Wuh-Woh for Amherst

From Amherst’s admissions site (yeah, thesis stuff):

Some of the Amherst College information printed in the most recent edition of the “Kaplan/Newsweek How To Get Into College Guide” is incorrect. Please be assured that Amherst College is NOT closing from 2008 to 2012. The College is consulting with Kaplan/Newsweek to remedy the error.

I can just imagine the sheer hell of working in that admissions office right now with the helicopter parents pounding the phones, screaming “WHAT DO YOU MEAN AMHERST IS CLOSING FOR FOUR YEARS?!!”

(Also, just because this is a kick in our balls, “Beginning in the 2008-2009 academic year, Amherst College will replace the loan component of all financial aid awards with scholarship aid. This represents a huge financial commitment by the College and is expected to aid middle income families applying to Amherst. Read more.”)

    Holy frick, Holly. This post was amazing (enough that I had to post it on The House). I’m laughing my ass off in Minneapolis and I’m sure everyone in Billsville that I sent it to is doing the same.Also, i think it’s bullshit that Williams isn’t following suit since somehow I managed to graduate with three times their maximum debt load…because Williams is so poor.

    The argus just reported that under butterfield in the early 60s, Wesleyan was mad rich, and was considering making the school tuition free. What people don’t understand at this school is that in order to have scholarship aid like that, in order to have most of the things we have, we need BIG MONEY DONATIONS. It irks me when people get annoyed that we cater to the rich…. if we didn’t we would even have the loans. Or any of the buildings you see on campus for that matter.
