Even If You’re NOT an Accounting Major….
According to Google, the average college/university tuition in the US is $26,000 a year, but they range up to nearly $90,000 per year.
We know this, these are statistics.
Philosophy majors in the US make an average of $62,000 per year. The same for history majors. English majors average $56,000. All teachers in public schools average $65,000 (private schools $50,000). We know this, these are statistics.
Apart from a very wealthy family supporting you, how much debt can you incur and pay off (while paying for housing, insurance, raising a family, etc.) in what amount of time given your loans and your intended occupation?
If you can’t make those numbers work without defaulting on loans or begging the government for help that others didn’t receive, maybe you need to rethink college. Or, at least, private schools.
And, of course, maybe the government needs to rethink a ridiculous system in the public sector, at least, before it implodes.
