It’s hard trying to find your place, in a new country, full of different cultures, in a city that never
stops, with a class full of interesting personalities, venturing into an unfamiliar industry.
As an ”INFP” these conditions might not be the most optimal, but it’s been incredibly exciting, to
throw oneself into something new…yada yada yada
Am I describing this to much like a lamb being thrown into the lions den?
It’s not like that, I exaggerate for effect. Don’t worry, I’ve been around (I don’t know what that’s

Now, I know we all have some strong opinions, and that the discussion might get a bit heated but
please guys, try to be civil, ok? And share your thoughts in a calm mannered way.
How do you really feel about the mortgage market and subprime loans? The predatory lending?!
How about the RECAP data and how that could be applied to when we’re shopping for student

Really say what you think, don’t hold back now, I know this might be a tad controversial but..I
wanted to bring up the issue on voluntary participation program that’s designed to.. well you guys
are already very familiar with the program, no need for me to explain what it is about.
Yeah, it’s to assist not only individuals but companies, both small and large to…yeah, you guys
And how all of this doesn’t apply to you since you don’t live in the US? &
Please, don’t be afraid to share. This is a safe space.
