reven: im all for it, if you borrow the money you should pay it back simple as that. and if you get a 70k student loan, you expect to be in a job that pays well, otherwise its not really worth it.
Once was a time, you went to University to expand your own knowledge, to learn how to conduct research, to learn how to really think about things in new ways, and hopefully one day advance the sum knowledge of humankind.
Now it seems we just go to University to learn what is needed to do a job.
I think that's rather a shame.
