• My friend got a degree in egyptology,
but can't get a job, So he's paying
more money to get a Phd, so he
can work teaching other people
egyptology. In his case college is
literally a pyramid scheme.

    • If you’re gonna go for Egyptology maybe try moving to Egypt. Kids getting degrees they can’t get jobs for hope the tuition was worth it. Try a trade school it’s cheaper and trades are always hiring

    • Society needs to do a better job helping young people understand that not every major pays for itself. College is (supposed to be) an institution of knowledge and education. If that education can make you good money and pay itself off then that's just an added bonus, but it's not a given.
