Here's The Fine Print On The Country's Biggest-Ever Free College Plan
Freedom's just another word for ... a full-ride scholarship, with strings attached. New York's vast new scholarship program has brought praise, and some nitpicking.
  • It only covers full time students.
  • Families can’t make more than $100,000 a year for the students to be covered (consider the difference in cost of living… you have to be relatively poor to get this scholarship).
  • Students must first apply for, and use, other money like federal Pell Grants, before turning to the scholarship.
  • if you don’t finish on time (2 years for community college, 4 years for 4-year programs), you lose the money… so… most students WILL lose the money and have to get loans to pay for their last year or so.
  • you have to stay in New York post-graduation for the same number of years you received the scholarship… or it retroactively becomes a loan. This is to ensure NY tax payers reap the benefits of paying for your education.

She supposedly made $250,000 from all this. So far. That's really nothing when you think about. She has to pay taxes for every merch country: England, Canada, US, Jamaica (and whichever country her Bday "trip" pictures were taken). Then she has state taxes: CA, NY, TX. Then she has to pay her PR companies, or whoever is PRing for her. And, then she pays those involved in this: JM, BM, MA, and others. She makes way more $$$$ per Suits episode than for all her merching combined.

Well, apparently word has it she got in trouble with IRS, something about not claiming income…and that’s likely the reason the Tig shut down!  She makes $70,000 per episode for Suits….last I heard. No doubt the PR got a lot of her money…..travelling like she was doesn’t come cheap either, unless you “say” you are doing it for charity and get them to pick up the tab!
