I feel like I landed in a pit of pure luck that I have my entire college tuition already paid for and I don't have to deal with student loans.

or you could just get a GED... or dropout.. or start an online business..

I thought they were the only loans that still exist even if you die? Don't they fall to your family or something?
#34 to #16 - richiehf (11/05/2013) [-]
I'd imagine such law to have existed maybe 40 years ago, but from logical point of view, that's a very stupid policy. I really hope it's not like that.

believe me, It's not like I'd agree with that sort of idea. I don't particularly plan on dying either way, so i'm stuck with them regardless.

Depending on where you live, yes it still exists

the hardest thing is to be an unemployed college graduate when your younger brother has a job in his field and is making a lot of money. The shame you get from your parents when he's at the table thinking about buying a house while im still just living in my room

Don't forget philosophy, women studies, LGBT studies, ethics. Seriouslty why does college offer these classes over a new welding class, pluming class ore etc.
User avatar #69 to #64 - Shiny ONLINE (11/05/2013) [-]
Because university is a business, and parents always tell their kids that they can get any job with any degree, so they go with the easy **** .
User avatar #70 to #69 - undeadwill (11/05/2013) [-]
But its a wasted investment.
User avatar #71 to #70 - Shiny ONLINE (11/05/2013) [-]
What do the colleges care? It's easier just to let parents push their offspring into economic death traps than to actually give a damn about educational worth.
User avatar #76 to #71 - undeadwill (11/05/2013) [-]
True.

Its a shame college is great but does so many things it shouldn't.
User avatar #83 to #64 - brassydolphin (11/10/2013) [-]
wait, women studies?

like, do you get to open them up and se what they look like inside?

mfw you aren't going to have the networks and internship opportunities that are far more abundant in 4 year universities.

User avatar #20 to #18 - desuforeverlulz (11/05/2013) [-]
I'm transferring, so I still do. Nice try. that was implied in the "equivalent degree" and "the same amount of time", comm college is only 2 years

And besides I'm going to school for psychology, that's really only advantageous for a select number of career choices.

inb4 psychologists earn no moneyz
User avatar #24 to #20 - YoursTruley (11/05/2013) [-]
psych student here, that is a good way to go, but even staying 2 years at CC wont help with college debt too much, unless you go to a local 4 year, live with your parents, have a 4.0 and get scholarships...
User avatar #25 to #24 - desuforeverlulz (11/05/2013) [-]
Doing exactly that.
User avatar #26 to #25 - YoursTruley (11/05/2013) [-]
then you should be fine, just make friends with all your psych professors
User avatar #44 to #20 - desuforeverlulz (11/05/2013) [-]
lol I'm curious as to why people are thumbing this down. I'm going to a 4 year university after community college, plain and simple. Therefore his point is null.
#36 to #18 - John Cena (11/05/2013) [-]
the amount of money you spend on those networks and internship opportunities does not justify the extra money. it's just as hard to find those, maybe a little easier at better colleges.

I am currently a high school drop-out, never went to college, never planned on it, and I'm working a steady job making $11.00 an hour at a warehouse for FedEx. Feels good man.
#46 to #13 - dandyhandy **User deleted account** (11/05/2013) [-]
You could go to college for 9 months and be a pharmacy technician. Here, minimum wage is $7.25/hr. Pharmacy techs at ******* Walmart make $18/hr.
$11 is good enough to care for yourself, just barely. Try supporting a family and saving for retirement, college for children, insurance, etc on that kind of money.
User avatar #48 to #46 - bitey (11/05/2013) [-]
I don't plan on having a family for at least 10 years, and I don't need to worry about saving for retirement when I'm only 19. Chill out bro. Also I've got a good chuck of money coming my way when my great grandmother passes away. So for the time being, I'm set.

**ucmerolling rolled a random image posted in comment #6197230 at Safe For Work Random Board ** No wonder everything is expensive here in Australia... I'm on $19 an hour (slightly above minimum) while studying full time.

I'm a college dropout only made it through one semester before saying **** this **** and just disappearing from campus I make 15 an hour and my boss has told me he plans to have me take over his company soon It only makes a fifth the profit of his secondary Business so hes shifting his focus to that company and doesn't want to be bothered by the first one

I do, and thanks for the support I"m low ranked so I cant thumb you up I'm sorry
User avatar #15 to #13 - lech (11/05/2013) [-]
Congratulations! You're getting just barely above minimum wage!
While, people who graduated college in a field actually worth investing in are making double what you at a minimum.
User avatar #17 to #15 - bitey (11/05/2013) [-]
Congrats to he ones who actually get employed then. I'm perfectly happy though. I make enough to pay bills, buy food and get something nice for myself once a week. Having roommates helps ya' know. Plus once peak starts (November 22nd) I'll be made an area leader, which basically means I just watch other people work and make sure they do it right. All with a nice $6.00 raise and an extra 2 hours every week on Sunday. You seem upset about something. What do you do?
User avatar #19 to #17 - lech (11/05/2013) [-]
Still a student, self studying astrophysics, regular physics, biology, calculus, and computer science. Ya know, the normal stuff.

Pretty damn accurate. Every college graduate I know is either unemployed or has a job that has nothing to do with their degree

I feel like my teachers are trying to destroy my dreams. I am taking a hospitality management program because my long term goal is to own a restaurant. I am fully aware of how much money and work they require as well as the failure rate but I swear my teachers won't stop telling me how hard it is to succeed. It feels like they are trying to change my mind.

The nightmare called student loans follow you no matter what, take a job where you can get it.
#66 - xtrin ONLINE (11/05/2013) [-]
Am I the only one who thinks university degrees are overrated? Quite a lot of my friends are high-school graduates and they earn roughly 1300 $ a month, living quite a satisfied life. I think it's more about grabbing the right opportunity. University degree won't ensure you a good-paid job, often even less likely a job in the field you studied.
#73 to #66 - ohfudgemyballs (11/05/2013) [-]
Highly overrated. I'm a graduate myself, and an authorized physio. I can't even find a regular job, as I'm over qualified for "normal" jobs, and the jobs I'm qualified for are taken by people with more than my competence, having worked more than 10 years etc.

#datfeel when you, after tearing your ass through years of studies and exams, find out your weekend warrior/drunk-all-weekend/ ************ buddy will most likely make more than you for quite some time.

Useless. If I could choose again, I'd become a firefighter, teacher or a joiner.

A college degree is the ticket that can get you in but it is up to you and your skills and ability's to keep yourself there....downside to that i getting hired in the first place is bs some times
