Re: Anyone following the college scandal?
Maybe I am old school. I had work my ass off to get into university. I had to work my ass off in university. I cannot understand pushing a kid into school for what? Your ego? TBH, in my neck of the woods, the people with 4 yr degrees aren't doing half as well as people who have taken up a trade. Plumbers, Electricians, etc. etc. I guess at a certain income level, it would be anathema for your kid to get their hands dirty. (a good friend is an MBA, has degrees up the wazoo, encouraged his son to become an Electrician. The kid pulls down more than his old man) I handle several electricians whose annual income is rather impressive. Same with plumbers I have handled. There ain't enough jobs on Wall Street or Silicon Valley, and buying a place for a student that does not have the credentials or the want of an education, and therefore denying a place for a student that would be both qualified, and desirous of an education is frankly criminal.
