COLLEGE VIRUSES ARE SAYING THIS NOW. IF YOU HAVE A STUDENT HEADED TO COLLEGE IN THE FALL, NOW IS THE TIME TO REQUEST MORE HELP WITH THAT TUITION BILL. SO SOME SCHOOLS CALL THE ADDITIONAL UPDATED AID MERIT AID FOR GOOD STUDENTS BECAUSE IT IS DISCRETIONARY. IF STUDENTS ARE MAKING THEIR FINAL CHOICES OF WHICH UNIVERSITIES THEY’LL ATTEND IT HAS TO HAPPEN BY MAY 1st. SOME FINAL AID DOLLARS ARE FREED UP AND REALLOCATED. BY CHECKED IN WITH YOUR FINANCIAL AID OFFICE NOW THROUGH JUNE, THE “NEW YORK TIMES” SAYS YOU COULD CUT ANOTHER FIVE TO $10,000 OFF THE COST OF YOUR TUITION.>>LISTEN TO THIS, SOUTHWEST AIRLINES NOW SAYS IT WILL NO LONGER OVERBOOK FLIGHTS. THIS KLOMS A DAY AFTER UNITED ANNOUNCED CHANGES IN THE WAKE OF THAT EMBARRASSING INCIDENT WHEN A PASSENGER WAS DRAGGED OFF OF AN OVERBOOKED FLIGHT. A SPOKESPERSON SAYS A NEW RESERVATIONS SYSTEM COMING ON-LINE NEXT MONTH WILL HELP MAKE SURE OVERBOOKING DOES NOT HAPPEN. LAST YEAR, SOUTHWEST BUMPED 15,000 PASSENGERS OFF FLIGHTS. THAT WAS THE MOST OF ANY U.S. AIRLINE.>>REALLY?!>>FASCINATING. IT’S CHANGED THEIR BOOKING MOTTO.>>IF THERE CAN BE A SILVER LINING IN THAT CLOUD OF THAT WHOLE SCANDAL, THEN MAYBE THIS IS IT, NOT JUST UNITED, BUT OTHER AIRLINES SAYING, OH, PEOPLE REALLY DON’T LIKE THIS PRACTICE.>>THEY GOT AWAY WITH IT FOR SO LONG, SO GLAD TO SEE IT COMING TO AN END.
