Subject: I agree with you that the virtue of hard work is disappearing.
In reply to: So confused! 's message, "So can someone help me - I received a link to a gofundme page for a previous World Champion dancer to help her travel to law school (she also used promo material from LOTD in her ad)-is that how it works now? Is that what this generations is all about? Let's ask other people to pay our way. Get a loan, go where YOU can afford" on 22:35:57 06/25/17 Sun

In Irish dance we all know really hard workers, and we also know dancers who weren't committed but transferred for results... and got them (because politics beats good dancing sometimes).

Part of the reason dancers are using Go fund me nowadays is because we're being priced out of dancing.

As far as this girl with law school... you're right. You don't need to go across the country to an ivy-league school. If you can't afford it, you need to fit your expectations to your resources.

  • It's begging plain and simple. Expect other people to pay your way rather than working hard to do it yourself. Take some time off and work to save the money or take out loans like everyone else. Why should other people be funding your education and your move across the country?! Do you know how many law schools are in the Bay Area where she lives?

  • Pretty sure somewhere like Stanford or USC have good law schools. As she is now 26 she also qualifies for better CA grants and aid as an older student. Maybe shouldnt have had those top level Gavins new every year (NT) -- Sorry no sympathy, 07:02:50 06/26/17 Mon
