The WUE scholarship basically waves all out of state fees. It was more affordable for my student to go to Montana thru this scholarship as opposed pay in state tution at ASU.
Welcome to Montana!"
Whaaah GrizinAZ? You TEACH in AZ and you can't spell waive, afford, his or tuition? My condolences to your school district.
I am so sorry that I misspelt a few words in my last post. Let me educate you why I misspelt a few of those words.
1. Did you ever think I was using a cell phone when I wrote that message? You probably didn’t realize I wrote that post in 2 minutes on my short 10 minute lunch break. I’m sure you have perfect grammar when you text.
2. I'm a HS band dude (as you can guess I could give a F if I had bad grammar at that point). Sure I could have reread the post and corrected all of my typos, but I didn’t think it mattered too much since I’m posting on ‘f’ing Egriz. I teach 8 music classes in the spring and 9 in the fall. To put this in perspective to you, the average high school teacher teaches what is called a 5/5’s schedule (which means they teach 5 classes). Have you ever had to organize 550 students between 4 jazz bands, 4 concert bands and 1 marching band? I’m at school at 6 am and leave at 9 pm 90% of the time and work every Saturday. I’m sorry I didn’t take enough time to proof.
3. The whole reason I posted was to help some kid’s dad find his son money because college is really expensive and being an out of state student is WAY more expensive. How much money have you helped a graduating senior find lately? The 60+ seniors who just graduated from my band program received over $2,000,000 in scholarships this past year. I am not afraid to call schools and find money for kids who need it. You should give it a try, it’s kind of fun and my student's parents love me!
66, if you have a problem with teachers why don’t you get off your ass and move to a big city and help educate some of those poor kids with your fancy knowledge. Apparently you are an amazing SOB! Remember you get what you pay for. When you want someone to pay for a $50,000-$100,000 teaching certificate (college isn’t free), you better pay them more than $33 k per year, or you are not going to get too many applicants. I made more money working at Denny’s and pouring concrete to put myself through college. 66, I will do my best to type every one of my posts into a word document and proof it prior to sending out a response from here on out. (That’s sarcasm if you haven’t figured it out.)
Thank you and sorry for my rant….
Now the whole point to my original post…..
Sorry I didn’t reply in a timely manner. Make sure you call UM and ask around to see if there is any work studies or extra scholarships that your son can apply for. His GPA is a little low, but his SAT scores are ok. Don't be afraid to call and ask for help. Remember if you do not ask for help, you will not receive it. Also, don’t be afraid to ask admissions if there is and money left through the WUE program. If there is some money left, he may be a prime candidate since it’s so late in the process.
Good luck to you and your son!
