Definitely not exclusive but the only reason it seems like debt aversion is so rampant on TLS is because of these ppl chiming in saying they would take Full tuition at *insert random tier 3 school* over a T14 when in reality they arent even close to competitive. What is the point in even mentioning the T14 when your reaches are in the 40-60 range??
For the record, I wouldnt pay sticker at ANY school. Not because I think its an unwise investment, simply because it scares me. I am having to ease myself into the idea of paying 2/3 of sticker at HYS.
I see what you did there. Cute. Listen... I really wouldn't pay sticker. You have no idea what my situation is, or why I am debt adverse. But, I'll tell you now, it ain't because I am a low performer. (and yes, I know my GPA and lack of re-take make me a low performer)
How incredibly arrogant and condescending of you to slam me in the first paragraph and then agree with me in the second (while bragging, I might add). I look forward to your entry into the real world with the sadistic pleasure I take in seeing certain players get injured on the field.
Not at all referring specifically to you. If I was I would've quoted you. I was just pointing out the reason for the seemingly rampant aversion to debt on TLS. IIRC, you are somewhat non-trad with a wife and a somewhat stable career to return to. In your case of course debt aversion is of course understandable. I was referring more to the ppl who love to talk about how they would turn down
Harvard for a T50 full scholly b/c for some reason its "Huge" size has suddenly become disabling and ridiculous reasons like that.
I also was neither agreeing nor disagreeing with you. Again, just explaining the appearance of massive debt aversion and the silliness of it overall.
