re: I used to be fat. Now I'm fit. - Fratastic423
Depending in how much weight you lost, you may be out of luck. I lost about 20 lbs and the tailor laughed at me trying to get my suits altered. Nothing he could do about them ...

[quote]They should guarantee them 4 years at the university no matter what and if they aren't good enough to be on the team, then that scholarship doesn't count towards your total that's allotted by NCAA. If they did that, and ensured that they would take care of medical for any injury suffered duri...

[quote]TOPS was also seen as a way to cut down on the "brain drain", which is that a significant portion of the best and the brightest have been leaving Louisiana for educational and employment opportunities elsewhere. TOPS was instituted as a mechanism for Louisiana to retain it's own students,...

[quote]But what if a student who has rich family but is given none of his family's money wants to go to college using TOPS?

[quote]Are lower income students more intelligent and all they need is a chance?[/quote] I think that finances hinder some students from being successful in college. So if we are cutting the amount of money dished out to all students, it has a much greater impact on those who were struggling wit...

[quote]What's better?[/quote] I personally think it should move to the sliding scale need based award. Which we have been discussing may or may not be the most popular thing. [quote]f my tax dollars help fund TOPS, why should my child not benefit just because I'm successful?[/quote] This...

[quote]Which is why it needs to remain an equal award across all socioeconomic backgrounds.[/quote] And the program will stay equal in the end IMO, even though I don't think that is the best option. It is so ingrained in the education philosophy of LA that it isn't going to turn into a need base...

[quote]How could you possibly decide who should and shouldn't pay it back?[/quote] Not what I meant, sorry for the convoluted statement. I was saying that if it was a loan process, you are potentially making a situation worse on a segment of the population who try and use TOPS to better their li...

[quote]Again, how do you know what kind of money the kid has access to? My parents make a lot of money. They are also not great with their money, so their high income was of little help to me personally. I needed TOPS to pay for school just as much as anyone else did. I can guarantee I was not t...

[quote]Yep, let's make TOPS need-based and cut funding to the group that has the highest graduation rate even when adjusted for "privilege." Great idea. [/quote] Those students are going to college regardless if we give them money or not. Hell, I got TOPS and graduated in 4 years. If I didn't ...

[quote]Who is dropping out that would qualify to keep TOPS? Are you suggesting we remove the requirements to maintain it if we make it a loan?[/quote] Not enough to justify a counter argument to your strategy.

[quote]The greatest quality about TOPS is that it is need-blind. If you want to scale back the costs, then increase the academic requirements, but changing to a need-based program is ridiculous.[/quote] Why is that the greatest quality? It was designed to be need based but we cannot fathom helpi...
