Some interesting insights on college loan debt.
I'm guessing public college is out of the question?
Well I do think he has a point about certain majors not leading to jobs that will help people to pay off those loans. I remember someone posting a list of the top 20 most worthless degrees once.
Of course he's got a point. Always amazed me people enrolled in programes where they knew after getting that degree, they'd have a tough time actually finding a job.
Look whatever your degree, just focus on getting REAL SKILLS.
Even if you get a degree in whatever, pay some extra money to get a real world skill, like tax prep or barber college, so you can always be employed.
It's niggaz on this very site with college degrees but working the fry bin at McDonald's but they won't chime in and admit it.
They know Obama fucked up the economy.
English, science, math/business are the best majors, anything else is a complete waste
Still don't understand why banks/govt are giving loans 4 such wasteful degrees
I think also part of the problem is the people
schools say things like "well help place you upon graduation"
and people think that means they'll get a job 100% for sure
look if you suck shit, they cant help you, even if you graduated. If theres no jobs, they cannot help you
people are pretty stupid so part of the blame is on them
My sister's best friend recieved a loan to buy a house 4 over A$700,000 dollars plus another loan 4 school not to mention (she's been in school for 10 years now still no degree she keeps transferring,lol) the girl isn't even a us citizen & works at a dentist office & has outstanding loans close to a mill, lol this country is fucked
to get that much money in a loan she had to have collateral or a good co-signer
so I blame her for overspending lol sounds like its her fault
There was a shitload of people who kept transferring back and forth between universities (just so that they kept the status and worked via student services yet never attended classes), but luckily that got axed with a newly passed law which allows a student to either pause for a year or change what they wish to study only once. After that they have to pay tuition (however substantially less that what people usually pay abroad).
