RE: Student loans
Those are some very fair points muff. I am required in my current occupation to get certifications on a regular basis. The company does pay for them, they actually will reimburse me for my education as well. However, it must be related to the occupation. I think it works great, for that occupation.

I briefly went to school for computer science (roughly 1 year) and hated it. I paid my tuition and never went back, now I go back for necessary things. I do not see it as entirely necessary to get a full on degree depending on the occupation.

I think the idea of "needing a degree right out of school for a good job" is a huge issue as it has been passed down generation to generation to "think this way" - I am not saying education is bad, but spending tons of money and getting in debt to bounce from degree to degree only to find out you don't like something seems like a useless way to discover what a person wants to do.

I find hunting for a job simply because it pays well does not guarantee a persons satisfaction in life and is an equally poor decision making tool for an occupation.
