Unformatted text preview: /'\ October 2008 There's always a chance that some of your share dec ons will be wrong and, in the early days particularly, the club may experiences losses. This must be an aggravation. never a disaster. so keep club subscriptions at a level that everyone can easily afford.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
