Subject: My goodness just don't donate. I'm not donating, but I have more respect for her than I do for a someone bitching on this board
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

Many of these posts are wrong about law school, to begin with. Professional schools (like law schools) in the UC system are now almost as expensive as private schools, even for residents. They are on a different tuition system than the undergrad schools. And there aren't Cal Grants for law school! People are just making shit up. This dancer did live at home and go to a local state college, FWIW. Maybe no one should do an expensive hobby like Irish dance on the chance that years down the line they might want to spend the money on professional school? Even if Irish dancing helps you get into one of those top professional schools?

Seriously, you all sound catty and jeolous. This isn't a millennial hoping to for a free ride with no work,it's someone who has worked hard for years, went to college on the cheap and did extremely well even while dancing at the top of the sport, and now has a great opportunity. As I said, I won't be donating because I save my charitable dollars for actual charities, but it doesn't bug me she is doing this. Just don't donate!
