my university does the same, teachers says that because the universiy is free (i pay nothing), the university isn't selling knowledge but just providing knowledge, so for educational purpose they are allowed to copy books/softwares/etc....

(maybe what i just said didn't meant **** , i'm not an english speaker and i apologize)

User avatar #36 to #11 - akkere (01/02/2013) [-]
Why would you get paid to have an education?

Free Education is one thing, but the point of receiving an education is acquiring the skills to make money in the first place.

I need a one way ticket to Scandinavia because college is ridiculously expensive in America.

But wait, I can only speak English because I was born and raised in America where schools do not stress learning a second language. No wonder people think Americans are uneducated.

You would actually get far with english. Most people from 17 and up should be expected to be somewhat fluent in english. Also, free healthcare, and lots of chances of support and such. Also, you have to pay 125% for most things. The money has to come from somewhere

My Math teacher talked about this back in high school. You are paid to get an education. In America, every hour you spend in high school equates to about 70 dollars because you will be paid more at a job for having more qualifications. If you decide to get an AA (2 years of college) you are paid about 100 dollars for every hour spent in college (that includes tuition, subtracts the time that you spend actually learning, and assumes that other people started working right away.

long story short, we do get paid for school, just not directly.
#134 to #133 - anon (01/02/2013) [-]
And if you aren't able to get a job because the economy sucks ass and every job is getting 100 applications?

How about the fact that the majority that you learn in college you would learn on the job? Medical doctors obviously excluded.

We put too much emphasis on college. Most jobs that require it don't even need it. And yet, here we are, forcing our kids to go to college to get a job. Because, even though that job doesn't need it, we're brainwashed into thinking we need it. We'll pay anything for something most jobs don't even need but require.

Welcome to the real world, where you get ****** and it doesn't make any sense.
User avatar #135 to #134 - gtk (01/02/2013) [-]
And as a matter of fact, college helps you to find a job. For instance, I am currently studying at the University of Arizona as an Industrial Engineer. I got an internship my junior year at Intel and after they saw how I worked in their office they extended the offer that they will pay for the rest of my school and a masters degree if I work for them. Its a secure job because they are investing in me, and I get a free education.

You get from college what you go to get, of course people that party and waste 50 G arnt going to be successful, and they will come complain about it. yeah, sometimes lifes a bitch, but it will be a lot worse if you dont have that piece of paper that says your smart.

bigwords . com for anyone who needs to get textbooks. It'll find the cheapest price for you. and when you want to sell them back, use bookscouter . com. It does the same thing, but for sites that buy them so you can get the best payback. I've sold some of mine for more than I bought them now.

I'm putting this out there whether you want it or not.

College is a ******* scam. They make you pay the equivalent of a Ferrari at some universities, where you retain 5% of what you actually pay for. College is like saying "Oh, you wan't to be a firefighter? Better learn ******* calculus then". Sure meeting new people and getting drunk off your ass is awesome, but it doesn't make up for the $25,000 that your parents have to fork over to the money-hungry ******* at the university. In case anyone was wondering: Yes, I am butthurt.
User avatar #108 to #38 - saxophan (01/02/2013) [-]
It is extremely expensive at face value. However, if you apply to a lot of colleges and also apply extensively for financial aid, you might be able to find a college that's more affordable after all is said and done. My mom makes about $40k a year, and my dad is dead, and I'm currently paying about $4,000/yr for a $50k+/yr school. Comparable prices were proposed to me at at least three other schools I applied for. I'm not by any means 100% certain that this is the case, but I think if you try hard enough, you should be able to find a school that does a fair job of accommodating your financial situation.

Also, in the spirit of thinking outside the box, I'd like to mention that college is more than the empirical four years of education that naysayers like to suggest it is. If you're doing it right, college should be some of the best years of your life. You steadily gain a sense of independence, make new friends, go new places, maybe have your first serious relationship, and ultimately learn a lot more about yourself. You can't really put a price on that.

that's like full time min wage... most people don't get paid the same a high school drop out their entire life
User avatar #67 to #62 - pebar (01/02/2013) [-]
Let's say $60k for a 4 year degree (including boarding), less $25k from your parents, less scholorships (maybe $5k), means $30k for you to pay from a GOOD college, and that's if you aren't working part time. Student loans are low interest; if you don't live like you don't have any debt after college, you can pay it off in a few years. Quit bitching...
User avatar #72 to #67 - soggytomatoe (01/02/2013) [-]
Yes, because everyone in America can afford the $30k a year for college. I'm currently living in a lower middle class family. My sister was lucky enough to get a full ride scholarship to play softball at Loyola-Chicago University. But guess what? If she didn't get a full ride scholarship, no college for her. My family would be in so much debt that my parents would probably kill themselves. The way your thinking is "Why can't people just go to college?" It's not that simple. So shut the **** up and quit thinking that everyone can afford college.

I'll let you in on a secret, college is EXPENSIVE. I know that's a big word for somebody like yourself that probably comes from a upper class family.
User avatar #84 to #72 - charolastra (01/02/2013) [-]
If you're poor (and I mean actually poor, as in living in a family where you live with your single mother who makes $23,000 a year), then federal aid and scholarships (if you're a good student) can take care of most of the cost.
#111 to #72 - anon (01/02/2013) [-]
30k for all 4 years, not per year
User avatar #78 to #72 - pebar (01/02/2013) [-]
My parents make a combined total of about 40k a year and I live just a few blocks from "the hood." If you want to go to college, then you're going to have to work. Public schools are state-funded and doing well in that can earn you a lot of scholarships. My sister just finished her doctor of chiropractics degree 2nd in her class by WORKING HARD. Being poor just means you have to work harder; it doesn't make it impossible.

Most real jobs require you to have a degree; it doesn't even matter what you major in. Getting a degree proves that you have the ability to work hard. And statistically, those same jobs pay significantly more than jobs that don't require it. That increased pay will more than cover the cost of college. Also, the very prestigious colleges, they look really good for you when applying for high paying jobs.

It's very true. It's incredibly expensive. Pre-pharm was a good $12,000 and I'm looking at probably another $60,000 to get through actual pharmacy school. If I wanted to, at starting salary, I can have that debt paid off in 2 years (one if those silly things like food and shelter weren't required). Might take longer than that since there's no interest and I don't need to.... but that's beside the point.

Basically, 6 years of school will cost me 2 years of work. Not a bad trade considering the income afterward will be very nice. Not crazy rich of course, but relatively high and STABLE. Can you think of many towns that don't have a pharmacy? On the other end of the spectrum, my brother dropped out of college. He's currently working as a hospital software trainer and making $60,000+ a year. Plenty for comfortable living.

So why does a degree matter? He worked his ass off in that company, climbing the ladder, to make it to that pay. I'll just have to turn in a job application. We both have to put in crap time. Only instead of school, he worked in a ****** call center until he showed that he knew the software better than some of the people coding it.

And if that company ever fails or restructures or something? He's a nobody again. Oh? You were a software trainer? So what? What does that matter? You can say you were the best person at that company, but everybody else does too. Me? I'd just have to find a pharmacy with an opening and flash my little piece of paper called a degree. Yay! I'm employed again!

I like having money and I like having peace of mind. You generally won't get that without some sort of degree.

I’ll put you in so much ******* pain that it’ll make Jesus being nailed to a cross in the desert look like a ******* back massage on a tropical island. I don’t give a **** how many reps you have or how tough you are IRL, how well you can fight, or how many ******* guns you own to protect yourself. I’ll ******* show up at your house when you aren’t home. I’ll turn all the lights on in your house, leave all the water running, open your fridge door and not close it, and turn your gas stove burners on and let them waste gas. You’re going to start stressing the **** out, your blood pressure will triple, and you’ll have a ******* heart attack. You’ll go to the hospital for a heart operation, and the last thing you’ll see when you’re being put under in the operating room is me hovering above you, dressed like a doctor. When you wake up after being operated on, wondering what ticking time bomb is in your chest waiting to go off. You’ll recover fully from your heart surgery. And when you walk out the front door of the hospital to go home I’ll run you over with my ******* car out of no where and kill you. I just want you to know how easily I could ******* destroy your pathetic excuse of a life, but how I’d rather go to a great ****** length to make sure your last remaining days are spent in a living, breathing ******* hell. It’s too late to save yourself, but don’t bother committing suicide either… I’ll ******* resuscitate you and kill you again myself you bitch-faced phaggot. Welcome to hell, population: you
