Get rid of a lot of these “elective classes”. Why is a person going to school to be nurse required to take a Phy Ed class? They have to pay for all these classes, attend these classes and pass them as well for the credits to count. Teach them the My purpose in life calls me dad shirt skills they need to get hired and do the job w/o all the other BS. Exactly. Like I understand some basic requirements for every degree (ex. English 1 because everyone should be able to speak and communicate properly and efficiently) but some of these required classes are ridiculous. The local high school I went to allowed us to dual enroll at the community college. That way we could take our gen eds as our electives or history classes and it still counts toward our high school and college graduation. Plus if they took 4 classes at the college in high school and passed with good grades, they’d be allowed two years free at the community college. All you had to pay for were books.

I wish there were more opportunities like this. Agree! If you got rid of all the crap courses these students are FORCED to take they would be graduated in 3 years- The first state college/university that offers that will have more students then they can handle. But hey, I don’t have a degree and thought of this year ago! Janelle Stark have her look into taking those GEs in the summer at a community college then take the classes she actually needs at her 4 years during the My purpose in life calls me dad shirt school season! I know a lot of people who did that and saved a good chunk of money! A few even graduated early! The whole education system needs to be redone. It shouldn’t cost 80, 90,000 dollars to go to college. Books shouldn’t cost hundreds of dollars. Go to school for 3, 4 years and are in debt for the rest of your life because you wanted to go to college. What a joke. I went to school to be a physician assistant. I love what I do taking care of patients in the ER. I came out of school with 220k in debt mostly from grad school.

There is no way I could have worked while in PA school. And the couple hundred bucks I might have made per week waiting tables would have been a drop in the bucket. I make over 6 figures now and have been paying on my loans for almost 5 years on an income-driven payment plan and have seen my balance grow to almost 300k due to interest. If I did the standard 10-year plan, my payment would have been about $2500/ month right out of school. No way I could have started a family or purchased a home with that kind of payment. I’ve just accepted I’ll probably die with my loan debt. I’m not asking for sympathy, I knew what I was getting into. Unfortunately, that’s just the cost of going into my field. I just hope something can be done to help those who come after me. Even bringing the interest rates down would help tremendously. Just wanted everyone to know it’s not only the people who majored in something dumb that struggle with student loans.
