Not a Buyers’ Market…
Has the degree industry become like the real estate industry? (And yes, I did say degree industry on purpose) Are you upside down in the return on your investment? Did you pay more for your degree yesterday than its’ worth today? Upside-down mortgage…does that sound familiar?
Or perhaps the purchase of a college degree is metaphorically more reflective of the purchase of a car. What is exactly the total cost of ownership of a 2012 model college degree? The moment your drove that shiny new degree off the university lot, did it depreciate in value? If you sold your degree back to the university would you be upside- down in that car note?
Just like there is sometimes a great time to buy, or a great time to sell, could there possibly also be a great time to get educated?
