(Huffington Post)   President of Yale University: "The challenge is that college education costs a lot" and sometimes you're stuck with a worthless Harvard degree at the end of it all   ( divider line

lennavan: Fano: And is there any reason the cost keeps skyrocketing?

States fixing their budgets by giving less

fewer and less fewer tax dollars to the Universities.

That and firing all the English professors.

proteus_b: Actually he said something far less sensible. He said that he's troubled that the average student paying in-state tuition at a state university pays more than does a student attending Yale.

Tuition, room, board and expenses at Yale:

57% of students receive financial aid, with an average value of $35,500.

so the average Yalie pays $38,400 to go to Yale, after financial aid is reflected.

Tuition, room, board and expenses at University of Missouri:
and that's before taking financial aid into account.

I don't think he needs to trouble himself...

I learned three things in Missouri at a little place outside of Joplin called the Double Deuce.

hasty ambush: [ image 620x1060]

I can't stop thinking about doing dirty things to that dirty hippie.  I don't know why an ill-fitting bra would turn me on.

What about the buffoon lessons? The four years at clown college?
 I'll thank you not to refer to Princeton that way.

Just go to a state school and be smart and work hard and be the boss of people with ivy league degrees.  Tell them you paid $40,000 for your education and now you make more than them, so not only do you make more than them, your school is paid off so while all of their money goes toward loan interest while your money goes to fun things.  And though you shouldn't tell them, feel a softness in your heart while thinking about how hard they have to work while you're Farking away.  It's easy!  Come to my seminaaa.

This is why kids saddled with debt have to take whatever job they can get, leading to situations akin to indentured servitude.

Rapmaster2000: Sir, you have the boorish manners of a Yalie.

Harvardling and Yalie in the men's room. The Yalie just walks out after taking a leak. The Harvardling calls to him to stop. "At Harvard," he says unctuously, "we are taught to wash our hands after a bathroom break."

Yalie turns to leave but pauses to reply, "At Yale, we're taught not to pee on our hands."

[Old jokes are the best. You've heard that one 10 times? 20? More than 50?]
