RC's Trip to Oberlin in Italy

Good Day!

Some of you might know me for my web series work as Rap Critic, where I critique lyrics of Hip-Hop songs. In addition, though, I am also a bass vocalist, and have been training as an opera singer for about seven years now. Recently, I did a late auditioned for Oberlin in Italy, and got accepted for the opera program, to play Figaro in Mozart's Le Nozze di Figaro!

However, the fee for entrance to the program is $5000, and this was their offer for payment time:

"We are able to offer the following payment plan: 

3-month payment plan:

$1500 due on Jan 20, 2015

$2,000 due on Feb 20, 2015

$2,000 due on March 20, 2015"

I'd like to attend, but the fee is pretty steep, and if I can't go, I can't go, but I figured I'd at least make it known that this is a situation I'm going through, and any contributions would be cool, and much appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Daren J.

(P.s.: I'm not sure how this works, but I'm assuming there should be something you should get back in return for your assistance, and if you'd like, I could ship you signed copies of albums. And I guess, to the highest contributor, maybe I could give up my old Rap Critic jacket, as well as a recording of me singing "Vecchia Zimarra".)
