Isn't the price of tuition at these school enough of a racket, let alone trying to guilt kids who will undoubtedly be taking out huge loans to cover a Georgetown education? Very surprised that was they way they went about trying to sell you on the school.
WOW! I just received my ASW login and saw the deadlines as well as the statement about the moral obligation to repay the Dean Tuition grants.....no words.
I don't mean to be a wet blanket on this policy bashing party, but wouldn't you feel a moral obligation? Someone who graduated from GULC and who is in a much better financial place donated money so that another student could have an opportunity that they might not otherwise be able to afford. If I accepted need aid I would eventually want to give money to the school in the hopes that I could better someone's life the way mine was. I was surprised by the bluntness of the statement as a "moral obligation," but I don't disagree with the sentiment.
