it's being a poor grad student. I received my "Notification of Assessment" from BC Student Loans today, and I'm approximately six thousand dollars short of what I need. Did you know that the maximum given is the same for undergrad and grad students? Freaking ridiculous if you ask me. FYI student loan geniuses, grad school is WAY MORE FREAKING EXPENSIVE THAN YOUR GARDEN VARIETY UNDERGRAD!!!!!!!! I'm applying for positions at the library of one of the affiliate university colleges on campus. They're looking for a few people for 6-10 hours a week. I really REALLY did not want to work during grad school but hey, what's a poor student with a maxed out credit card who can't get a line of credit to do? My boyfriend seems to think robbing a bank is a bad idea. I say he is no fun. What could possibly go wrong?
