Anyone else going, PM me!

Acceptances / Scholarships for Early Decision
« on: March 04, 2007, 10:59:26 PM »
If you apply for early decision at a school and pay the seat deposit, can you still get a scholarship after? Or are scholarships largely meant to attract those who haven't committed?

Oh Canada! / Re: Canadian financial aid options
« on: March 04, 2007, 10:17:52 PM »
hey all,

glad we're bumping this topic since it seems to be a source of stress for us all.

so does canhelp max out at $20 000 a year regardless of your credit history? As Memories mentioned, most of us are looking at much more than that. To get my VISA, I require proof of $47 000 USD, so about $50 000 Canadian.

All the banks I have spoken with have said to go for the total loan amount I'd need NOW rather than later, so apply for $150 000 now as opposed to $50 000 per year. How's everyone else doing this: year by year or lump chunk now?

Wait List / Re: Case Waitlist

I called the other day and was told that they dont order their waitlist and that they take people off it right until the bitter end. Good to hear, but the wait is brutal huh?

Yup, got the same "we were impressed by your credentials" ding. My letter however, WAS sealed... but only because the postman left our mailbox open in the rain. But the good news is that the signature ran, so you can tell that the Ass. Dean actually signs the letters! Now that's what I like to see in a rejection. I'm not bitter... noooooo... lol.

Do you say the n-word? Why or why not?

Thanks

Every chance I get.

At this point I am just me, I was raised in it and will be it no matter how far in life I go.

A good "n-word Please" ain't never hurt nobody.

And for anyone who has anything to say about it, I really don't care. I respect our opinion and I know when not to use the word because it may offend someone (white or black)





If a black guy says it to a black guy or a white guy to a white guy, then it may not be an issue.

I'm not black. Next time I wanna get my asskicked, remind me to bust out a good n-word Please to one of my black friends, and ask me if I get hurt. Just because Dave Chappelle made a cereal commercial out of it, doesn't mean it's in the acceptable lexicon. Maybe one day... hopefully some day.

I'm curious as to why you said "hopefully someday" in reference to "n-word" being aceptable.  Why do you want it to be acceptable for you to say it?

I think the only way to go with a such a charged up word is to re-establish its meaning. A word is just a word, and its meaning is what's important, and that meaning is a slippery, shifty thing. You can't just ban a word out of existence... or you could, but I think it would be a shame and very 1984. What other words shall we ban? Words like denigrate that suggest blackness as a degradation? Instead, I think it's possible to reappropriate words. Gay people took "queer" and while it still has connotations of weird and different, it's meaning has shifted from insult to something that can be said with pride.
