“Oh my God, unbelievable,” she recalled saying to herself. “The most wanted man in the world is in my house.” Jonathan Man, another of Snowden’s lawyers in Hong Kong, said he had initially considered hiding him in a warehouse but that he and Tibbo quickly dismissed the idea. Instead, after taking him to the United Nations office that handles refugee claims in Hong Kong and filing an application, they brought him to the apartment of a client seeking asylum. “It was clear that if Mr. Snowden was placed with a refugee family, this was the last place the government and the majority of Hong Kong society would expect him to be,” Tibbo said. “Nobody would look for him there. Even if they caught a glimpse of him, it was highly unlikely that they would recognize him.” There are about 11,000 registered asylum seekers living in Hong Kong, mostly from South and Southeast Asia. They generally cannot work legally and survive on monthly stipends that rarely cover living costs. Tibbo said he turned to these clients for help in part because he expected them to understand Snowden’s plight. http://foresthillmotel.com/eastonperrycanada/2016/09/13/todays-challenges-for-easy-interview-plans/“These were people who went through the same process when they were fleeing other countries,” he said. “They had to rely on other people for refuge, safety, comfort and support.” He noted that Snowden was not wanted by the Hong Kong police at the time and that he had advised his clients to cooperate with the police if they showed up.

Because of differences between the two methods, the PROFILE usually yields a harsher assessment of ability to pay than the FAFSA, resulting in less need-based aid from the college, Kantrowitz said. One major difference: The expectation that students will earn significantand increasingincome each year during school. High expectations The PROFILE assumes students will make anywhere from $3,000-6,000 every summer. That number increases with each passing year. Several students expressed dismay about the summer income expectation. With unpaid internships common, to earn thousands of dollars over break seems like fantasy to many of those the Campus Times interviewed. Another key difference Kantrowitz noted involves students with divorced parents. The PROFILE counts not just income of the students custodial parent (and stepparent, if remarried), but also the non-custodial parent, when the students parents are divorced, he said. Because this method accounts for more income, it will almost always lead to a harsher assessment of ability to pay than a method that ignores non-custodial parents. A final difference between the CSS PROFILE and the FAFSA involves calculating personal wealth.
