Hey art majors: What if I told you that you had the opportunity to commute between New York City and Paris every week for four years AND have a lifetime membership to the Louvre in your posession? Would you be interested? If you gave up your college education, THAT is what you could buy/afford for yourself.
Private school film majors: How badly do you want your super sexy, brand spankin’ new camera and being able to rent out a soundstage for 9 months? You could have it all for the cost of your college education.
What about you, private school business majors: How would you feel if I told you that Google (yep, the real Google) was started and built on HALF of the cost of your college tuition over four years?
Doesn’t that blow your mind a little bit?
BuzzFeed released this absolutely mindblowing video stating some of the countries most popular majors, the price of the college over 4 years for that particular major and what you could do with your life and that money if you chose not to spend it on school. The cost of the average college education has been making national headlines for years now. As so many college students (some brilliant, and some well…not so brilliant) have been living at home trying to come up with a plan to pay of the debt they thought they would so quickly be able to pay off once they got their job right after graduation.
Except there’s one problem. There is no job, and all of your debt is still there. Sitting in the back of your head, weighing you down as you mope around your house trying to figure out why you thought it was a good idea to spend a quarter of a million dollars on an education that brought you right back to the bed you were sleeping in when you were 12 years old. People have been asking themselves if spending all of that money on college is really worth it these days. And while it is proven that college grads earn at least $20,000 more per year than high school grads, is it still the path you would choose instead of living out the dreams you’re going to school to fulfill?
Think about it.
