is it really foolish though, if you think of it in relative terms? even if she does take up this seemingly outlandish proposition, i'll still argue that she is not a fool. for one thing, we've talked about it and it's clear to me that she's aware that this isn't going to guarantee a 180, and frankly, she doesn't care. her family has more than enough money to dispense this requested amount without second thought - and the 2 hours she is planning to spend with him a week is very little (she's not doing 3) compared to the total amount she is already putting in right now, which is how i've come to understand the way she sees her situation. it might sound odd, but the best way to explain the way she sees it is the way someone else might see a 1 or 2 hour weekly lesson that's $40 an hour from a tutor who claims can help his/her students obtain a vast improvement in their score.

Let us know if she gets a 180.If she does, I will consider moving there, studying with this jedi master, and going through another cycle.

PennyLane invented sweet. She has the patent on it. I tried to act sweet one time and she sued me.

Sounds like a scam. No one can gurantee a 180.
