This check just says it all!
Remember when I said I want my graduate school to just take my money NOW? Hmmm.. maybe I shouldn’t have wished for that day to come so quickly! The financial payments office just notified me that our accounts are open and that my portion of the first semester tuition plus fees is due: $23,000. With a VERY deep breath, I moved all the money in my savings account into my checking account and wrote the five-figured check. I have never ever written a check for so much money, and it’s a little sobering. Graduate school is official… the cash bleeding has begun.
The good new is that I have successfully paid for the first semester of graduate school with cash. One down… three more semesters to go.
