It’s no secret that higher education costs are skyrocketing (the average price tag for one year at a private university in 2011 was about $33,000), while at the same time graduates are finding it increasingly harder to find decent paying jobs -- or a job, for that matter. Sure, the unemployment rate among college graduates is substantially lower than, say, the national average, but is it really worth spending four years in college accumulating hundreds of thousands of dollars in student loan debt only to face diminishing job prospects upon graduation? Perhaps it is. But the good news is that...
Huh? You can go to a State University for much less. And if you're smart enough to walk away for a valuable degree in a skill, you can pay it off in 5 years. Getting a Liberal BA BS degree at moderate UC in California isn't going to work out so well at that 30k. It's not like even the liberal corporate jobs have much use for women's studies degrees.
