From The Prospect:
So last week I finished my sophomore year of college. I got a little story to tell.
About two years ago today I was still in the midst of my college process. I was torn in between two schools: my second choice, Goucher College, and fourth, St John’s University. Unfortunately Goucher’s tuition (even after scholarship) was still too much for my parents to afford. They didn’t want me to have too many loans to pay when I graduate, so I had to cross it off. That left me with St. John’s at the end of my senior year of high school. It was a good school that I liked and visited that I wouldn’t need to pay board for. We were still working on an appeal letter for a scholarship I applied to, but that was the plan.
