Heed the advice that an academic education is no longer a wise investment that can guarantee a prosperous future. When I went to school, the internet was just starting to pick up. Today, you can learn anything you want with will-power and a computer with an internet connection.
Considering the fact that the average tuition at a competitive university costs about four luxury cars, we have to ask ourselves if it is really worth it?
The academic education industry has become a full fledged business focused on making profits. Makes me cringe seeing a Chancellor of a big university living in a luxury mansion while kids these days are really struggling to pay off their debts.
