Lol, quick back of the envelope calculation:

If total tuition revenues for a class of 200 x $45,000 =$9 mil, and we bought 9 mil. $1 tickets

With jackpot winning odds of as about 1 out of 195 million, it means p=.045 of us winning the jackpot. Of course, this doesn't include anything about the lesser winnings.

ETA: So I say "let it ride!"

Also, you're four times as likely to get killed driving 2 miles back and forth from the gas station than to win the jackpot.

We all applied to and got into a school where 85% of applicants are rejected. We are obviously 1) people willing to defy the odds 2) lucky in some way. I'm confident we'd win, whats life without rolling the dice?

Also, I have a screenshot to prove it but am unable to upload it (thanks a lot, work), but I caught Dean Pless from UIUC lurking in our humble thread. :P

yeah right mitigated by one time payout... You've been working for 9 years before getting fired and your total debt has increased and you've paid none of it off! Here's 10k that should cover everything!

you mean down at the bottom where it says "Users browsing this forum: joemoviebuff, kcfella, kelc213, meno22, Muenchen, Non-Chalant1, pkw, quetzal_bird, R.R. Raskolnikov, rbarcelo9, rk90, Sentry, Soda Mixer, sojuteacher, The Stig and 18 guests" ? I am pretty sure that is just within the "Board index » Class Forums » TLS Class of 2014 Forum" forums, as when I go to a different class of '14 thread, it shows the same people...

Seems pretty reasonable, given both how important finances/financial aid are to the process and updates during the cycle (most notably, the new LRAP).

I think twice would be enough. I have no idea what people will ask her in 2 weeks that they can't ask now.

TBF, this is the first crack that the 2nd round admits have had at K. Varg, and I assume that a pending third round would also like one. People don't always want to read the transcripts and they might have a unique question.

His stud fees are very reasonable for a stallion of his breeding.

True. It's a lot out of pocket but you'll get a good return on your investment.

My financial advisor has informed me that Bils-babies are a good long-term asset for my portfolio. Thoughts?
