We are so lucky in Scotland.  Tuition fees are paid.  My daughter gets a bursary of around 500 quid a month, because she is doing nursing. 

I get about 200 quid per month. So I get my fees paid and they give me a little spending money. Very Happy

She went to Princeton, which just makes me fainting.

Laura's loaded. I think she's part of Welsh royalty.

I'm not loaded! Where on earth did you get that idea from?!? The way the exchange worked with Oxford was that it was cost neutral - I paid my Oxford tuition fees and got a semester in Princeton in exchange. Bloody good deal for me!

That's how it would work if I went to study abroad.

If you were to actually go to Princeton (or any of the Ivys - Harvard wub, Yale, Brown, etc), they would meet 100% of your need for aid. However actually trying to get in costs an arm and a leg.

Hey, leave me alone. It's a pretty amazing college. If only getting into their law school wasn't so damn hard...

I feel quite privileged at having being funded through my undergrad, and post grad. At least I can teach, but I really don't want to.  Frown

I don't look up to her and she doesn't expect it but I respect her for her massive wallet.

I'm thinking I should just apply for PhDs in the states, hard to get into but if you get a place then the money goes with it!

Ha so true. The semester I was at Princeton, the football team beat Harvard and Yale in the same season for the first time in about 15 years, so there was a massive bonfire with effigies of Harvard and the Yale bull dog on it and a big parade and stuff. Awesome Smile
