    Of course no one was $80,000-200,000 in debt in your day--that was NOT POSSIBLE to accrue in the pursuit of education.  
    While it is possible to accrue that kind of debt for a college education today, you don't have to, and you certainly shouldn't.

    It is now possible to spend $200,000 on college if you go to a very expensive designer label type college, just like it's now possible to spend $200,000 on a car.  But you don't have to, and if you're broke, you don't.

    Likewise, it is possible to put the entire cost of your education on loan.  But you don't have to do this, and unless you are wealthy, this is unwise.  You take out just enough loans to pay the part that you can't cover through work, grants, scholarships and savings/parental support.

    Linking to a news article is journalism in the same sense that putting a Big Mac on a paper plate is cooking.
