<p>My daughter is a freshman and in the school's honor's program and is just very overwhelmed with all the work. She is staying up late every night just to keep up with the reading and the 5 page papers, 15 page papers, 40-50 calc problems, tests, etc. </p>
<p>She works about 7 to 10 hours a week as an assistant to a professor who keeps her very busy. She never has time to do homework when she is at her job, as she sees other kids do. (Like a friend of hers who works in the print shop, and does homework whenever there is no printing to be done.) </p>
<p>School is just getting to be too much for her. She is so tired.
I told her to tell her boss that she needs to reduce her hours to about 5 a week, or needs to quit completely. Her boss loves her and has said she doesn't know what she'd do without her. I'm afraid she is going to find out real soon.</p>
<p>My daughter insists that she gets a break on the room and board bill (she is there on a full tuition scholarship, we only pay room and board) because of her job. She thinks if she quits, we will get a $1,000 increase. I don't know where she got that from. I told her I think that work study is just for the pocket money, and has nothing to do with the bill.</p>
<p>Can anyone verify this for me?
And I read in other posts that she might not get offered work study for next year if she didn't work this year. Is that also true if she has to quit her job? I think next year won't be as overwhelming as this year is and she might be able to swing all the work plus a job. Or she can find an easier job. Next year.</p>
