    I expected these crazy fees but my question is this: Why does it seem as if the school that ask for the least amount of extra information charge me the most??? I just gave NYMC $100 to tell them that I go to Penn State and to confirm my address. I mean come on.....Ok, I'm done now.... :eek:

    I have decided to enroll myself in the experiments at my undergrad. Whatever they wanna do to me, bring it on! Atleast i get money out of it.

    Too bad I consider it immoral (atleast in MY case where my only initiative is finance) to donate eggs. :(
    No flaming please, it's been a rough day already.

    you won't get the money in time anyways - i think it takes a few months before you get any cash. i also just found out that you can donate plasma and get $25 bucks a pop (up to eight times a month!!) woohooo, needle pricks here i come!

    I am trying to get into one expriment that pays $12,000 for smoking sigarettes (ultra light, not weed :D) for 6 months and going to the center for the tests.

    School just need your money. They are desperate for money right now since there have been cut offs in the budgets.

    LOL. You should put on your secondary applications that you were economically disadvantaged because of secondary application fees. :)

    my dad isn't going to be ecstatic about all these debits I'm putting on my credit card...
    oh well, might as well go shopping with it too as long as he's paying for it. :D

    yeah..i get really annoyed when i have to give the schools $$$ just to let them know my name and address. i feel like......im being robbed

    i heard you get like $300 by donating your white blood cells. my friend did it once...30 minutes procedure...and you walk out with CASH. too bad you can only do it once every six months and two times your whole life.

    This is one way schools make money. It costs a whole lot more than tuition to train a physician!
