    Thieves!

    As you know I go to UCDavis and the cost of tuition is enormous for someone who doesn't get any financial aid. $7K tuition and about probably $20K a year living. Today my mom called and said she got an phone call from someone from UCDavis. The conversion started out ok then it quickly move into donation. This one girl works for UCD and they called Alumni and parents asking for donation. My mother asked how much is she asking for. Get this...$2K. That's like one quarter worth of tuition right there!!!! What the **** were they thinking?! If my parents had that money to donate, wouldn't the wanna give it to me first!? Morons...

    Just wait until you graduate; then you'll be getting the calls yourself. I fled the continent to escape the Berkeley kids' phone calls. (I did pony up the $400 or whatever to become a life member of the alum association, though. You get this spiffy magazine and everything.)

    But yeah, Arnie hasn't quite figured out how to fix the horrible budget problems that were ALL THE DEMOCRATS' FAULT, so for a while longer the schools (even the public ones) are going to have to beg for money.

    Hey I read it in the school paper they are going to fix it by simply... raising tuition. It's not that bad but UCD is full of dumbasses and students vote for worthless crap and that drives tuition higher. Morons....

    *tackles Durf*

    What? Oh, sorry, I thought you were calling for backup.

    *kicks Durf a few times while he's down*

    Anyways, yeah. Tuition sucks. It keeps getting worse and worse up here. I'm glad I got out when I did, even if I might be going back soon. Ugh. :scared:

    6 months. That is how long the UC sytem give you to find a job before they hound on you day and night. I had to tell them I was in grad school until 04 for them to stop calling. Geez. they were worst than credit card collectors... or so I heard.

    6 MONTHS!??!

    Vanderbilt's pack of thugs were already trying to extort money from me 6 MONTHS BEFORE graduation! And that's on top of the 100k or so they milked my parents for in tuition.

    You could pretend that you've recently moved in and that they must have the previous owners numbers.

    Makes my telemarketing job seems like nothing.

    We ask for donations from $15~$100+, although only 12% or so actually go to the actual fundraiser that we are calling for.
