Graduate in 3 years to save money?

Posted in Misc at 10:09 AM by Joe From Boston


According to a recent Boston Globe article, a small but growing number of students is graduating from a 4-year institution in 3 years in order to save money.

With soaring tuition costs and the added difficulty of not securing loans, these students take more classes in order to graduate sooner and save money.

Some school officials are worried that 3-year students are over-taxing themselves and will burn out towards the end, and that students will miss the tradional period of self-exploration that college students enjoy.

While I agree that students to learn and grow on a personal level at college, don’t you think that 4 years at $40,000 is a rather expensive way to find yourself? 🙂
