My girlfriend gave me a great idea the other day about how I should see if I still qualify for the Good Student Discount from Geico now that I’m back part-time at Johns Hopkins. Unfortunately, I’m not. These are the rules for the Geico Good Student Discount (from the Geico Rate Class Explanation sheet):
GOOD STUDENT DISCOUNT: Owners or operators who are age 16-24 and full-time students (including those in an academic home study program) may be eligible for this discount. The individual must be classified as a single or married male or a single female operator. Scholastic records for the immediately preceding school semester or quarter (or comparable segment) must show that each such operator was a full-time student and:
- ranked scholastically among the upper 20% of the class, or
- had a grade average of B or its equivalent, or
- had an average of at least three points for all subjects combined, or its equivalent, or
- was included in the “Dean’s List,” “Honor Roll,” or comparable listing for scholastic achievement, or
- ranked in the upper 20% of one of the following national standardized tests administered within the past 12 months: PSAT, PACT, SAT-I, ACT, Iowa Test of Basic skills, California Achievement test, or TAP.
I don’t fit in the 16-24 age group so I’m disqualified on that account plus I’m not full-time, I’m only part time. Oh well, it was worth shot!
