Yup, twatwaffle is a new one for me, and I love it!

If it's Belgian twatwaffle, well that's just incredibly vulgar all over the galaxy.

Boo my fu*king hoo.

So, we're gonna be out two less attorneys, next Sept.?

Wake me up when we can call it a depression.

In the fiscal year that ended June 30, Harvard's endowment posted an 8.6 percent return and grew to $36.9 billion. However, the school lost 12.7 percent on its U.S. stock portfolio and 12.1 percent on its foreign equity portfolio during that time.

That means we're paying them less till we get our money back, right?
...right?

With Obama in the White House soon, he'll give Harvard a financial bailout.

I'm still partial to douchenozzle and cockholster.

Why wouldn't they just ask bush like everyone else is? He seems incapable of saying no.

Harvard is a bigger scam than high priced Scotch.
 
2008-11-11 02:04:45 PM  
President Drew Faust said Monday the school is looking at ways to cut spending and will review compensation costs, which account for nearly half of the budget.

HALF!? HALF!? ok, HALF of their budget is going to payroll, then they have some seriously farked up priorities.

My daughter is a junior in high school and wants to be a dr. Just for shiats and grins we looked up Harvard. It was, roughly, 60 grand a year.

She's going to a Texas school. Any suggestions????We are new at this and have no idea what to do....Meeting with a counselor in Jan.

Yes, one question mark is enough.

FTFA - President Drew Faust said Monday the school is looking at ways to cut spending and will review compensation costs, which account for nearly half of the budget.

Now if only there were some pact he could make...

Weaver95: HALF!? HALF!? ok, HALF of their budget is going to payroll, then they have some seriously farked up priorities.


I agree. It should be more like 85%.

Earpj: She's going to a Texas school. Any suggestions????


Tech or Baylor for normal kids.

The liberals have taken over UT - even if you get admitted, there is no guarantee she will actually get into the school she wants.

Rice if she has the academic firepower to handle it.

Insert A&M joke here.

Yes, but what, we lose, in attorneys, we'll gain, in commas, so it's all, good.

I certainly wouldn't think so. A university has professors/instructors, administrative and support staff, and student workers (lots of GAs at grad school). Since a university is essentially providing a service, it seems entirely reasonable for compensation to make up half or more of the budget.
