Who else is taking general education classes for ~$2,500 per semester total?
I went to a very well known university that cost me $15,000 per semester and left the day before classes started so I was refunded every penny back. They're all online and equivalent with all of the major universities in my state. I don't see why more people don't do this. I never liked dorm-life, anyway.
what are you asking?
i went to uni because you meet people there who have similar interests and/or can help you advance. the government and some other retards paid for my tuition, and i worked enough for living expenses too.
if you're looking for advice for poor people, i will say don't worry about education at all what the fuck is wrong with you. either make friends and get hired by them, or start at a very low level in some trade. for anything a poor person is capable of doing in his life he will probably learn on the job or by his own will. going to school is a privilege that shouldn't have much to do with this or that money, it's not an investment.
1. They do it for the experience and to party at a big school for 2 extra years
2. They got a full ride of big scholarship
3. Their family is loaded and the difference between $3k and $15k is negligible to them
5. They fell for the meme
I went to youtube and took the MIT graduate courses for free. I also applied to my cv that i graduated from MIT, got hired just like that
Because they aren't paying for it, either due to scholarships or family help.
I'm finishing up at cc and had a fun time. Got a nice apartment with friends made here, financed everything myself, and got accepted to a the best school for my program in my state. Saved a boatload of money too.
I hung out at my friends schools and it just seemed shitty. Pay 2000 for shitty food. Pay thousands for a tiny dorm loaded over by power hungry ra's. Go to a party and there's a South Park tier "brodown"
