The tuition fund that was supposed to provide a "free-ride" for the boys had been mismanaged, leaving the boys responsible for thousands of dollars in expenses. The university administrators did, however, help the boys with the bulk of their expenses by putting together financial packages for their education.

College and medical school weren’t the free ride that Sam, Rameck, and I had expected. The fund that was supposed to cover our tuition had been mismanaged, and we never got the full-tuition scholarship we had been promised. Though university administrators put together packages of grants, loans, and scholarships to cover the bulk of our expenses, we still had to come up with thousands of dollars.
