My bill for this semester is $5667. So for the year let's say $11,334.
$17627-$11334=$6295. What the heck else can I spend for school with that?
*Do they let me buy food (kroger, not meal plans) with that?
*Let's just say I spend on housing and tuition and some fees only. So I can expect a $6K refund check?
*Are they going to continue to "overreward" year after year regardless?
