I made the foolish and irresponsible economic decision to be born to not-wealthy parents, and well after the fact received grants (and loans) to pay for college. Many of my friends who chose their parents more wisely and responsibly didn't get the grants (or take out the loans) that I did to go to college. I feel ok about it. I bet they do too.
