Asking Too Much of Our Troops -- And Not Enough of College Students

Commented Aug 4, 2010 at 12:11:49 in College

“I'd join the military if we weren't at war for something I don't support -- the main reason for joining would be to pay to down the debt from being "coddled" as a graduate student. I'd much rather have 4-months training and then be thrown into the workforce, but the education system doesn't allow that.

Instead I'm required to get an accredited degree that takes three and half years, then practice for a year before sitting for licensing exams. Get a clue William.”

“My article talks about college freshmen (teenagers), not about graduate students in demanding programs. I wish you the best of luck with your program and with your exams.”

“You can start by lowering the COST of tuition....and providing some aid to the student body, that will undoubtedly be left to clean up the mess left by those ahead of us whose only ideals were based in "getting theirs."

Everyday I question my decision to leave a decent job to return to graduate school in an effort to help re-shape the mass chaos left by the previous decades unplanned and unsustainable growth and development.”

“I wish the students in America could organize opposition on issues like this...instead we get raped without knowing what happened to us. I'm in graduate school and paying out the wazoo and I look at salaries of professors and staff at my university and it makes me throw up in my mouth. Have a look for yourself, it's a 586 page document:

“I'm sorry to hear this....I'm currently in graduate school and wanting to go back for something that can help make our way of life better in this country, yet I regret racking up any form of debt as in the end we are helping to push forward the "progress wheel" for the country. The only problem is, the country is set on ravishing us in the process.....it is a fundamental flaw for the US as we are destined to become a nation of uneducated (or so called) morons. Because really, who wants to sign their life over to loans?”

“Why the hell does the reduction to 10% of income and 20 years for forgiveness not become effective until 2014?!?!?!?

I'm sure it will be repealed by then anyways....This administration needs to remember WHO elected them”

“who said it is not effective til 2014?... the new student loans start this fall at my school”

“Fan #2 and yes, it shouldn't take that long, but that is the way it works.

Now, if you don't want it repealed, keep Obama in the White House until 2016. Then work to get someone else there, especially remembering the damage to the Supreme court of those 20 Reagan/Bush years.”
