You think college is a scam, try being stupid and try getting a professional job without one.
It\'s the cover charge for life.
College is the biggest scam going. Especially private college. Rip off! Overpaid administrators just racking in the dollars at the expense of the student and parents which is leading to hundreds and thousands of dollars in debt upon graduation. This will not stop either as the college employees know that they are going their money no matter what (i.e. student loans).
So its hockey or bust for your guy? Should at least look into a certificate of some type. Life is hard being a laborer for 50 years, body usually dosent hold up that long.
