In reviewing the information on Meal Plans, among the options, I see these two listed (among other possibilities)
Gold Plan - $1726 per semester. The Gold Plan features 19 all-you-care-to eat meals a week at the Sadler Center RFoc or the Commons Fresh Food Company; 3 meals a day Monday Friday and 2 meals on Saturday and Sunday. If you would like to enjoy meal options at the Marketplace you may use one meal per meal zone in lieu of using your meal swipe at the all-you-care-to-eat locations. The Gold 19 Plan meals are set in meal zones and come with $150 Flex Points!
Gold 14 - $1726 - per semster. The Gold 14 Plan features 14 all-you-care-to eat meals a week at the Sadler Center RFoC or the Commons Fresh Food Company with limited 3 meals per day, when offered, and 1 per meal period. If you would like to enjoy meal options at the Marketplace, you may use one meal per meal zone in lieu of using your meal swipe at the all-you-care-to-eat locations. The Gold 14 Plan meals are set in meal zones and come with $175 Flex Points.
So, these both cost the same amount. Is the amount of flex points listed here ($150 for Gold and $175 for Gold 14 PER SEMESTER AMOUNTS?)
If they are per semester amounts, why would you choose the Gold 14 plan (which I hear is popular). It seems all you get is 25 bucks more flex money per semester and lose 5 meals per week x 15 weeks in a semester = 75 meals lost.
Am I reading this correctly? You get 75 fewer meals with Gold 14 in a semeseter in exchange for $25 more in flex points??
