                      You're probably right. I've gotten over my anger. It's fine. At least it's something.

                        If one is already there they ain’t transferring..

                        Incoming kids still have options. And concerns.

                        Think of it as crack.. your first couple hits are always free

                              20k for tuition must be per semester?

                                I guess the questions I'd have for the school would be this. If they can afford, for at least one year, to offer free tuition to about a quarter of the school, and knock $1000 a student off for the rest, why is that? Are the tuition charges artificially high and therefore they are able to do this? If not, and if they're going to be running a deficit, then to what extent do I or any other existing students have to pay for that deficit, either this year or in coming years. It fits the parable fine if it's just a gift someone else gets that I don't get. But it doesn't fit it at all if I have to pay for the gift.
                                That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.
