    It is really prestigious, I think its the best in the world for what I was applying for which was business maths and stats, also if you get a 21 or 1st your pretty much guaranteed a job at one of the big 4 right out of uni so it is pretty good. Yeah with foreign student fees, accommodation and spending money its like $50k a year same as the states. I could go virginia universities for pretty cheap, but I don't know if any of them are good. Yeah waitrose will be shit, Ill be making like $11 an hour though, which is pretty good. I made shit loads from selling Tom Ford and RLPL, enough so that I haven't had to work for the last 3 years and still buy great clothes and go out and take trips whenever I wanted to so waitrose will be much worse, but its steady income. I think Ill just work all winter, do my retakes in january so that ill have my entire summer to travel and do what I want. Maybe try do a powerlifting meet when I get my total to the 1000lb range and do more BJJ. Year out shouldn't be too bad.

    the Ivy's are a tad more than 50K a year. But it's also over 4 years while I believe the UK schools are over 3 years.

    keep in mind Harvard, Yale, Princeton and Stanford (and other elite schools) are using their endowment to waive tuition. for H, IIRC, your fam's income was less than 150k you paid nothing, YPS was 250k.

    English universities are 3 years, Scottish universities are 4.

    In England you don't really do any outside options and you are assumed to have more relevant knowledge because your A levels are quite focused. If you go to Scotland from an English school you can skip the first year (or from some Scottish schools) with decent grades, but you miss out the most fun year.

    I have quite a few friends from Uni who are from the States, even with increased living costs (flying home etc.) and a harsh exchange rate it worked out cheaper for them than most options in the US would have been.

    Fuji - sounds like you are getting yourself sorted. If you get serious about the BJJ why not a trip out to a Dojo somewhere? I have a friend who spent several months of a gap year training at a Gojuru Karate Dojo in Okinawa. He was pretty serious about it though - Spent a lot of time shoving his hands into bowls of hot sand and hitting cow carcasses with his fingertips. It sounded kind of horrific to me, but to each their own.


    Fuck. A bunch of FAO online publications I was using for my dissertation have just up and disappeared. The links I saved for them now lead nowhere.

    Oh wait. I was pissed off today on the drive to work. It rained last night and swarms of little bugs were everywhere. A perfectly fine morning and I did not want to open the sunroof on the Benz because of the bugs :(

    for Harvard, it's you pay nothing if your family's income is less than 60K, and then between 60K to 180K the expected contribution is 10% of income.

    as far as I know, this is the most generous policy, but the others are still very good.

    I'm looking at Cornell's, and it's the same 60K policy, and then they'll match the aid from all other Ivy's plus Stanford, MIT, and Duke.
