to receive their notification. According to the DOE site the OLSAT test results were to be mailed today (Friday, April 16). Most likely the OLSAT results will arrive to everyone’s mailboxes by Monday or Tuesday of next week. As soon as I hear from my parent sources in NYC when they receive the NYC gifted and talented acceptance letter I’ll let everyone know.
When the letters from the NYC DOE on for G&T placement there will be 2 camps – one group that’s excited their child go into the gifted and talented program and the other group that’s disappointed their child didn’t make the 90%+ required on the OLSAT test. Don’t let it get you down if you’re in the second camp – trust me, you won’t be alone. It’s not the time to beat yourself up as a bad parent that should have tried harder or paid hundreds or thousands of dollars on OLSAT test prep. Instead, take a look at the situation as an opportunity to see what options are available for your child. It’s not the time to feel sorry for yourself or feel sorry for your child. There are so many flaws in the testing of 4 year olds that many experts claim that true gifts don’t manifest themselves until age 7+. There’s always next year so don’t beat yourself up.
