    Current unemployment rates for college grads per The Motley Fool web site (usually pretty well researched): 3.9%. This is less than half the national average. Go to school. We're all doing everything we can to ensure a PP 14.

    This. I can tell you from the HR perspective that a degree is a huge factor in hiring decisions, even when it probably shouldn't be. It also impacts pay significantly.

    You know what? Just send your parents to this discussion. They'll see we're not Satanic monsters or serial predators and that we're telling you to get an education. How convincing is that? :saint:

    Well, I am an Assistant Professor; so I would be happy to give a lecture and assignment if that makes your parents happy. Otherwise I agree with others, take the tuition over the fest. You have many years of concert going ahead of you. Take the long term benefit over the short term.

    + whatever.

    BTW, I read somewhere that over $20mil/year of grant money goes unpaid because nobody sends in an application! If your parents cannot cover the cost of school, do whatever you have to do to get your degree--you will make up for the student loans 10X over with your increased salary.

    Teachers are going to be pissed at me, that's for sure.

    Oh, well. This is Mecca for prog/powerheads. Maybe it will open up some new doors, too.

    You're not in High School. You're paying money, teachers don't give a fuck if you show up or not.

    Missing 2 days in some of the classes I took would severely affect your grade.

    Time to close the thread. Further discussion should be held over at the Lounge.
