Some are just trying to meet the by now almost universal requirement of a BA for many entry level jobs that don't really need one, so why would they go through
engineering courses or burden themselves with things they can't handle?
Some are really interested in pursuing a related career and masters degree--I suppose these are the suckers in many of you guys view.
Some don't give a fuck and just like to learn because money isn't an issue.
Some don't give a fuck because college is just another extended party and money isn't an issue.
If you are getting a BA in comm because it's a necessity to get an entry level job... You don't have to get it from GWU, NYU or Brandeis man...
Especially if you aren't from a family with strong financial backgrounds...
That's the problem that partially erupted that stupid OWS debacle.
Ok, you can like to learn but you have to realize stuff costs money.
Easy access to student loans is a double edged sword because it gives people who should go to trade school the ability to rack up serious back crushing debt just because they "like to learn"
What happened to the old days when you were poor and cant pay for it you sucked it up and went to farm or fix cars despite the fact that you "desired learning"
