I wish I would have done that, but only if I knew that there was a work study student that could count it. My school is tiny (about 150 students) and we barely get any work-study hours (I got 4 hours for December).

Most decent Uni's have a waiting list to get in - they should have kicked this guy to the curb and accepted someone that wasn't a whinny little git.

Don't like the price - someplace there's a paper hat or shovel with your name on it.

He made their job needlessly difficult, and accomplished nothing. Everybody already knows tuition is expensive.

I hope he has a decent major and isn't wasting that $14K.
