My parents paid for zero of my college education. I worked 3 jobs and paid for 100% of my education without borrowing a cent.

I did not party for 4 years...I lived at home for 3 of those 4 years...I never went on spring break....I worked 60 hrs a week during summer.

You don't have to go into debt to get an education.


Of course this was back when the government footed most of the bill and tuition was a fraction of what it is now but yeah, totally.

There are tons of people who work to put themselves through school....who do 2 years at CC and 2 yrs at a local 4 year school.

I have zero sympathy for that person who borrows over 100k to go to little private liberal arts schools and major in something that you can't make a living at.....sociology, political science, etc.

There are many ways to get an education without going into massive debt. However, those who want to not work during school, not work during summers, go on summer vacations and spring break trips, get no sympathy.

Lately today's generation just sits around and bitches that someone doesn't give them something else for free.

100K to go to a private liberal arts college? Baahahhahahhaha. What magical fairy land is this? Can I borrow a nickle to go get a Coke?

Kids these days can't suck off the government teat and get heavily taxpayer subsidized tuition as easily as you did.

Just threw 100k out there as a number. I know it is more.

My point is that these little liberal arts schools with said degrees are not even worth 100k ....much less the more likely 200k

Anyone borrowing money to attend these schools are crazy.

100 K is more like a public school

In state.

But yeah, everybody could totally do that working nights and weekends.

Sounds a tad high.

Granted I'm 6 years out of school, but I made it out in 4 years for under 40k while living on campus.

My wife took 6 years and came out better than 30k, but she never lived on campus.

My wife went back to get her bachelor's about 3 years ago and it set us back about 40K for two years. College is ridiculously expensive these days.

4 years of tuition only for an in state public school is probably around $10K a year. If you include room, board, and books, $20K-$25K.

Supply and demand over and over again. Celebs pro ath etc make obscene money. But guess what? As long as someone is willing to pay them it won't stop.
Same here. The data is there to suggest you can make great money with certain degrees as well as how much it can cost and yet it doesn't phase anyone.

Where is al this education lottery money? What about when a schools sports program makes a profit, does it help to lower tuition costs?
We proly have more book smart people than ever before but they can't create or build or produce much. So now we have a labor log jam and even if someone wants to hire the wages are beneath some.
Messed up right now.
