Whatever, I chose not to go into extreme debt over school and have only 5k left. I dropped out with 10k and now I have gone back to community college and still have a decent job. I have no pitty or sympathy for everyone who decided to take out 50k+ in loans and now can't pay it back.

You should. Many of them were convinced to do so under the impression that a degree meant better employement (pay). "Go to college so you dont end up working at mcdonalds or starbucks". A lie which has continued. Its only now that the older millennial generation has been out of college for 6+ years and is still struggling to move past these kinds of entry level jobs (or pay) that we are realizing it was a lie that has cost us big time.

I understand that they were mislead but we are ultimately responsible for what we decide to do with our money or lack thereof in gambling for a better future. I graduated high school around 911 time and yeah, it's bullshit schools cost a shit load. I still want to go a university to get my bachelors but if I go 40k+ in debt. I chose to do it and I know I am responsible for paying it back. For all the people wanting for these loans to be paid off, to hell with that, the money is going to come from somewhere and it damn sure aint going to be from the taxes I pay.

Have you noticed what it costs to finish medical school?

Still, no one is forcing you to do it. They chose a great career though that has a great ROI depending on specialty but dumbasses who take dance therapy and have crazy debt, too bad so sad.
