I think it's about security, but also about an open predjudice against foreigners.Originally Posted by Sei-chanIs it fair? In the college I've applied to, instead of paying the regular $5,000, I must pay $10,000 more just for a year's tuition. Is it fair? How many other kids are in my situation? During the three years we have to wait for that green card (stating the holder to be a permanent resident) to be processed, we college students have to pay the "alien" fee, we don't have the right to financial aid and we recieve very few, if any, scholarships. That's three out of four years of college.
Why do I have to pay $10,000 more when I've lived here for 10 years of my life? Why is it there, anyways, these limits set for international students? It takes enough money to get over here; enough money to apply for all those employment authorization cards, green cards, visas, social security cards; enough money to settle in. Why make it harder on us?
America is a great place to go to college. I just want a better education than I can get in my home country.
