I don't see the diff between Grade four, or fourth grade.

Are you seeking a lawyer in the Hamilton area, where you once resided? I know of an excellent one in Burlington, just east of Hamilton. She's $400-450/hr and would likely want a 10k retainer but she kicks ass and has a formidable, takes no prisoners reputation. Private msg me if you'd like her info. I wish I'd used her. I was intimidated by her fees (was new in the game). Now I realize if I'd used her from the get-go, I would have saved both time and money. I made a big mistake not retaining her.

Not if you skipped one of the grades before grade 4. ; )

I think it's uncommon now in Canada... unless you are a true genius and maybe homeschooled anyway until you can attend medical school when you're 12 or so.

In any case, it is a drawback to be one year younger than the majority once you get to high school - you know physical maturation and all that. ; )

It probably was a dumb idea. I've met others who had the same experience - sometimes skipping two grades. Maybe it was a baby boom thing?

I'll always remember the teacher informing my mom that she almost had me skip grade 4. I didn't apply much effort in school so she definitely made the right choice.

Hadenough, do you think if you asked for a free consult that she might agree and give you some valuable information? Just a thought.
