Oppy music and Financial Aid
Thanks to everyone who came out to the Special Opp’s show @ the Knitting Factory last week. It was great to see all of your smiling faces and a few people I haven’t seen in awhile. The last obstacle was removed from me attending CalArts. I received my funding and everything is A-OK, and on course for enrollment. Admissions costs look very daunting this day and age, and they seem way out of your reach financially (Tuition is almost double the cost of when I attended school in 1997); but then, the J. Irvine Foundation steps in and saves the day! I’ve had to think long and hard about whether accumulating these expenses and debt are worth it, and I came to the conclusion they are. My friend Dr. Rod Oakes told me that this upper degree will benefit me in ways that I can’t imagine right now, but I should trust that I would definitely glean benefits in the long run.
