Just got mail from the admissions folks at the U of O school of management: they’re offering me a (partial, but substantial) scholarship.
Yay! Maybe this was a good idea after all! (I kid, I kid.)
Now I just have to get the rest of the financial stuff ironed out (RRSP withdrawals and a line of credit in case of emergencies). Last time I tried to talk to the folks at TD Canada Trust I must have come in right before lunch or something, because I couldn’t convince them to pay attention to me or their own materials, and I ended up giving up. As of a couple weeks ago, my stepmother manages a TD branch in Marmora, though, so I’ll probably just give her a call instead.
