We have a decision on the college!! After a careful selection process befitting how the pope is chosen, we seem to have come up with an answer.
I can’t wait to talk to my dad tomorrow morning about it. I have a vague idea how the conversation will go…
He: “So, she is going to the college near home”?
He: “But did you not say that would be totally free?”
Me: “Yes. But she is not going there”
He: “Oh! Okay. Is she going to the one that is giving maximum scholarship?”
He: “No? The one with the next highest scholarship?”
Me: “Not that one either”
He: “Hmmmm. So how much is this college giving where she is going?”
Me: “Actually this is the college that is giving no scholarship?”
A few moments of silence…
He: “What was the highest scholarship she was getting?”
Me: “I think the highest was $25K per year”
More silence as he struggles to multiply 25000 by 67 (exchange rate of dollar to rupee)
… that is when he is going to kill me 🙂
