Pretty damn close.... 70k borrowed for a BA in some liberal arts bullshit. Now add another 50k for a masters degree. It'll only take what? 30 years paying that off while flipping hot dogs at 7-11? What a great deal!

Grad school is literally the most difficult thing I've ever done and I used to be bomb squad in the Army. I guess it depends on what department you're in?

let's be honest, the only people who complain about college are people who are stupid and went to a trash school or majored in gender studies.

Some people genuinely love learning and want to explore their field more deeply. That's not very funny for a YouTube video though.

This is the best one of the bunch! "...Because it's not unemployment, if you're paying tuition!" Oh, that's painful.

random observer (21 days ago)
Funny how people have forgotten that there used to be a common phrase "graduate and professional school" or "graduate or professional education" precisely because a distinction was being made between training for the "professions" and graduate level education with an academic career in mind. The former was understood as vitally necessary. The latter was not once upon a time denigrated because it attracted small numbers actually likely to end up in academic posts, their role to perpetuate the academic lineage. Honorable. The boomer expansion of higher ed didn't eliminate that- there are always such people. But it also created the cultural archetype of the perpetual student who wasn't really qualified or necessary for that mission. We've all met them.

It really depends on the job you want. If you need Masters Degree, then yeah, you need to go to Grad school. But for most jobs, a high school diploma or GED will work just fine. After all, most jobs are just looking if you can do the assigned job well. And if you're unemployed, just join the military. Pretty good pay.

Life is about getting someone to support you in exchange for your work. It can be your employer, it can be your family. Smart people tend to pick the ones that will allow them to grow.

CollegeHumor making fun of getting higher degree education whilst their fans laugh and cheer. Speaks volumes about the intelligence level of their target demographic.

I mean... it really depends on the graduate degree you are getting. Yes getting a PhD in gender studies or poetry is a retarded waste of time. Physics, chemistry and other sciences though, not so much.

The people who made this video have never been to grad school. Or talked with a grad student. Grad school is HARD. As a Ph.D. student, you have to teach, take classes that are way harder and move way faster than undergrad classes, pass qualifying examinations (way harder than anything you ever saw in undergrad), and advance your field by doing research that gets published. The pace is insane. And you have to figure pretty much everything out on your own, because people generally don't help grad students. The prevailing attitude is, if you can't figure it out on your own, then maybe you don't have what it takes. Grad school is a trial by fire where you either emerge a proven professional or wreck your life.

What school fails to teach is that there's life beyond these walls and that not everything needs to revolve around default settings... -_-

Hey most people go to grad school because they are really interested in research and they really care. It takes a mind set. People who don't have that mind set won't like it, much like the people who brought up the idea for this video.

The message is so true. Lol. I know people that went back to graduate school because they couldn't get a job. I almost went back graduate school also until I found out the cost and I'm already in debt from college the first time.

Sooooo should i not go to grad school when I graduate college? I want to be a lawyer I don’t want to be these losers
Mrnevertalks (5 months ago)
Forgive me if this comment was meant as a joke. Sometimes it's difficult to tell on the internet. This video is satire, incredibly overdone satire at that. I get that people have aneurysms regarding anecdotal evidence, but all of the grad students I know are well adjusted individuals, many of whom had rewarding careers and are going to school for a career change. They are passionate people who are very damn knowledgeable about what they do. I wouldn't make the decision to forego meeting these people because of a college humor video. Besides, if you want to be a lawyer, I really would suggest grad school. If you want to advance to being a judge, grad school would definitely help.

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.

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!
