if someone goes to an Ivy League school I expect them to be running the world soon - not being a waitress. So I think that has to do with their standards slipping to begin with.
I don't remotely feel sorry for her 120K there - it costs me about $3 - 4K per semester (full time - 15 - 18 credit hours) to attend and that includes books. And I'm still not going in for a loan after this semester - I'm just bowing out.
Apparently I'm going ot be better off than she is. And here I am thinking I've made the wrong decision - but other people and their debt issues have made me see otherwise.
