I just spoke with a longtime friend who has decided to go to college (yay!). I am super excited that she had decided to get a degree however she has chosen to go to Daymar (sp) college.... After having a lengthy discussion with her about this school she still seems dead set on going there. I ask the question how much is to much because she is going to end up paying almost 30k for an associates degree in Criminal justice! I gave her 4 other options that are in her area that she could get the same degree for less than 8k. She still seems to want to go to Daymar (no clue why). Honestly I find it idiotic that anyone would pay 30k for an associates degree. After speaking with her I find she really shouldn't be starting any program until she understands the basis of what college is the various degree levels and student loans. She was not even aware until we talked that she was going to get student loans (she thought she was getting pell grants). I asked her to pull out all of her papers and let me help her understand and she has already signed a MPN. DO you think these colleges just see these people coming and go heck yeah we got another one! And honestly how much is to much for an associates? A Bachelors? A Masters?
