i wanted to be either a scientist or a lawyer. now i get to be both. life is good.
I always wanted to be a marine biologist. I was obsessed with sharks. In a way, I guess I still am
and can our first vacation please be to see the great whites jumping out of the water in South Africa? although that is probably old news for you
no its not borrowing on margin.
margin is where you can lose the principal, plus your house, etc.
again, there is no interest payable until after you graduate. youre not spending any of the principal here. it's 3 years worth of government money that you can invest -- i didnt say put it in the stock market -- even simple interest of 3.5% is still free money.
I'm no financial wiz, but I don't see how this can work. The interest isn't payable until after you graduate, but it continues to accrue. For 2006-2006, the rate was 4.7%. I don't know of any safe investments that would pay more than that. The best 18 month CD rate i could find was 4.86%. I'm sure there are plenty of risky investments that could pay a better %, but you'd be crazy to risk money that isn't yours on an investment that could fail. Then again, if you're stupid enough to do something illegal like using student loans for investments, while in LAW school, then you probably wouldn't mind the risk.
I have a create-your-own major that's roughly 1/3 business (specifically, health care systems), 1/3 history (medicine focus) and 1/3 sociology (medicine focus). (Hmm, I'm starting to see why all my friends are surprised I'm not applying to med school.)
Would schools take an extra addendum by email? And how do you ensure it gets with the rest of your app? I know schools are different, just wondering if anyone has sent an extra piece of their app AFTER submitting it and how this was accomplished. Thanks.
