Why do people continue to make stupid education choices and go into 200k into debt for a useless degree?

Like what the hell are you people even thinking? 200,000 in debt for a degree in anthropology? What the hell are you smoking.... Did you even research what jobs you can get with a bachelors in anthropology? These are serious life changing choices and you go 200,000 in debt for.. and you can't even take 30 minuites to research what you want to do with your life. Some people are literally clueless... and it makes me sad. Student loan debt is serious business, it's not just a game

    Stupid people are desperate to get a piece of paper that claims they are smart. Money is no object.

    Some people like to wave their degree around in people's faces. Llewen does that.

  • Everyone wants the highest degree quality nowadays especially due to increased competition globally. So i would say yeah, they would think they would repay their debt after getting a degree and securing a job.

    Liberal Arts degrees do pay off. It's a proven fact. According to Forbes, Business degrees are the ones that are a waste of money. And so much of the IT sector is offshored that IS and CS degrees aren't worth a lot.

    Remember when HuffPo laid off a part of their staff. One of them took to Twitter, asking if anyone had a job for someone with a degree in romantic comedies.

    I imagine she had offers aplenty.
