Have you fapped?
Hadn't thought of that.
Whether I like it or not is irrelevant. The issue is whether the policy is being administered correctly or whether it's simply inadequate.
I'd like to know if most other universities allow soldiers who have changed their residence to another state that they are based in during their service will allow them to come back home and receive in state tuition.
It's no accident. It's systemic.
Now you're asking the right question. It would appear that at least MSU has a much more generous stance on it, but I would also be curious to see where other schools stand.
Unfortunately for UM, it doesn't much matter where other schools stand, they appear likely to be made an example of.
laconophilia is everywhere...
Good idea. I'll be in the Alison Brie nom nom nom thread if anybody needs me.
Sriously, I don't understand why if any university gets federal funds all veterans aren't entitled to in state rates no matter where their residence is. They earned that at the very least.
If this remains an issue, the Pres will sort it out. It's so great we finally have a president who treats our soldiers and veterans with the respect they deserve . For example:
Oversaw a $4.6 billion expansion of the Veterans Administration budget to pay for more mental health professionals.
Funded Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) with an extra $1.4 billion to improve veterans’ services.
Supported and signed Veterans Health Care Budget Reform and Transparency Act, which made more money available to enable better medical care for veterans.
Ushered through largest spending increase in 30 years for Department of Veterans Affairs, with money to go to improved medical facilities, and to assist states in acquiring or constructing state nursing homes and extended care facilities.
Not only reauthorized families of fallen soldiers to be able to visit when the body arrives at Dover AFB, but also provided funding for it. Ended the media blackout on coverage of the return of fallen soldiers.
Provided active combat troops with better body armor.
Created Joint Virtual Lifetime Electronic Record program for military personnel, in order to improve the quality of their medical care.
Put an end to the Bush-era stop-loss policy that kept soldiers in Iraq/Afghanistan beyond their enlistment date.
Created the Green Vet Initiative, which provided special funding to the Labor Department to provide veterans with training in green jobs.
Initiated and signed a recruitment and employment plan to get more veterans into government jobs.
Signed the Military Spouses Residency Relief Act, which ensures that spouses of military personnel who are forced to move because their spouse is posted for military duty will be able to avoid state taxes in their temporary residence.
Issued an Executive Order to improve access to mental health care for veterans, military personnel and their families.
RIP this thread...
Standard operating procedure I'm afraid. I have a cousin who went to West Point. She graduated sixth in her class at west point academically. Applied to grad school at scUM. She got turned down. This was before the affirmative action law suit a few years back. She is now 18 months away from going back to West Point to teach math.
Just as deplorable, her brother still wears his U of M shit. I said to him: "How can you wear that shit, knowing they discriminated against your sister? His response: "Athletics and Academics are different things."
Your cousin (the brother) should be taken out back.
If you were so stupid to not realize that then I don't want you with a gun/any military equipment in your hands.
Because nearly every college students gets some form of federal subsidy and universities are funded primarily by states and each state funds them differently.
I'm not saying that Vets shouldn't get good/more educational benefits/GI Bill whatever it is you get but if you let people get in-state anywhere it could have an effect on funding and incentives and end up unduly hurting some universities or raising tuition on other students.
Not clear how affirmative action comes into play here. How was she discriminated against? For being a Vet? They wouldn't admit her because she was a vet?
Seems reasonable to me. If you are paying state taxes in Georgia, why should you get in-state tution in Michigan.
Dude, there is no difference between UM-Dearborn and your degree from UM-Ann Arbor. Both of them just say The University of Michigan at the top. Walverines have been telling us that for years!
Yep. Now they're all denying the Dearborn affiliates faster then judas told Pontious Pilot he didn't know who the hippy was carrying the large piece of wood.
Good points... Also What do you have to do to re-establish residency? Can you start the process prior to discharge?
These people in Ann Arbor hate the military.
