Is what they say yet 14% of them are unemployed and another 23% are not looking for a job. Add to that they prob will be coming out of collage with student load debts over 100,000+ dollars(I could not find any hard figures but its not any less then this) makes the the deal sound so much sweeter. So really you cant work at KFC because your over qualified and you cant work at Bank of America because they are not hiring. Sounds like such a great advantage.....

$100,000 in debt? Maybe if you went to an expensive private school, got no scholarships, and no help from your parents.

If you finance everything even at a public college, it could cost at least 100 or more. I checked UNC-G recently just to know how much my son will need in 7 years, and it was 23 thousand a year.

You have to think also how many kids have to do that also. Somehow flipping burgers dont sound so bad if your dept free while your friend cant get a job and is eyeball up in dept. Just another thing wrong with America. You go over to India and can get a PHD for about half what you would here and still can get the same job.

Lots of kids in the south go to schools in different states on OOS scholarships yet end up losing them a year or two in and end up paying the full OOS tuition.

Your paying for more than just a degree/education. Your also paying for the whole college experience (which varies depending on the school).

Four years in India would be torture to me. Four years in Sweden I could deal with. :)

So part of the $23,000 a year goes into being able to hang out with a bunch of douche bags and get high and/or drunk all day? With the distinct hope of crushing some tail in the process?

fug that.

Join the military.

I got paid $18,0000 just for signing on the dotted line. Earned $19,000 year 1, $23,000 year 2, and $25,0000 years 3 & 4. All living expenses paid for plus medical and dental. Got a whole lot better experience traveling the world. Guam, Saipan, Tinian, Japan, Hong Kong, Korea, Philipines, Australia, Singapore, Dubia, Russia, Iraq, Kuwait, and more.
Scored with more tail than probably all of you fugers put together x2 and drank so much the lining of my stomach is beyond repair.

Plus when I so decide, college is paid for plus $1000 a semester for books and the equivelancy of E-5 housing allowance to pay for my mortgage. Which is actually more than my mortgage so I will be making bank.

Join the Navy. Live life. Go to college when you realize why you should go and what you want to do.
