I'm in class right now so I don't have time to read all the responses, but I would just like to say that I was kicked out of the house when I turned 18, worked 2 full time jobs to survive. Went back to city college when shit hit the fan, worked multiple part time jobs to support myself, while completing my associates and bachelors, (starting masters soon)I pay for everything on my own and don't rely on anyone to help me. My truck is paid off and I just landed a bitching job at SpaceX! Working on rockets! All this and I'm only 24, so I dont give a **** about people my age when they complain there parents dont buy them shit. **** them!

Oh and my student loan payments are pennies because I paid for most of education out of pocket.

Venting over.

For those who are wondering I got my bachelors in Aeronautics and minor in management not some useless art degree like those bleeding heart liberals get, they might as well go hug a tree.

I found that some of the best engineers have artistic touch.

Here's another kink. In my not-so-short lifetime, most people I met in physical sciences have been liberals. These are some of the most intelligent people I've met. The liberal leaning tendency of scientists (and university professors/researchers in general) have been well-documented. They don't hug a tree, but spend most of their time in research labs/study.

Not really sure where that puts me.

What do you expect from a generation that is more concerned about their DTF average then their GPA average.

P and S degrees worked for a small percentage of people that actually applied those degrees, the rest are in careers that don't use their psych or Soc. degrees. I think its important maybe to minor in the P and S and major in Finance, business, engineering etc.

My point is that if your percentage of ACTUALLY using of what you paid tuition is minimal, then why major in it.

I also know people who don't directly use that degree but have decent jobs. And yes they paid back their loans.

Don't forget, there are plenty of individuals that go to college just for the "experience" and don't really have a specific career goal, so they end up with degrees that are generally impractical just so they can pass or enjoy and have their parents pay their way. How many people get a degree in international relations and end up as an ambassador to a country?

Even practical degrees don't guarantee anything today. A friend of mine got a master's in physics and ended up working at Circuit City when he graduated.

Laughter is the best medicine. But, if you're laughing without any reason, you need medicine.
