-Cornell COA = full sticker and according to their website it's 77k a year. I have some savings and family contributions that I can count on for 125k, which leaves about 105-110k to be debt financed.


"...A man refers to his Trust Fund as 'savings'"


Lol yea this always cracks me up on TLS.

"Savings" is the $4000 you scrapped working PT senior yr at the science library and tutoring lin algebra so you can couchsurf across italy for 2 wks after graduation

$120,000 is a mother fucking ESTATE. Its not "savings". You didnt "save" it, you were entrusted with it or granted it by a very wealthy patron.

The distinction, and what it implies about an individuals' financial security, is so often lost here, along with the dangerous linguistic and socio-economic repercussions of confusing $ on that scale


I apologize, I was just trying to provide the best possible representation of my financial situation so I could get the most useful advice.

Dude dont sweat it no problem. Its a generic issue, Ive made plenty of questionable statements on here. White kids from the burbs arent gonna get it anytime soon anyway.

You did a great job providing CoA and debt figures. So many threads fail to do so
