I go to a school like Devry when I'm finished it will cost me $82,000 dollars and most of the people at my school are in the program that you are in or game design. The problem is so many people want that job the market is filled to the brim. I picked IT field information security field and have a previous back ground in telecommunications my wife went business. One thing that all of the people who attend our school and are not trying to get a degree in web design/game design know is that their is no job openings for that field. It's a sucker program which is a half art/ half adobe or art computer programs. 70% of your classes are fluff art classes no offense. Majoring in art is risky no matter what school you attend. But hey you can beat the system by enrolling in college till you die then you will never have to pay it back just do full time credits every year. I tell you now get out of that program and enroll in a field that people might find boring, accounting,IT ect

So I'm half way through my bachelors at devry (great school) for web/graphic design. My tuition was 67k. Well they just let me know they gave a modest increase starting June 2012.
It went from 67,000 to 71k. Seventy one THOUSAND dollars. That's for online. For those LIVING there on campus, it rose to 110k
Every single on campus person is 100k or more for tuition now. How.... why... what?????????? WHAT?
It's disgusting. Not to mention the fact they make you take stupid classes that have nothing to do with your degree at all. Like 4 classes of science at 2000 each is going to really help my web/graphic design.
I'm so PISSED right now I'm spitting fire. It'd be cheaper to leave Country. I swear. What's it going to be next year? 77k? ugh. Hindsight is SO loud right now. I shoulda done a trade school but I had zero idea about that even existing. I took online because I have no car and figured it'd be easier and to do it at my own time.
by the time I pay that crap off, it'll be over 150k with interest.
Do NOT do college. Do a trade school
Whatever happened to the days where if you had aptitude, you'd learn on the job and get trained that way? Hands on training and after a few years you'd be a pro at what you did? Why does everyone require a stupid 500 thousand dollar piece of paper to have you indebted for life? Why?
Sure there are a lot of wonderful things in life that aren’t free, but if I want to take a vacation out in the Bahamas to lay on a beach, drink a few cocktails, and check out the sunset, it’s going to take a little money to make that happen.

Tuition is pretty expensive. I spent the better part of 6 years in college. After everything was said and done, it ran me about $80,000. It took me some time, but I paid it off.
I hope this thread doesn’t turn into one of those…..”I shouldn’t have to pay anything because..Blah, blah, blah.
Nothing good in life is free and anything worth having take’s hard work and dedication.
If you want something bad, than do what it takes to obtain it. You knew what you were in for before you jumped on the band wagon, so don’t expect everyone else to pay your way when you can’t make it happen afterwards..
Nothing good in life is free
I respectfully disagree.
