I often eat at this Afghan place in the food court. Run by your stereotypical poor immigrant family. Twist is the owner has a son who is huge - I mean really huge - and ranked among the top football players in the area. Right now he is a junior, but has already been offered a free ride to Cal Berkeley. Apart from tuition, lodging, and dining paid, he is also going to be compensated for travel to home every semester. Also he is getting maid service to clean his room twice a week, and all laundry expenses paid. All this finalized when he is a junior! Does any academic scholarship offer stuff like this? Seems to me this is way over the top, considering how hard good students struggle to make it through college. Or is this simply a matter of demand and supply in the marketplace?
