Tuition

As my niece gets ready to scrape together funds for her last year at college, I was amused to find this whilst web-wandering....

Happy collegiate funding~!

I am going back to school this fall. I know I am going to get screwed on the loans again but I plan on being a little smarter this time. And I only have to take two classes.

I was in the campus bookstore the other day and noticed that the required book (which is not out in paperback) for all incoming freshman is a novel by one of English Professors.

Doret, congratulations on going back. I also hope that congratulations are in order and that you've gotten that job (meant to leave that comment at CO). I will be paying off student loans forever, is what it feels like, but it was worth it - hope it is for you, too.

Ditto on the congrats, Doret! I hope it works out well. (I, too, am still paying off student loans...as is the hubby...)

This graphic is hilarious. I just sent it on to some friends because we were trying to remember whether there are any other wizarding schools in Britain and therefore Hogwarts is just the most awesome one, or if it's the ONLY one, in which case they have some kind of monopoly on wizard education. :)

This is hilarious! And wow, I thought my textbooks were expensive but I averaged only $100/class. Wow, those are pricey!

My interview is on the 15th so think good thoughts.

The Hogwart textbooks are probably so expensive because magic is considered a science and those textbooks aren't cheap.

Carin: Exactly what Doret says: apparently magic is a science, and those tomes are never cheap!!
