Thanks for the tip, Jerry. The comments on this article made me sick to my stomach.
Here's a few to turn your stomach:
A college degree grants you the opportunity to obtain careers beyond what the degree is for.
The guy hasn't even tried yet, and he doesn't actually have a degree.
If after 2 years he can't get a law job, THEN he can whine about it.
This is someone who didn't do his research before law school. With such poor research skills, it is no wonder he can't find a job!
It is obvious why he has no job prospects. The guy failed in what he actually contracted with the school to do. The school agreed to allow him to attend classes and gain knowledge in exchange for money. Nobody forced him to take out loans, get his degree in law, or anything else. They also never promised him a job, or a salary upon graduation.
Grow a set and be a man. This is just an idiot looking to garner attention and probably some money along the way., If I were BC, I would have said, we do not agree to the terms of your offer. Good bye.
Yeah, what a real tempting offer... skip out on paying for 2 1/2 years of education in return for not using the last half-year. *sarcasm*
Boo freaking hoo. No college guarantees you a good job upon graduation, no matter your degree. And they CERTAINLY don't promise your career will be fulfilling.
Here's some free career advice from me to college students everywhere: Your career is YOUR responsibility. It's not your college's, it's not your boss's or employer's (once you have a job), it's not the career center's, it's not the government's.
Yes, you can get help from all of those sources, but in the end it's YOUR responsibility to find a job you want.
My conclusion upon reading this is clear to everyone who "knows" me. You know that I'm mad. He made a real attempt to cure his woes--the only way to do it actually-- and he was shut down hard by these asshole commentators. Unfortunately, consumer debt and even gambling debt can be forgiven at the drop of a hat, and those that try to better themselves are punished for life. What is wrong with this country? They act like everyone is stuck with every stupid financial decision they make. Nothing can be further from the truth. Everyone except students can put their financial indiscretions behind them. Either we revise the bankruptcy code to eliminate bankruptcy as an option to everyone for every type of debt--or we open it to those that are just trying to better themselves through education. Either method would result in a better system than what we have today.
How To Think About Thoughts - I wanted to title this “the thoughts are a lie”, but it wouldn’t be true. Not entirely. Some thoughts are a lie, some thoughts aren’t, many are half-truths...
