- Don’t get an AA degree anywhere but at a super cheap community college. Go to a local community college, live at home, and get a part time job.
- Don’t take out anymore than $15,000 in loans.
- Try your damnest to get done in four years.
- Don’t choose a school based on the college atmosphere.
- Never get a Masters Degree in anything, except if it is guarenteed to increase your salary.
- Never get a PhD in anything.
- Never get any degree in a profession that doesn’t require a degree. (You don’t need an AA degree in party planning, for example.)
- I would like to tell people to avoid schools where the professors don’t actually teach any courses, but it’s hard to find positive examples anymore.

“Part of the reason [government intervention] has led to an increase in tuition and fees is because universities have zero incentive to lower costs,” she said. “They’ll spend as much money as they take in. And so there’s been no outward pressure on universities; they don’t have to worry about their bottom line because they know students can just go back, request more federal financial aid, [request] more federal subsidies, and they’ll have what they need to pay these increases in tuition.”

“The crime problem on our campus is, of course, exacerbated by our university’s affirmative action policy. Under our policy, we grant preferential treatment to minority applicants. But we only grant that preferential treatment to members of minority groups that are, on average, less educated and poorer than whites (e.g., blacks and Hispanics). The problem is that those groups that are less educated and poorer also exhibit higher criminal involvement than whites.”
