So yesterday was crazy. Bard always notches things up but that NEST mess was a big surprise. 

They've changed things up this year and I'm thinking that's could be why there's all this extra interest:

new-ish principal

no additional testing to get in

backing off a bit from what some/many thought was extreme rigor

tours instead of open houses

Yesterday it seems they added more spaces to tours and then added a new one towards the end of the day. I might keep checking their site, on the off chance they'll add something else. I have NO IDEA if they will, but hoping they're hearing from parents about this and figure out a way to accommodate more families. You never know. 

And again, thanks all for the info sharing. It gets overwhelming at times, but this entire process is overwhelming.
