~~~ 不變的憤怒鳥

想去史丹佛

女兒從小就被我教不要有大志。那些什麼哈佛耶魯MIT等私立學校,都是貴個半死,就算她真能進得去,她的老爸也不想抵押房子給她念。她只要隨便念一下附近的州立大學就很好了。(學費大概差十倍)

可是,最近情勢有了改變。有一些超貴的一流學校開始劫富濟貧。家中收入不太高的,學費全免﹔再低一些的,連生活費都幫你出了。這些學校包括哈佛、耶魯、史丹佛等等。

她盤算著家裏也不算富有,史丹佛也不見得比哈佛差,天氣和食物又比較適合居住,所以就拿史丹佛當目標。

希望不大,可是看她那麼認真,最少不會是在高中鬼混四年,也是很不錯啦!

  1. 恭喜你!你女兒有大志。我沒去過哈佛耶魯MIT,但是帶孩子和妹的孩子去過Stanford三次!心裏期盼著他(她)們有人也以Stanford為目標,哪天能去
    讀!

    P.S. 建議大家聽Mr.高志斌的台灣講義(7/8日)。

  2. Well, even before the so-called Robinhood activity (劫富濟貧), those expensive schools gave out substantial scholarships to qualified candidates. In fact, most students got some forms of scholarship. (Also, the accepted candidate can bargain with the school about the amount of help before accepting the offer- say, for example, by playing Princeton against MIT!) However, even with the substantial scholarship (tuition free), the parents still have to cough up about $20,000~25,000 each year to cover living costs, books, travels,…). Comparing with (home) state university, that is the least amount the parents have to pay – for the Ivy accepted candidates usually would qualify for “all expenses paid" kind of scholarship in the home state university.
