getting into college is easy, finishing is hard.
After you AS or AA, you realize that geting your BS or BA is nearly 10 to 15 times what you already put in and you still are paying off the previous debts. And trying to pay for the next two years is impossible as even the lowest entry in your field of study requires a Bachelors. So you are forces flipping hamburgers, between paying off rent, your car loan, utilities and food. You will never save for college. What about scholarships? Can't get that unless you are registered and with a $48,000 tuition, good luck putting a payment in to start classes and PRAY you win one. Yeah you might win one, like $500 but seriously, how are you going to pay for the rest?
You have to be born with a silver spoon in your mouth, be that special snowflake (1950's term not the 2015 term) or of blue blood.
