College: Let the Student Beware

Law school students are getting angry as they find that law schools have lied about the availability of jobs post-graduation. They're coming out with close to (and sometimes more than) six figures' worth of grad school debt only to find that the jobs are not there.

Most interesting was this quote from economist Richard Vedder:

"We are entering the age of the overeducated American, the person with college degrees who cuts hair, trims trees, drives trucks," he says.

The myth of a college degree being the key to success is slowly being exposed for what it is these days.
