Hopefully when the dust settles and prices begin to regulate, our middle class can once again afford higher education.

While I have little sympathy for twenty-somethings who ring up college credit card debt on stuff like weekend dinners at TGIF, spring break to Cancun, Ipods & Blackberrys etc, where today's kids do have it alot worse is absurd tuition, whether it be community college all the way up to the Ivy League.

"And 40 percent said they paid no attention to cost in searching for a college." - Here we go again. Same as with "subprime mortgages". People don't do any research, don't read fine print and then are crying when it comes time to pay.

I never went to college and make more per year than 95% of U.S. adults. I believe part of the problem is that we instill in our children that they will be failures without college. It is the exact opposite -- if they follow their dreams and not the money, they will usually be successful. Money does not define success -- it is merely a bonus.

This is the first time I had ever applied for a loan. I couldn't have asked for anything more from the staff that answered any of my questions to the application process. Once this had all been completed the money was transferred quickly into my account. I will definitely be recommending 911PDAY .COM ( ) too my friends and family.
