In an article yesterday about the Yale College Council’s reaction to the University’s new financial-aid initiative, the News incorrectly asserted that the new aid plan does not modify the summer-earnings contribution required of Yale students who receive financial assistance from the University. While Yale’s news release about the new aid package did not mention the summer contribution, Yale officials said Tuesday that the summer contribution for freshmen will be reduced from $1,850 to $1,200 in order to relieve the financial strain of start-up expenses for the incoming students. Yale’s four-year summer earnings expectation is expected to be lower than that of any other top university, officials said. The News sincerely regrets this error.

    You are kidding, aren’t you? This is such a privileged-kid, first-world problem, that it isn’t a problem at all. I’m pretty sure if you get hungry later in the evening, you have a dorm-fridge or even personal dorm-room refrigerator and could lay in some healthy salads and complex-carbs. And I’m pretty sure you even understand what those terms mean.

    See what I mean? Not a problem at all, just a wee whine.
