Don’t pay full price for college! We are getting ripped off, big time — in fact, much worse than I thought.
There are some things that are known to a certain group of professional class people, but not known to the wider society. Some of these Open Secrets are jaw dropping. Commenter Hardscrabble Farmer brought us a gem:
I live not far from a 200 year old New England Junior Ivy.I happen to be acquainted with two people who were/are in the office of admissions.
I learned from him (Ed. one of the admissions officers) that while the tuition for native born Whites was 38K, the tab for foreign nationals was roughly 6K and for NAM’s it was gratis. Your average middle class White family does not know this; they have been told that extreme favoritism towards foreigners and minorities is a racist myth.
The good news — increasing diversity means decreasing revenues. Most of these fancy pants colleges don’t have Harvard sized endowments, and depend on the poor white suckers for their inflated salaries and 100% scholarships for the diversity.
Don’t go to the private colleges if you have to pay full price, or even a quarter price! I went to a fancy pants private college, but I did it as a “return to college student” and paid about 3000 a semester and lived off campus. Moreover, I used college to get highly proficient at Russian in 2 years and then go on to the US Army Reserves as a star Russian linguist. So I was always a savvy consumer of higher education.
But we have to warn the families of graduating high school students — these colleges are practicing extreme economic discrimination against whites. But if don’t go to them, they’ll have nothing. THey’ll go out of business.
Anyone visiting colleges should ask the admissions officers and/or deans what is the mean and median tuition that the foreign students pay, the mean and the median tuitions blacks and Hispanics pay and the mean and median tuitions that white Americans pay. Watch the color go out of their fat fed liberal faces as they struggle to weasel out of these very specific questions, to which they KNOW the answers.
Here’s Farmer’s college admissions story in full:
I live not far from a 200 year old New England Junior Ivory.I happen to be acquainted with two people who were/are in the office of admissions. The previous director was told to increase the diversity of the student body. As the numbers of new students who met that criteria were admitted, there was a corresponding funding deficit. In the first year it was 1 Million, twice that the second year and by the third year when quotas had been met or exceeded as per the Board of Directors instructions, the College found itself in the hole to the tune of 6 million dollars- the first time the school had been in the red in its history. The Director of Admissions- whom I know casually through our sons- was asked to resign or to face termination for the financial impact his admissions policy had created. I should mention that he is a very liberal, very White man who not only believed he was doing exactly as he had been asked, but that it was a good thing.
He was then replaced by his subordinate, a foreign national to whom I sell firewood, pork and chicken. He and I have had some very interesting conversations and the last time I dropped by with two cords of wood, he told me about his position, having replaced the last director of admissions. He said he faced an impossible task- continue to accept a growing stream of diversity addmissions which meant heavy discounts, and at the same time staunch the financial losses.
When I pressed him on the amount of mixing between the traditional student body and the newer diverse groups on campus he aswered franklly. “Not much.”
I learned from him that while the tutition for native born Whites was 38K, the tab for foreign nationals was roughly 6K and for NAM’s it was gratis.
I expect this institution to struggle with this problem for the forseeable future because it is obviously not about logic or reason- no one is actually celebrating the diversity, they are rather enduring it. It clearly isn’t about making a a profit, it isn’t even about remaining solvent, so there is no financial upside to it. In fact it isn’t even about making America a better place because citizens are forced to subsidize foreign nationals at their own detriment- in slots and in tuition costs.
It is like watching one of the episodes in Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds in real time. It’s tantamount to buying a beautiful old home and then systematically taking a wrecking bar to it as a means of improving it.
Oh well, as long as everyone feels good about themselves, I guess.
