    as much as i feel bad for her, she should've been aware that loans have interest. this really just emphasizes the point that ppl need to make sure that they understand how loans work before getting one


    edit: wait some ppl in the replies are saying that the math doesn't add up. u sure this woman isn't lying?

    This is torture for real. Are student expenses in the US this huge for all colleges? or only the prestigious ones? Sorry, I am really clueless about this topic.
    In my country, we get paid to study lol.

    Come on now, society has made it the norm to take these fresh 17 and 18 year old high schoolers and tell them that they're gonna live in their parents basement and work at McDonald's (best case scenario) if they don't go to college right after graduating and definitely made no effort to educate them on money management...I don't think the blame rests on her.

    when i say she should've been aware, i'm not blaming her as the reason for not knowing. i was trying to say that it's unfortunate she didn't know about all this. ik that education on money management and the pressure to pursue post education are big, and most people don't think twice on it. i just really think this should be talked about more and people, especially younger people need to be taught this stuff

    I definitely agree with you that they should be taught. So many people signing up for something they know very little about.

    Before we think about robbing people of their hard earned money. Let's 1st place regulations on these places of education that are effectively running like cut throat businesses wth their overpriced products.

    Fair?

    It's way more complex than being able to just point a finger at one villain. The whole system needs to be changed. Until that happens though, students need to be smart about it. Take advantage of community colleges. Maybe go to a local school and commute from home, even if that doesn't give you the "college experience". And for the love of god, think about what careers you can go into with your degree and decide if the cost is worth it. I know too many people who went to crazy expensive out of state schools and got a degree in something like poetry and then complained about not even being able to keep up with the interest on their loans with their job making coffee at Starbucks. Be smarter people!

    Also, you can make a damn fine living in the trades if you are willing to put in the time and effort, no college required for many of them.

    Yes, studying in the United States is very expensive. The prestigious colleges are even more expensive than simpler ones. It is especially difficult for the first few years when you are just starting your studies, then even taking a part-time job is problematic. In my case, the only normal solution would be payday loans online. I just don't see another solution and the percentages are normal, so for me, this is the best option.
