    Not "needing" money is an unique comfort, but even that comes with a price.

    As far as universities are concerned...my time spent in those not only allowed me to maintain hobbies, but also made me turn resentful to the aspect which I'll simply refer to as "negative selection of theorists".

    Those amongst us students who already got our feet in the waters of our profession and who've already been a part of larger projects, we've always been distanced as the remaining students somehow didn't dare to approach us. But they had (due to only having time to study) generally better grades and it turned out that they were the ones who stayed at the university upon getting their degrees (where otherwise would they be employed with their lack of practical knowledge) as helpers and assistants. Sooner or later these assistants of course become professors and they lecture only what they can ~ plain, boring, the most severely out-dated theory.

    This process or phenomenon I witnessed as a student and now I feel that the university I've attended, annually produces some useful scientists and researchers, but damn few engineers. Unfortunately, of course, is that the latter we'd need about a hundred times as many as the first. And even those few who'd actually be needed get swept away by other countries...

    college tuition is definitely getting too high, along with the textbook ripoff scheme.

    that doesn't mean higher education isn't worth it, because it is. if you think it guarantees success, you're wrong. what college does is open doors, the rest is still up to you.

    that of course assumes you're attending a well-regarded university and not making bad decisions.

    College is a scam, but different strokes for different folks.. No school taught me how to cultivate my craft, market it, and manage it. I own my business and i dropped out of highschool in the 10th grade, wasn't b/c i was stupid but b/c I felt the curriculum was stupid and a waste of my time. ten years of dibble dabble and i finally figured it out.. not saying my route is everyones route but college isn't necessary in all situations. HOWEVER. if AMERICA wanted our NATION to be #1.. it'd offer education to everyone !!! it would encourage people to get degree's and it could produce all the leading smart people.. but nah we rather make money off of it. and produce shit.

    And nobody seems to notice, nobody seems to care ... that's what the owners count on, the fact that Americans will probably remain willfully ignorant of the big red, white and blue dick that's being jammed up their assholes every day. Because the owners of this country know the truth -- it's called the American Dream ... 'cuz you have to be asleep to believe it

    the entire financial system is diabolically evil-let alone college. The whole point is to keep everyone in debt...its the new form of slavery.

    You are just foolish. The facts don't lie. the videos point on the gross underhanded moves made by Banks to trap kids in mountains of debt before they even become a Sophomore. FACT.

    the documentary of those that graduate is waiting to be done by YOU...so until then...



    All of this ^^could've been achieved without stepping foot on a college campus. Just ask the inventor of the Hershey chocoloate bar and Coca-Cola.

    Success is rooted in one's ability to hustle and strive, not glad-handing for a degree.

    And you never told us how much debt your STILL IN, to get your sacred degree.

    and FYI - I own my business, while you work for somebody. and one of us never finished college.

    Over here, college/university doesn't have tuitions ~ unless one enrolls as a citizen (over the age of 24; I believe; and is employed). In that case they pay from 2500 - 4500 depending on the university and program they offer.

    the european system of tax-supported universities sounds great, but it's all a part of european socialism. there are costs to that as well as benefits, which we've clearly seen in the sovereign debt crisis.

    It's a good system on paper. Roughly 65% of all students only enroll (for free), so that they keep their status and are able to work via student services, the actual studying part is far from their mind.

    Which is why there's probably going to be a pay to study reform soon.

    Glad to hear your cousin is half way done with the loans. :)

    Pretty much.

    correction: Obama has pushed the govt in a socialist direction. that doesn't mean we're anywhere near the european system.
