Most people who graduate with 4 year degree's and 50k debt like yourself are not so lucky to find jobs to do so. I know a few people in that situation, with decent degrees (not some phooey liberal arts) who are working crappy jobs just to pay off the school debt. If you look on the net there are several thousands more in that situation. All I am saying is having professional work profile along with college degree is a plus,and getting out as much debt free as possible is great.

It wasn't so much luck as going for a decent paying degree, doing a ton of internships / on campus research positions and a ton of networking and extra curriculars. That **** does add up to help

Pro Tip: Go to a community college till you get most of your credits, then go to some fancy expensive school for your senior year so you have the big name on your diploma.

Also, there is a pic of my sister in med school in the pics of people on this forum thread.. go dig for it if you want it.

f**K that, buy a stripper or two and get some real life experience. Then save up some money and pay for majority of college out of pocket so the debt you accrue is no gonna kill you in the long run.
I have no idea what you're assuming or why you think having an education and a better paying job leads to a crappy life with less money. Yes, if you go to an expensive school for a philosophy degree, things might not work out. Don't be stupid and you'll be better off in the long run.

I have no idea why'd you assume to assume that assuming that having a education and better paying job will be had from gaining an College education right out of the wonder years. Some times not being stupid is not trying to be smart when you are at a stupid age in life.

Because the vast majority of "better paying jobs" require a college education. That's hardly an assumption.

It's not exactly a requirement that you act smart and "adult" to attend a university. Millions of people go to college as teenagers.

Out of the millions of college teens who attend, how many of them actually earn a degree or a job that pays them well off out the gate to make sure they live comfortable, And pay off the debt they accrue during that time at the University ? The old motto of finish high school, go to college, buy a house and you will live happily ever after is now bull schit.

Out of my group of friends from highschool it went as follows-

Me- Materials Science and Engineering degree- $50k+ job
Friend 1- Materials Science and Engineering degree- $50k+ job
Friend 2- Mechanical Engineering degree- $50k+ job
Friend 3- Mechanical Engineering degree- $50k+ job
Friend 4- Computer Engineering degree- $50k+ job
Friend 5- Pharmacy degree- $110k+ job
Friend 6- English degree- No job, fired from unpaid internship

So based on my sample size of 7 people, over 85% of teenagers who start college end up in well paying jobs!

You mean 85% of your bro'skies who started college as a teen ended up with a well paying job and comparing that to the national average is well... dumb.

Amongst people I know with college degrees vs. without and how they are doing in life, I'd say there is a very visible difference. There are always exceptions, but the trend is pretty obvious that having a decent college degree is the way to better pay.
