How come if being cynical is such a Millennial thing, so many of them got totally sucker punched by university tuitions?

Then again, if you are in physics, it's pretty much required.

If you do not go to a known and high ranked Grad school, then it is advised not to go at all. The best you can do most of the time is teach at a community college if you go to a less ranking grad school. Not worth much if you are not Ivy League, otherwise it is just another scam like undergraduate universities.

It saddens me that I actually get the gravity of the situation as a student who’s about to graduate college

You forgot to add the perpetual female student who has no intention of ever actually working at a career and is just wasting time while she shops for a husband.

students pursuing phd do get stipend on which they can live. Making fun of graduate students is fine, unless you are taking the negative stereotypes and exaggerating them. PhD comic guys make jokes on them too, but they don't demean anyone like this.

Is ranking 173 in the country really sucks? There are actually over 5,000 colleges and universities in the United States alone. It's still the top 5% in the country bro!

Many kids just go to party and have sex. College doesn't guarantee anything these days. Technical training is cheaper than college. Some things you don't need a degree like business.

Man i sure missed out on my grad school experience. All i did in grad school was two days of school, three days on field work, one day of work study, and four days of part time work. Damn, i never had a day off. Thinking about it, my chill days were the two days i had to attend class and learn.

Reason why people in the west are dumb. I mean their High school is a joke. Undergrad courses after second year they actually learn something. 2 years after boom they are done. Then they go to the workforce and be slaves for rest of their life. Pure middle class mentality.

There are some pros. You do get paid during a PhD program and you get summers off, plus when you graduate you'll have a much higher income potential, depending on your field of course.

Carter Chen (3 months ago)
For engineering, graduate school is simply a place to work for your professor for 2-3 yrs with lower salary. It only makes sense if ur prof has a good project for you, otherwise it is basically wasting 2 yrs doing nothing.

I know a lot of people who studies in grad school while working frm either private sector or the public sector. Just bcuz ure in grad school doesn't mean ur unemployed adult who still goes to school
Monika Ruwaimana (3 months ago)
Sadly this is true, some friends from my master have difficulties to find a job later, therefore they went back for PhD. The good thing is most of them got a scholarship for doing it, so they not really lost something or be in debt. I will never go to grad school if it not for the scholarship (the amount is much bigger from median salary in my country)..

I got a masters for STEM in 5 years but I think thats different because it is STEM which is actually useful.

I have a serious question, really if someone knows, how many top level (2-3 articles published after PhD, in international journals, at least 1 in a top level journal) grad students really end with no job? how many grad students that overperforms most professors really end in the street? because in understand that for many not very effective grads, but what about the best ones???
CheshireCrab (1 month ago)
Shk 1816 The statistics on those studies have been shown to be biased. They aren't accounting for an individual's employment attraction at all (i.e. Actual industry skills, portfolios, self-motivation). A masters can hurt your chances of finding a job with lower skill requirements, but then if you are going to grad school, why even apply for those jobs in the first place? It's all about proving your worth. Having a degree means nothing if you can't grasp the basic skills needed to use it.

I gotta say that this stereotype is true for many grad students, but not all. Depending on what career you want and what school you go to, graduate school is actually mandatory for getting a job. For example, a Film Studies degree is absolutely worthless on its own, but with a Master's at say "Sheridan College" where you get actual connections and experience in the film industry, it's the best thing to do. Or if you want to become a teacher or lawyer, you need a Bachelor's degree before you can get accepted into a teacher's education or law school.

I didn't get this until now, and it hurts me that I relate to the girl who needs grades or else she'll have a break down. I literally had a break down at work because I wasn't used to not knowing how well I was doing without grades. I got my pay and I got compliments for my work, but without looking at an actual score with a letter or number on whatever I did I never believed I was good enough. I felt like I was going to get fired at any moment without any visual warning signs despite it just being my first month on my first job. I am just hoping for a sign that will tell me that I am having an A or B plus performance and how many months of learning I truly need to be considered good enough for the subject. My job does expect me to go through a weekly book with my mentor to understand the important parts about my job, but due to us being busy with actual work, I can't actually finish it, so I feel like I'm falling behind no matter what else I do. So lesson is that school's grading system actually fucks with people like me who needs an actual visual sign to know our self worth.

It's coming to this point. I've always said why would someone be graduated from university but wind up working at Walmart? From what I observed they either haven't market themselves properly and willing to change geographic locations or even with their qualifications they may be over qualified, no demand in the job market for the degree earned or a combination of these.

Most of my friends from the honors college went to grad school, and I have a 9 to 5 instead. I want to go back one day. But hey, a 9 to 5 is pretty exciting for a millennial.

Graduated high school by the skin of my teeth and never looked back. Ten years later, I talk to my old friends I graduated with that went on to go to college to see how awesome their lives must be and they tell me they have a hard time paying back student loans, finding a job, getting paid well ect. Then I tell them I make between 60-85k a year, only work 9 months a year, and have no debts as an operating engineer. School is were you're taught, the real world is where you learn. Experience > Education
KiranasOfRizon (5 months ago)
>"47?" I said, "let's aim for dead." If you are still accumulating loans in grad school, you're doing it wrong. If you aren't being paid in the form of a research or teaching assistantship, you might as well not even go.

I am able to graduate 100% debt free because my 4-year education was about $35k and my private university master's degree is $930/unit with 46 units. So $80k for my full high education while fools are out there paying $40k a year for their undergrad.

People are in grad school to gain expertise and reach the cutting edge of their fields in order to be able to make contributions to it. Many if not most are going into an academic career which requires it. Sorry but people actually look forward to living a life of the mind. If it's not for you, don't knock it. Respect everyone's path in life. Simple as that.

No... No. No. No. Doctors, Lawyers, Accountants, CEOs, CFOs, COOs, great writers, artists, history researchers & anthropologists, musicians, linguists, scientists, ...engineers! They weren't lazy for staying in school. They weren't incompetent at life. That's a horrible inaccurate message downplaying the importance of education. It's completely irresponsible.
