    And we get to pay for your healthcare.

          I cant find the most recent to date statistics, but as of 2011, 17%+ of federally funded student loans were being charged off completely as losses. For those who don't know what that means....equate to it walking away from your house because you can no longer afford to pay the mortgage payments.

          Seeing as how these are federally backed school loans, and the government isn't getting paid....youd think they would take a look at how the costs are completely out of ****ing control for people, and change the way tuition works.

          apparently 21.8% of student loans are in default after 3 years. holy ****.

                  Most college grads are ill-prepared for settling into a career.

                  Be it maturity or actual training, it's pretty pathetic.

                            uhh...where?

                            round here they are only calling for snow showers, but it also says only a 50% chance, so they cant say how much of it.
