Iamsohooked, your post hit it on the nail. Yes, your neoghbour's kids did great at school and deserved to get an Ivy education. BUT... your son is a valedictorian. I'm pretty sure it was NOT very easy to him to be the BEST in school. It took lot of time, efforts and determination on his part to get there.Originally Posted by Iamsohooked
My hat also goes off to you for being able to support your family of SEVEN and not relay on government help for anything.
You said in another post :"My kids didn't have the choice of a 4-year ivy league or private college - it is out of our league."
So in your case why were they PUNISHED for NOT getting the same aid jist because you and your husband SACRIFISED a lot by living frugaly and supporting your family? Is THIS fair? To you, to your husband, to your children?
It is NOT. Period.
