for real though.
American higher education baffles me. The best universities in my country are completely free, and even the private ones are not so expensive that it’d force someone to incur in debt.
Could someone tell me how much US students pay to attend college? In Canada, colleges tend to be 3-5K a year, and universities are 5-7K.
Most schools are between 40-60K. Some (like NYU and a few others) are more.
And no. That’s not a typo.
im already at 36K, with one year to go
the college i’m looking at it 32k a year.
yet people shame others for not having a college degree. makes no sense, really
okay so perks of being a canadian are being suddenly realized by me again, gosh though you guys really need to protest or something its ridiculous how costly it is in the States.
Not saying we need a rebellion but that’s exactly what I’m saying… I’ve had it up to here with Americas bullshit
I graduated from a 4 year university in 2011. I had scholarships, grants, paid out of pocket every semester, and still needed loans just to make it through. Paying as much as I can afford each month, I won’t be paid off until 2040. I will be in debt from my undergrad degree until I am 50. This is disgusting. America
I’m lucky I’m not in debt, but I decided which school(s) to go to based on what wouldn’t break me, not which university would help me advance my working career. ‘Merica.
i’ve only got my associates from a community college and i’m at 23k already. i don’t even know how much it’s going to be to get my bachelor’s and i am afraid that i will never make enough to pay it off.
Including the debt that my mother incurred on my behalf, I stand at around 90k in debt.
I am going to go get my masters now [in a COMPLETELY different field], which will run me another 130k. I am doing this because I CANNOT find a job. I cannot find a job because there aren’t any, and the job openings there are realize that they can be more choosy about who they interview. They don’t want a 25 year old illustrator with no work experience when half of the hundred people that applied have 3-5 years like they asked for.
