The thing about college that bothers me the most I guess is that it is looked at a lot from a business standpoint. The more people you round up and get to believe college will solve all their problems then the more loans are taken out and the more money people can make from the students.
Debt has always been something that you incur rather early on in life but at some point the average goal switched from finish highschool settle down and buy a house and fall into debt, to finish high school go directly to college and into debt, then after years of paying that back attempt to get a house and get put into more debt.
It just seems like you're expected to be in some form of debt nearly every day of your life. Medical, housing, school, credit cards, there's always something.
Well the only value is calling in and hoping to make a few bucks here and there. I don't think it's worth the headache though if you're still living at home and it may end up costing quite a bit of gas money depending on where you're needed.
