    It seems to me that the price of a college education has escalated to extremes..........probably because of student loans and other credit sources. Personally I hope it pops with a loud bang so that the price of a college education would more closely resemble its worth. Stosh

    I was referring to non-gov't, private colleges in the U.S. without having a scholarship. It just seems ridiculous to pay so much to sit in a class usually taught by a graduate assistant.....I learned more taking correspondence courses. A few decades ago, it was possible to pay your way through college working part time without having to go deeply in debt. This was before the availability of easy credit. Stosh
