Okay group. What did I miss here?
Are universities normally funded by tax dollars?

But I agree. What the hell are they doing with the $50,000 a year each student pays? No thanks. Even in the worst economies, universities seem to do just fine. Screw them.

Of course public universities are funded with tax dollars. First from the state where they are located, then from grants and Federal funding for specific programs. That's how the Feds impose all the affirmative action etc stuff. The school complies or it loses its Federal funding and research grants.
There are also endowments. Tuition is a very small portion of the operating income.

Then why the hell did I pay for college like a sucker?!
Whereas if I was an illegal immigrant or other minority, I'd have gone for free.
Next thing you know, people are gonna start wanting free healthcare.
I'm smelling a scam.

Yes, it's called the Dream Act. Look into it.

Triple OT! I didn't make it but a few minutes into 1OT so I checked the score this morning and texted my friend who you met... totally forgot about the time difference. She just answered me a few minutes ago.

Did you read it? The act doesn't pay for college, it paves the way for legal status, as long as certain requirements are met. One of which is going to college, the other is military service. As a matter of fact, they are not even eligible for Pell Grants, which you were. As far as I can tell states are passing this separately.
Oh yes, they must be a good moral character, which you, fortunately, didn't have to prove.

I felt a weeeensy bit bad for all those Bruins fans that had to stay up until 1 a.m. only to be horribly disappointed. But then I was so fired up, I don't think I fell asleep until an hour and a half after the game ended anyway.

True. And then the wife/husband who is on the short end of the stick of the prenup gets a lawyer to try to get out of it.

I say unless you were really forced to sign it (and if you were why get married?), stick to whatever agreement you made. A contract is a contract.

Oh heck no! I didn't feel bad for the Bruins fans. I was excited the Hawks won.

They better win in regulation time next work day night game. Screwing up my sleep!

Get game, though.

I watched the whole thing. It made the ending that much better b/c I really need to get some sleep.

It was like: Yes! Okay. Now I have to settle down and sleep.

If you went to an Illinois university that wasn't private, you woule have paid tons more if it wasn't funded.

As for the illegal immigrnat status or other minority, you're just being crazy.

Okay. You're probably right. I can't speak for everyone. I just know someone who just went through a divorce, married 25 years. Has to pay her husband maintenance and he works and earns $100,000 a year -- but she makes a lot more. And he gets half her 401k and all her retirement things. And he doesn't pay child support. He doesn't have to.

It allows illegal aliens to apply for privately funded assistance. Assistance that I, as a legal resident, do not qualify for.

I'm waiting for the service guy from the TV company to get here. They have 15 minutes left in the window or I get a $20 credit.

It is now pouring rain and I am sympathetic to anyone who has to work outside or drive around from site to site in this weather. Still, I have to pick up E from school around 11.45, so I don't have a lot of time to deal with their delays.
