*lifts eyebrow* Over here in the Netherlands its still:
To get into college: have good grades
How to pay for college: either easily payable by a part-time job, the state funds it or your parents pay it. Yes you can get loans (from the same state that fund you no less) but hardly anyone needs them. Although I have to say going to college isn't considered special here. Its just an indication you stayed in school like you should have. Saying "hah i have a college degree" is a rather empty statement here..

That moment when silly foreigners think College as in University. I think my esteemed British friend is referring to College/Sixth Form, Further Education, which you do at 16+

Umm... Go to community college? It's cheap as **** , you can get financial aid and a loan, which you can easily pay back with a part time job, then if you do well you get guaranteed admission into a public state university, pick a good major, get good grades again, do an internship by the time you graduate, and that's about all you need to get a fairly legit job. This is what myself and 90% of the people I know have done, or are in the process of doing. It's not complicated. My brother followed this plan, got his degree in accounting and had 3 job offers when he graduated in the middle of 2010 right when we were balls deep in the recession. The issue is that our generation grew up with the "you can do whatever you want, be who you want to be" attitude, so people think that creative writing, graphic design, fine arts, basket weaving, etc. are actual degrees that will get them jobs. In reality you need something business, finance, or engineering related. All else is a waste of your time and money.

Getting into college is pretty easy I think...I mean, they want your money right?  And millions of dollars of unclaimed scholarships go to waste every year, so if people weren't so lazy (I'm guilty of this) they could get some scholarships easily.  As for working in your field, people go to college too quickly and then don't know what they really want to do...or get a degree in something you don't need a degree in.   
   
TLDR: I disagree.

This is a lie. It is no harder to get into college now then it was in 1983. On the other hand It is a lot more expensive now. They also have added extra crap to the degree requirements. These extras are usually not difficult classes but it does take your time and money.
#42 to #40 - zethyrr (08/19/2013) [-]
extra time and money = not harder? where is the logic in this?

its not so hard to get into/ pay for college. or to find a job, its just that everyone wants to go to the "best" college and make the most money in that field. if you get decent grades you can get accepted to like 70% of the colleges(universities) in canada. and get a very relevant job in that field, maybe not starting at $100,000. but i think kids these days don't realize you don't start at the salary that you end with. everyone wants everything handed to them nowadays but noones willing to put the time and effort in.

Yeah that's kinda why I wanted to be an engineer in the first place but everyone is wanting the same degree so I have to compete and I'm a lazy ****** .

Yeah right. I see a lot of dumbasses that some how made it to college. Even swagfags.

I find that a lot of people say that people easily find work when they get worthwhile degrees. This is not true at all. The reality is you need connections. My best friends gf graduated in bio-medical engineering, which is the highest growing career in the US and she is still having trouble finding work. I have 2 other friends who did computer science and they can't find work. I know 2 others who did chemistry, no work. And then there is me, I have 2 majors in Pure math and Statistics and a minor in Computer Science, no work...

Don't by the elitist ******** that says that you don't need college. Studies show that unemployment of HS graduates versus college graduates is 13% vs 2% in america and studies show even after paying off student loans that the average college graduate makes over a million dollars more than a high school graduate during the course of their life time. When Someone tells you not to go to college, that you don't "need" it be leery, they do not have your best interest in mind. They are not your friend.
