What job would you take over a full ride to hys?

Postby hellohi » Fri Feb 22, 2013 11:50 am

Hypothetically if you had a full ride to hys (including living etc) what kind of job would you have to currently have to turn that down?
Obviously purely hypothetical but I'm interested to see what people think

If I had a full ride to HYS, why would I quit my job? I would keep working and pretend to go to class, show up for exams and straight P's my way out of Harvard.

Opera singer. (Like, one who has gigs at the Met, not one eking out a living in small backwater productions. Not that there's anything wrong with that, if that's your thing.)

TITCR. Hell if it's Yale, don't even pretend to read until second semester, download some old outlines, you may even get an H or two.

Marine biologist or ballet dancer. Or short story writer/novelist if that came with the guarantee I could pull it off.
