You're right. I am fortunate. Which is why, whenever I meet the criteria, I'd like to participate in DWOB to give something back to the world. They gave me an academic scholarship and GA gives everyone with like a B average like three grand every year if they maintain it, so yearly they're paying just just a few G's over half the cost of housing and tuition costs. Plus it's a cheap college anyway. It's just 20 grand for tuition (before scholarships). Other colleges are like 35. It would be nice to stay three years, then apply to one of the four prestigious (just want the name) colleges I'd like to go to to save money, but that's a huge gamble. I may have been accepted my second or third, but not fourth year...gamble. If I don't transfer, I can get a dept. scholarship, too, when I meet the qualifications and if I'm awarded. Even cheaper.
JC, Everyone is guaranteed a job if they want to work. You don't have to, but like 98% have a job some time. Most people would have a job anyway, and it's REALLY convenient to practically live next to your job. I wanted going to have a job regardless, I'm just happy I was recommended to work in the GH instead of cleaning puke-filled toilets. It really blurs the line between work and something pleasure.
It's 75% women, so I feel like the girls get the best dorms. Two of theirs are gothic-style and practically castles. All of the men's are modern and boring. I've heard that they're pretty on the outside but the rooms are noticeably smaller. I guess it evens out. The old dorms are same-sex, all the new ones are coed.... not gothic but they're modernized and in good shape, at least. To be honest, had they not had coed dorms, I wouldn't have even applied. That would have been the straw that broke the camel's back when it comes to religious..ness. What's so retarded is they don't even have the balls to call themselves a religious/Xtian school. They just say they were founded on Xtian principals. Wimps
They said it was included in the tuition when I asked if I had to pay monthly or anything (well.. I didn't know..). There wasn't any distinction that I'm aware of; I think it was just lumped in.
