1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    I think that Penn was the last school to go this model about a year ago.

    Penn was last? Typical [​IMG].

    This essentially matches my understanding. The one exception is your final statement. I believe that all Ivies now offer grants exclusively. In other words, financial aid, while syill need-based, is never repaid. I think that Penn was the last school to go this model about a year ago.


    The Ivy's are using a family income model, for example, if your family income is less than $60K, then you will not be required to borrow money as part of your financial aid package. You will receive a combination of other aid which might include grants or work-study. The family income amount varies by school. And, depending upon income, families may still have a family contribution.

    As for athletic scholarships, the Ivy's do not have athletic scholarships. But, if you are a difference maker athlete, such as a hockey player at Cornell, and you can get in on the academic merits, the school will find a way to make it affordable.

    I can't believe Esquire couldn't even get a half decent store to pick up the prize. I'd rather have $1,000 at Saks than $10,000 from Kenneth Cole.

    Dan sounds like an ass. I hope Foo wins.

    Agreed, he sounds like a douche!

    I have some vague familiarity with the scene.

    I wonder what the other $20 000 of the $30 000 prize consists of? There's no way fashion week seats cost that much, right?

    I'd love to add Mafoofan on Facebook now, but am too shy. I'll stick to being a SF fan. [​IMG]

    People might be taking this too literally, he may have received the financial aid based on hardship and prefers to think of it as a basketball scholarship because he feels self conscious about his background. Let's be charitable.
    I wasn't responding about the contestant. I haven't even read the Daily News article. I was responding to the poster who said:
    They offer sports scholarships all the time. I know people who have gotten full rides to schools like Princeton, Colgate, etc...

    What'll be really fun is when you have to pay taxes on the "value" of the Kenneth Cole prize. :p

    I think this is the funniest observation of the bunch. Foo - you're going to have to pay income tax on this shit. Should you persevere over Dan "basketball scholarship at Columbia" T, this contest is going to COST you money.

    You can decline the prize and not pay income tax on it. Just accept all your payment in glory.

    He should just trade in the $20,000 or whatever in Kenneth Cole in to them for $15,000 back. Just give them a premium and they would probably accept the deal.

    Do Esquire know how close they make the name for this contest(BDRM) to BDSM? Maybe intentional for fun like Metallica S&M album?
