Probably one of my favorite emails ever.
Hello. My name is Kayla and my brother actually sent me your recent entry about college financial aid at Stanford University. I was definitely interested because I know that college is going to be very difficult for me to pay for and, quite honestly, I’m really not looking forward to years of student debt. Anyway, I actually just wanted to thank you. I really never thought about how much scholarship money is probably never even given away. It’s really encouraging to hear that, with just a little effort, I could potentially come out of college with little to no debt at all.
Now, I’m not saying my grades are necessarily perfect, but I have goals. I’m actually planning on going to the University of Iowa as a pre-business major and then going to the Tippie College of Business so your advice, in all senses, is going to really help me out. So, like I said, I’d really like to thank you for opening up my eyes about everything.
