Last semester, I went through the transfer process to get out of here, and at the end of it, I was trying to decide between UConn, Columbia, and Bard. I didn't really like the atmosphere at Columbia when I visited, but Bard had overenrolled its freshmen and waitlisted all of its transfers. My community college offered me a scholarship if I stayed a semester to finish my degree (never really cared about it before; I was always just planning on transferring after two years), and as the scholarship was very substantial and as my bank account was very not, I decided to wait a semester before going to Bard. Towards the end of this semester, I found out that the scholarship I'd been promised was now in jeopardy, and after spending the last three weeks fighting for my life and politicking to hold onto this thing, I found out yesterday that it's over, and there's nothing else I can do. There is no more scholarship, and I'm on my own. I also just wasted the entire semester, and because I thought I had my finances pretty well taken care of, I hadn't been looking for additional scholarships or planning on loans anywhere near as big as they're going to be now. (In case anyone's feeling litigous, the school's kept separate from the school foundation and its endowment, and if I caused any more trouble, it would probably just result in a number of people I care about getting hung out to dry.) So, once again, I'm fucked. PS: anyone remember my car? The one that this happened to? The one that did this to me? It is now trying to kill me, and I need to buy a new one.
