Timing is Everything

Today my supervising minister said that he heard from the senior minister this dangerous little tidbit:

There is a top university very near to me (which shall remain nameless) with something crazy like a 19 billion dollar endowment. The divinty school within that university is currently a focus of the university. They are supposedly encouraging folks to come to the seminary with *tremendously* generous amounts of financial aid. Through the grape-vine, apparently, the senior minister heard they are not only giving gobs of tuition assistance, but that they are even giving students/families apartments to live in during their studies. They have completed their application cycle for 2008-2009, but in September they will begin recruitment again for 2009-2010.

I'm not going to say anything else about this. Timing is everything, and sometimes timing just doesn't add up. I just want to say, hmmm.
