Comment Don't borrow money if you can't pay it back (Score 1) 1032

I think it's important that people view college as less of a necessity, and more of a way to earn a degree to pursue a career. If the starting career salary, or salary increase long-term won't allow for a lifestyle that can pay back any money borrowed, then borrowing money to begin with is not the best idea. Some of my peers took gen-ed classes at a community college, to save on tuition. I really wish I was smart enough back then to do that, or that the college prep advisors in my high school had suggested such. I also believe that this author does have career opportunities that would allow him to pay back part of his financial obligations, and he chooses to be a deadbeat about it, and that he shouldn't have attended an expensive school.
