Queens just pissed me off

A photo of Anonymous Anonymous
Suck it up, my family's net income is about 20k, and the OSAP estimate was only around 9K for CS co-op at UW (tuition alone cost 12k).

So my familys net income is about 95k.

you find it fair for my family to pay over 40,000$ a year on tuition and res while queens didnt even offer $1000 bursary?

I think you too piss people off. Your parents earn 175k per year and yet you expect Queens to give you bursary? Is this a joke or something that you are pissed off? There are many more families out there earning so much less then you and yet, you expect them to give you a bursary....I believe that Queens is giving it to people who are actually in money issues, not families already earning 175k per year.

It's life. There are plenty people who are in worse situation than you. The world does not revolve around you.

I don't get why you're complaining lol, your parents will still have $55,000 left. Your parents could fully pay for you and still carry on with their lives.

You're not even in need of student loans.

In fact, it seems like you're making this thread looking for sympathy. But in reality, there are kids who need to pay tuition by themselves. I don't see them ranting about a bursary.

Why would they ever give out bursaries for students in a family with an income of nearly 100k a year?

Last Saturday my family and I went down to Queens for a tour. One of the main points the representative said is that money shouldnt be an issue when coming to queens.

So anyways, I applied for the General Bursary, and today I got the result saying that I got nothing...

This is absolute bullsh*t, cause Im going into commerce and staying in res, and my twin brother is going to university this coming fall aswell.

Thats over 40k$ a year for my family to pay. Even if my family has a gross income of 175k, that is ALOT.

Queens really pissed me off giving me nothing..

I feel it wasnt looked at properly, how should I go about changing this?




Suck it up kid. I know people who sacrificed there dreams because they were not able to afford their education even with maximum bursary support & I know people who sacrificed their dreams just to live and take care of their parents.

You should be happy that you have two legs eyes and brain, and most importantly 175K a year. You are not even eligible for OSAP as osap's cutoff is 150K i believe.

Furthermore, bursaries are for people with FINANCIAL need. You can survive kid. People like me with an income of 20K a year cannot.

Bursaries are donated by kind souls to help souls in need.

No harsh feelings.

My family has about a 24 000 dollar income. I have a twin brother going to University along with me.

Suck it up.

Lol, iKam22's ongoing soap opera with Queen's continues. Honestly man, you'll be fine with that kind of gross income in the household, but I guess you could try talking to them again. Did you have to state on the bursary form if you have a sibling who's attending university as well? Mention that to them if you do end up contacting them.

I find it funny that the word "kid" is being thrown around a lot here, even though everyone here is basically the same age. Im not gonna list my family's income here for fear of being raged at (shameless self brag?).

...that's bad..?
my family income is barely 10k a year (single parent, 3 children)
I really want to go to Laurier for DD in Business/financial math co-op
even though I got accepted, I'm crying inside because it's a fantasy....can barely afford to pay tuition, let alone residence and such
so now I have to stay at UTSC mgmt co-op, at least it's less of a burden for my family and I may (hopefully) land on an acceptable co-op placement to support myself...
just be grateful

$40,000 for your family to send 2 kids to University is not expensive. Tuition in Canada is cheap as it is.

+1

yup, work study should help a lot (not as bad as you probably think, if you qualify though) but you can definately get a job somewhere in kingston if money is such an issue...

but... iunno, i think Queen's would reserve their bursaries for people who actually really depend on it

(your family makes like almost double that of an average family so there are a large number of people who make it less, cuz of the pyramid effect) So.... they probably did the right thing unless you have some sort of special circumstance

40k is quite a lot though (probably gonna be more)
