    Yes, there are scholarships for some students, but not all. And that’s not a particularly expensive school.
    Maybe you are thinking of community college/trade schools?
    (I just chose SU as an average school)
    In state tuition at Weber State is $3000 per semester. A room off campus, but walking distance is $500 a month, utilities included. That is part time job reachable.

    Jesus, leave it to the dentists at TGR.

    So at $15/hr it would take 20 full time weeks of work to pay for a year of tuition/room and no board. Sounds fair.

    Economy Added Significantly More Jobs Over the Summer than Initially Reported:
    https://www.newsandguts.com/economy-...ally-reported/

    The revisions have recast the narrative of a summer slowdown. In August, when economists expected a strong follow-up to the 943,000 jobs the economy added in July, the BLS announced the U.S. added only 235,000 jobs. Headlines dubbed it a colossal miss as job growth took a giant step back. Two months later, revisions based on additional data showed August jobs grew by 483,000, more than double the anemic original reading. It was the biggest positive revision in almost four decades.

    Unfortunately, I'm not sure my kids will be able to afford to live in Ogden as adults anymore. They may have to move to Virginia or something

    Ha! Touche. Good luck finding anything that cheap here, though. JMU is as average as they come and it's double that. There's always Liberty, I suppose (edit: nevermind, Liberty is outrageous).

    Don't get him started. He retired from IBM at like 45 with a full pension and owns a house with a basement apartment and the renter covers the full mortgage. So he's got it made, and good for him, but just about everything he says about the current state of affairs sounds like he just woke up from a 50-year coma.

    That figure is for a year, not a semester. Not that it excuses the exorbitant cost.

    Fair? what the fuck is fair?

    I did 4 years in the pen, worked part time and i came out fine with a degree and a pile of loans. care to guess what happened next? i got a job and paid the loans off!!!!! Is that fair?

    I'm wondering what means "fair" and why you think your dreamt up perspective of "fairness" even applies to this situation?

    i get a bit ruffled with this whole "Government should pay off all student loans" bullshit. People signed up, got loans, went to school, got a degree, and AS AGREED TO PREVIOUSLY, they now have loans to pay off upon gradumacation. No surprises there, right?

    Yeah, private schools are insane but state schools have gone way up too. Tuition for my first semester at Berkeley in 2000 was $1800. In my last year it was $2400. Now it's like $10k. Plus all of the other cost of living stuff has gone way up in price too.
    I ski 135 degree chutes switch to the road.

    Succinct and factual. Inflating numbers and choosing expensive private schools as an average/baseline makes the conversation divisive.

    thats not actualy all correct^^

    also Canada is different than America so I don't have to spend money on all them guns

    and its unnecessary to establish a perimeter

    but enogh making fun of America, what do kids do if mom and dad has already paid for uni and unless they have done a coop what do they know after they get out ?

    how much $$$$$ cost is the parents and their expectations for the Chipper or Brie ?

    I was expected to become an electriction or something like that so i exceed my parents expectations

    I don't recall cuing the other Boomers to chime in with how much easier it was for us to work and pay for our own college at the same time. Wife did it totally legit with ZERO support from her parents. 4.0 high school valedictorian, governor's prep school, and 2-3 jobs only took her 7 years to graduate.. Took us another 10 to pay off her loans. Easy peasy!!

    Now it costs five times as much or more than it did in the 80s..

    And my kids will definitely graduate with student loan debt. We're paying for about half of it upfront..
    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!

    Minimum wage in CA was like $6.50 during this time frame.

    I think its $14 now, maybe higher in Berkeley?

    Back in the dark ages when I went college, I found it was a lot more efficient to take a semester or two off and work full time. Got some real jobs on the resume that paid more than college town gigs. Always a danger of not going back to school.

    I am pro-drug but huffing toluene is generally a bad idea.

    College has a ROI, and you can absolutely shrink it if you're spending too much of your time washing dishes.
    Looking back the most productive and useful undergrad jobs long term were the people who worked off campus at a semi-challenging “real” job like assistant manager of a store or restaurant. The other jobs not so useful.

    edit: and I wouldn’t expect this to pay for an undergrad education. Yeah. Some tgr work from home sales drone can pick the cheapest state school around with instate tuition but gfy.

    I was a manager of a couple different retail luggage stores when I was in grad school.
