This is one of the unique properties of this bubble.

You can't turn around and sell your degree like a house or a bitcoin.

When the value of an asset goes down at least you get some of your money back even if you cut your losses. With a degree you are stuck with nothing.

FSU grad sells degree for $50,000 on eBay

im doing more research on this, i'll happily sell my computer engineering degree LOL
That's nothing.

Where I come from, kids bribe driving instructors to get their licenses.
Aaand we wonder why my country has a rising rate of lethal accidents....

And in some states in my country, the royals sell 'datukships' (something like a knighthood) to any Tom, Dick or Harry with dough, for up to six figures (in my nation's currency).
Before I get political, to the 'datuks' credit, they had to have good businesses that provided some measure of value to earn enough cash to buy that title in the first place.

Five easy steps to get a Datukship in Malaysia

But as a 'datuk', you get some good access to networking with high-net worth individuals, some discounts from nice restaurants and maybe front-row seats to development projects to invest in?

lmao... any takers?
Ignoring the fact that this is a joke, she may be looking at this the wrong way

"Stephanie Ritter says her non-existent job offers, coupled with her mountainous student loan debt, is enough to make her trade in four years of education from the Tallahassee, FL institution."

OK, we get it... not what you expected...

Degree is in and 6-figure offers are not raining on your head. Noone held a gun to her head and forced her to go to college/take on debt just like noone forced myself or any other graduate.

It's done.

Now instead of "I did it - everyone give me", it should be more about "what can I offer the world that they want/need"

If I'm not prepared yet, that's fine. This is the beginning of a long journey. What skills and experiences do I need to accumulate so I can add value at the level I want to.

While college is probably overpriced for what you get in return, it is not the problem here (or at least not the only one).

On a positive note, I am sure this will get a ton of attention. Perhaps Stephanie should take a look at marketing....

Hopefully I haven't ruined a good joke too badly here :rofl:

If you look at her twitter account, you'll see she's full of memes and attention whoring.

She had a follow-up here: FAQ and stated it was a joke because she's a comedian. She has (had) a job that she likes. Apparently, people started harassing her.

I was going to say more about college and majoring in Theatre, but since it was a joke, I don't feel like I should get involved. A joke can be left as exactly that.

Education is what you make of it. There is enough flexibility in most degrees and institutions these days to build the education you want or need. The problem as i see it is that most people enter education with the wrong mind set.

LOL she said, she wasted 4 year life in the University, but wait, degree in Bachelor of arts?? I think that is too hard to find any suitable job unless you start selling your arts or become lecturer or whatsoever. Just don't lose hope.
