My parents are the most awesome parents in THE ENTIRE WORLD.

Not only did they pay for my entire undergraduate education, at an expensive private school, they are going to pay for TWO THIRDS of my law school. My dad and I spent some time tonight going over my loan requirements for next year, and he said that they can pay about $50,000 EACH YEAR. I will only have loans of roughly $20,000 a year (why is law school $70,000 a year why why why), and they will be the loans with the lowest interest rates and the subsidies and the forgiving repayment plans.

I can graduate from law school only $60,000 in debt. Hah. Only, I say. Except that compared to being $200,000+ in debt, that is an awesome number. And Georgetown has a great loan repayment assistance program for people wanting to go into public interest work, so I think $60,000...will be something I can handle.

My parents are just...so incredibly full of awesome and also foresight. They set up college funds for us before we were born, and have always lived below their means so they have money for things like putting their daughter through law school and letting us go study in Europe and Africa. (Twin is now an intern at CERN in Switzerland, and Younger Sister is going to study in Africa next year.)

And also, in a slight Big Bang update...37,000 words. This story is so awesome! In this chapter it took me off on a tangent I didn't expect but ended up loving. I am so happy with this fic. :D

OMG, I am so HAPPY for you! *dancing hugs* God, your parents are SMART! It's so good to hear when people actually think "I want my kid to be successful when she grows up..." and then think "I think I'll actively help with that!" If you're a good lawyer... or I should say an effective one, even if you don't start down the dark path, you could pull down the sixty thou in a couple years easy peasy.

Oh, wow! I really really hope you love it!!
