Frankly, Mr. Laird, we all believe that there is something wrong with
"ivy-league" tuition, these days. As a student with more than his
share of loans, I believe that a simple recommendation for an appendage
to the FAQ was sufficient.

It most certainly was not necessary for the excessive commentary on the
faults of being an physical anthropology undergraduate with a small
faculty. As it was never a matter of issue, a simple reply to the
question would have been acceptable.

If you have only a few "nice" or helpful things to say, then perhaps
the extraneous criticism could be eliminated.

As a note, the information was offered by one of the mentioned
resources long before you apparently read your mail...
