Neat visual demonstration that a^2 - b^2 = (a-b)(a+b) RT @HHSmath : Why difference of two squares? pic.twitter.com/DtOPfUT6Fv — Aatish Bhatia (@aatishb) February 13, 2015

Thanks for doing your bit in exposing this scam. Please don't pay attention to the people who would rather pick on individual victims, belittle the misery of their fellow humans for as long as it doesn't come knocking at their own doors, rather than questioning the all-powerful system.

Hi Tiffany, it seems that with the steep tuition fees and what all you've described, Uncollege is just another college program. In stark contrast, Swaraj University, an alternative 2 yr program in India (it's for Indians.. so no I'm not advertising this here) is soo basic, down to earth and operating on principles of gift economy. There are no tuition fees. The only economic costs involved work out to be cheaper than regular ordinary college. I could totally relate with the anxiety of not knowing what exactly you might do next, but want to just chip in that in many ways it's a good thing. You've demonstrated a financial literacy and prioritization skill that's very rare for your age. Its going to help you a lot in times to come. Stayed out of the student debt trap: all right!!
If you ever decide to come to India for volunteering, give us a buzz. http://www.swarajuniversity.org
And please check out http://enlivenedlearning.com/ .. some walkouts from the academia world have visited and video-documented some of the best path-breaking, educational experiments across the world. And these are setups that swim in sustainability.. meaning no over-expensive charges!

This isn't an individual issue, but a systemic one. Just for the information of all the people who want to play high-horse and lay blame anywhere.. make sure you're not picking on the victims while giving the perpetrators a free pass.

Please take a look at http://enlivenedlearning.com/ sometime. There are unconventional universities out there delivering amazing education and not putting students into lifelong debts.

First filter citizens need to apply to list of possible choices : Uses Black Money for Election Campaign? -> No.
Results after applying filter : 1 entry remaining: AAP.
That's it, no more comparisons possible.

Story
Introduction
Social theorist, feminist, Khoji. A curious person, compulsive tinkerer, status quo questioner and lifelong activist for all social causes. An extremely curious person and an engineer at heart, I've got a habit of seeing things from points of view and thinking in ways that others would normally never bother to. I prefer looking at the bigger picture in any situation, to analyse a chain of events rather than single occurrences. I've got a knack of absorbing all sorts of miscellaneous bits of information, and have become a jack-of-all trades of sorts. I'll go out of my way to help someone else, and that's one of the reasons I've started this blog. email me on nikhil [dot] js [at] gmail [dot] com
