Today, I called my dad to ask why my university tuition had not been paid. He said that "my school was too expensive and he couldn't afford it." He then asked me if I would take in his mail while he was away. He was taking his new wife to Hawaii, apparently it's beautiful this time of year. FML

Do you have any idea what college costs compared to a trip to Hawaii?

In Canada, we are fortunate in that the government subsides our tutition and then lends us some addition money, OSAP since he is in Ontario, (depending on our income + parents' if we live with them) if need be. Considering it is Oct., you must have 1) Have your fees deferred because you are getting OSAP (This is what most of us do, including myself atm) or 2) Your father payed the min. amount required for you to not get kicked out. So even though you got screwed over by your dad, its not so bad in that you can still go to the bank after you get a job and get a line of credit + a credit card if need be to pay it off. Btw, tutition for a year of a regulated program at U of Toronto without res., meal plan, or books and if you are a Canadian student is about $6000ish ($500 per 0.5 credit + some crap fees for stuff half of us don't use which you can opt out some). Deregulated programs add about $4000ish more for a final sum of $10,000ish. It is not as bad as the prices in other places but it is not exactly pocket change for a student either. Good Luck.
