    I watched the whole video.
    I'm a Junior at ASU and just completed my first semester after transferring from a community college. I still need 4 more semesters, so I'll be walking out of there with a degree and a $55k student loan to pay back.
    I does seem that getting a degree has become a business.

    I stopped wasting my parents $ after two 1/2 years of the University BS. Ended up doing rather well without a 4 yr. degree.
    Props to those that see it through, but I just preferred to get into a job asap.

    Hard to get internships in a struggling economy.

    To be honest I wish I'd have gone to Vocational School and learned a trade, then associates then bachelors and legit worked my way through school. Because quite frankly my bachelors degree isn't doing shit for me. I'm working at a warehouse making 9$ an hour with a bachelors degree :(

    x2. I would have to move for anything related in my field which, with my expenses, is not doable right now.

    PkTaco, went to vocational school my junior/senior year of high school. Best decision I made.

    I know people working in factories with nothing but a few weeks of training under their belts making more than I could make with my degree. :(
