Falwell's comments there were in response to Katrina, but I think he did say some similar things about 9/11

I dont know how to print screen on a mac but something lately that has been infuriating me is people saying student loans should be "the same rate as loans given to big banks". As if overnight loans given to a bank are the same as your 300k student loans in anthropology.

What rational person would loan money to an anthropology student? The student loan system is beyond fucked.

You are just being a majorist. Everyone should have an equal opportunity to have any education they want regardless of price or ability to pay back student loans.

Yes, I'm proud of my majorism. Communications, English Literature, Gender Studies, and Anthropologists are the lesser majors. They should be eliminated.

The undergrad business major should go before any of those do. And considering how many law school grads can't find jobs nowadays, they shouldn't be eligible for student loans either.

They should be paying people not to go to law school.

Agreed on the business school.

Actually, much to my surprise, I have read this is a highly in demand major. Apparently it's useful in a multitude of graduate studies.

Full ride, bitch. That's why I went to a shitty state school instead of Yale.

Pio, I must challenge you here. Anthrofuckolist can't possibly be in demand. If it is I will donate a extra sawbuck to the race for the cure tomorrow.

I've written on this before. It's only a matter of time until legal services are out sourced to India. Going to law school now is a scam.

If you talk to the average 2nd or 3rd tier law school applicant, they all seem convinced that they're going to be top 1% of their class and get a Big Law job. Presumably they'd also think they would be one of the rare few to pass the bar.

Isn't a lot of that already happening?

Stuff like contract review and such is being done online and in India.

And of course outsourcing can be done to an impoverished area like this
