Maybe it's hard to tell since four to five years of college is gradual, but was the you who graduated from college much different than the you who graduated from high school? Maybe not for employment purposes, but did it help make you more wise to the world? Not counting the financial burden of college, of course.
What I'd like to see in this country (USA) is the following...
A guarantee that anyone who wants to go to college, can go to college.
Higher Direct loan caps. Maybe triple them. And I mean both subbed and unsubbed loans.
A modification of the 10 year repayment plan for Direct loans. How about zero percent interest for those who make on-time payments? Those who miss a few payments can catch up and reapply for zero percent interest.
First two years of college tuition-free, provided "good standing", for each permanent resident.
Two year grace period before loan repayment so graduates can get on their feet.
And as for graduate school, law school, medical school, we probably need student loan reform too. That way, if someone gets in on their merits, they can afford to pay for it, and not drown in interest-based debt.
