How many times have you heard a child who broke something, or a murderer, say "I didn't do it?"
When a reporter asked him whether he shot the President, he gave the evasive answer "I have not been charged with that" and then requested an attorney.
His time in jail is well-documented. They ques...

So you realize it doesn't count solely for A&M-College Station, but then in your calculation, you applied it solely to A&M-College Station.

The PUF allocations (the interest, not the principal) go to construction only, generally. Some schools have bigger construction needs than others, hence, UT Dallas [i]might[/i] get more PUF construction money than UT Austin in a given year.
The only near-constant is the excellence funding, from w...
