Well, you heard the practical advice, now I will give you the "friend" comments:

That sucks!

You should have gotten on...they must have made a mistake

You obviously were way smarter than those evaluating your submission and they missed the wonderful yet subtle nuances in your submission!


Hang in there!

I think that it helped me in college for that final "skim" of my notes right before essay exams.  I was able to read over 40 pages in a few minutes and I always ended up remembering some little tidbit that helped me.

How did it go?

I did a speed reading program as a child, and I read really fast (compared to other people).  it really helped for reading comp on the LSAT. 

I have considered doing EyeQ too.  Why not?

I think that someone giving you a scholarship has a right to indicate how it should be spent.  I also think that you will never get another one if you raise too much hell over this issue. 

Why not ask a friend who does need supplies from the bookstore to give you the cash and you will purchase them with the scholarship money?  That way, you get what you want, without ruffling any feathers.

It's not like you are going to sue your school, so I doubt legality matters here.

Law Dog: I agree with you.  As for the comment about "being in a higher tax bracket at retirement" - how could that be if you aren't working (you are retired, right)

The whole purpose of not making you pay taxes when you deposit the money is because you would be in a higher bracket while working, and a lower one later.

Also, if you make $125K a year before taxes, you will likely own a home, which is another way to decrease your taxes (interest on the mortgage is deductible).  You might also have some children (more deductions)

I think that the good pre law advisors do tell students to heavily prep for the LSAT. Mine is an idiot (thrown into the job when the preprofessional advisor got overloaded). 

I am just saying that when something is really great, everyone knows it.  For instance, most law students (and lawyers) use Blacks.  Its a well known and good, useful product.  The rest of the stuff seems kind of hit and miss.

My bigger point is that I want in on the piles of money that get paid for stuff like this.  !!!!
