@honey cowl We're a bunch of modern day Bob Cratchits around here.
@eraserface I think it depends on the size of the institution: a tiny school (or well-endowed) could make this a perk, but an R1 or R2 that graduates 5,000 ~ 10,000 students a year would have trouble affording even one per student.
@EM I also took it in 2008 and remember $75-ish being the cost, but I've memory dumped everything, including the difference between permutations and combinations and other math facts, out of my brain now.
Did the GRE used to cost less or am I just very oblivious?
@echolikebells Surely someone will archive it for the benefit of all humankind.
Thank you for sharing! I am very thankful for this site. You and Logan have really transformed the way I relate to money, emotionally. This article in particular was life-changing: http://thebillfold.com/2012/07/reader-mail-my-fathers-finances/ So thanks!
@Lily Rowan Ditto. I wouldn't work for them even if they did have reasonable expectations and were offering a reasonable salary. I also wouldn't associate with anyone who worked for them. Boycott 4lyf.
George Foreman got his start in LBJ's Job Corp. I've see his title weight (?) belt and this robe at the LBJ library: http://www.lbjlibrary.org/exhibits/artifact-of-the-week/george-foremans-warm-up-robe
@BillfoldMonkey I am such a YNAB fanatic it's unreal. I had no idea how to save until I learned about zero-based budgeting. Every 1st of the month I'd make glorious promises and move something to savings... and then tap it all back out on the 20th. I haven't done that in at least two months (personal record). Thanks YNAB! Congrats on getting back on the wagon. :)
@bgprincipessa This may be cheating (probably is cheating) but when I use ginger I just grate it. Ditto the garlic. I don't know if I would try that for the onion though because of the tear factor, so I'd probably just start the onion first and then let everything catch up.
