If others(like nellie) aren't smart enough to learn the rules, tough luck

Not smart enough? Nice try. As a former financial aid officer I could tell you a thousand ways to cheat, lie or fudge numbers to gain financial aid dollars. But I won't.

Smart people don't have to cheat the system. They know that they will accommplish their goals legitimately. You think prisons are filled with smart people? They are filled with stupid people who think that they are clever enough to "get away" with something. So, you won't go to jail for cheating financial aid, but it still proves that you're not smart enough to make it in this world the honest and right way.

Since you dislike me so much, kindly remove me from your Favortie Fools.
