Round 5: October 2011 (Autumn)
Narrated by Mei
honors program at the university. It'll really help her out when she enters the work force after she graduates.
older girls mostly tried hanging around us older kids. She'll be starting high school next year so I guess she's trying to make some friends before she gets there.
I took a bunch of pics at the Halloween party and here are the rest.
Everyone had a blast, even the dog!
-We're starting the round off right away with an ROS. Mei rolled the Errands ROS but I failed on this one. I didn't take pics on the different lots (ainly because they were full of Maxis blah-ness but also because it was rather boring. You didn't miss anything interesting.
-I think I'm going to redo my trade school. I gave a tour of it over at N99 sometime last year but I built it before I really got the hang of my new storytelling style. The building is a lot smaller and cramped compared to how I would build it now. So it will be hard to get pics in there when I send Mei.
-I finally figured out what I'm going to do with the honors program. I put the details in my Higher Education post to keep the notes here shorter. In summary, instead of having an honors program in high school and college like I thought I wanted to do in the Hu's last update, I'll only have it in college. Those in the honors program can start at a higher level in their field than those not in the honors program. I also added the other changes I made to higher education in that post (like minimum skill requirements).
-Question for you all: How do you let your college students get jobs? Do you let them start at the bottom? Start a little higher than entry level? I'm thinking of letting them start at level 3 or higher depending on the career, higher than that if they're in the honors program (or they get first priority if another sim is going for the same job).
