Comment: Avoid debt

(See in situ)

Avoid debt

Avoid debt, avoid government subsidies. One will cost you your money, the other will cost you your integrity.

If you want a tradition 4 year degree, there are a couple of schools that can keep you free of government entanglements: Hillsdale College (MI), Grove City College (PA?), and Lindenwood (MO).

College degrees are not bad things...just don't expect it to lead to a career. It opens some doors (some employers, mostly big corporations, won't touch you without that piece of paper), but it comes with a huge price tag that is, frankly, probably not worth it for most students.

If, however, you are going to college to acquire knowledge of the wider world, regardless of what career it may lead to, then college is a wonderful experience.

Just don't take on debt. Real buzz killer.
