What's amusing is that she put on FB that she'd received a $56,000 scholarship to some school, then took it down the next day. When contacted, the school said that while they couldn't discuss any offers, the most they gave any student was $16,500.
yeah I read about this yesterday.... crazy!
higher education should be free........
I agree. And I feel that one you are 16 the state should buy everyone a car. And when you have a baby...baby food and diapers should be free....stroller and crib too. And when you are 8....everyone should get a free bike. And McDonalds gift cards for kids birthday....and 6 free bottles of olive oil a year per family...its heart healthy....
Maybe insurance companies should pay for the olive oil
I have a relative who went to Junior college in Chicago in the 1960's. She worked the summer she graduated from high school. With her earnings, she paid for her tuition, bought books and new clothes to start college. She could have, as easily, paid tuition to go to the 4 year Chicago Teacher's College out of her summer earnings, as well. In fact, she could have paid to go the University of Illiniois at Navy Pier out of her summer earnings, although she wouldn't have earned enough to throw in the new wardrobe.
Jr College in the 1960s was $10/semester
Chicago Teacher's College was $20/semester
Univ. of IL was $60/semester
I agree wholeheartedly, James.
I heard on TV that the costs of getting a state university education across the country (tuition, fees, books, room and board) has gone up one thousand two hundred (1,200) percent in the past 20 years.
Only if the student has a high school GPA of 3 or better, and maintains that GPA while in college.
3.0 out of 4? Or 3.0 out of 5? In other words, a "B" average or a "C" average?
Out of 4: a "B" average.
