Before I went to business school I was told I would make 50 or 60 K a year after graduation. I believed that and I went to college after my divorce to help me get out of poverty.
But, I've graduated, in 2005... and I make 1.50 cents more an hour than I did before I went back to school.
AND I have 27,000 of student loans.
I'm going to put off paying them by actually going back to school for my grad degree. haha Maybe by then something will happen where I have more money. lol
I think that schools should be more honest about earning potentials of most of the students. I am an older student and my earning potential is LESS than if I was 22 and just graduating fresh and new... there IS age discrimination.
But also it is unrealistic in most careers to make 50K out the gate. Maybe in the 80's but not today.
