    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.

    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

    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).
