What your degree is in doesn't mean dick. All that matters is where your degree is from.
250K? Not even Harvard's that much. Not even close
Check the link below from USC. The say that total cost of attendance per year is $62,245. I gave kids the benefit of a doubt that they will graduate in 4 years, but we all know that it could be five. Still...
$62,245 x 4 = $248,980.
If they go 5 years, you are looking at $311,225.
USC Financial Aid, applying for and receiving financial aid, undergraduate, costs

Unless you are getting a full ride or your parents are paying for it I dont see how you could possibly justify racking up that much debt in student loans.
I don't believe the name on the degree at all unless you aim to be a professor or something.
I got into UNC, Duke, UM, and UF. UM and the out of state schools had ridiculous prices for a undergrad degree. Because of Bright Futures I didn't even consider them.
That is why in the end I choose FSU, they offered me the best financial aid and perks. If you take advantage of what is put in front of you and work your ass off you will be able to excel during the MCAT/LSAT/PCAT/DAT etc.
A name on a degree might help with the initial job slightly but after that it is all up to you and your work ethic.

Holy chit! You're totally right. That's insane. Tuitions have literally doubled since I last looked at this ish.
Not worth it. Go to state school
Shocking that the default rate is through the roof
No kidding...Steven Spielberg and George Lucas were the guest speakers for the opening of the new USC School of Cinematic Arts, and in his speech, Spielberg said..."If every Trojan in Hollywood called in sick ONE day...the entire industry would shut down" I'm certain that first, and foremost, he was speaking of all the technical people USC has educated, along with impressive number of the directors, producers and writers.
Tell me why the Music industry is any different.
Networking is a huge attraction for any student that wishes to work in the entertainment business, and USC provides one of the best.

come now brem...you know as well as I, who pays that full tuition....USC has more graduate students/foreign students than undergrad.
A few friends of mine received a more generous financial package than the public universities...including Cal and UCLA.
Add the recent endowment donations for pure merit based scholarships...well, doesn't matter who, or how much, your parents earn.
Sorry man, I'm going to have to go in loco parentis because it's clear you were raised by idiots.
Get your ducks in a row and transfer the hell out of FSU.
It doesn't matter what you pay to attend Duke. You will make that up in spades in the long run. MCAT/LSAT/GMAT etc? Where do you think the top med, law and business schools fill their classes from? There were 800 people in my business school class. Guess how many went to FSU? Zero. Guess how many went to Duke? Many.
A degree from Duke will open doors that you still don't even realize exist. For the rest of your life. FSU will not. Period.
Duke is the obvious example, but UNC, UM... You take those and run over FSU.
Regardless, you wanna know how I know with a 100% certitude that you didn't get into Duke?
This is such utter bs, I hope your still in high school. In the long run, what school you attend matters far less than your work ethic and desire to improve.
First job out of college? Yep.
Btw, nobody will care about your business school class or where they went to school 10 years from now. You might still be trying to pay off that debt though.
Brem is a graduate of the top public university in the country. Cal Berkeley.
Two thumbs up!!
60K a year??!! Sorry, I'm just having some sticker shock.
Regardless of need based and merit scholarships, I'd imagine that a great many students and families have to go into some serious debt.
You know how USC got the "University of Spoiled Children" rap...well, they pay full tuition, and a good number make large donations after they leave. # 8 rank in the "Billionaire Colleges" ranking. USC is one of the most economically diverse universities in the country.
The wealthy pay..the disadvantaged, full ride scholarships.
California is full of hippies
It's not BS man. I'm sorry. But don't mistake my meaning... FSU grads are by no means screwed. You can go to school anywhere, you don't even need a diploma... If you are determined enough and good enough you can do anything.
I went to a big public school and an Ivy so I'm speaking from experience, not just out of my arse. And the latter has opened more doors and afforded me more experiences than I could possibly put into words. It was, and will always be worth the money. Looking back I'd have happily paid triple.
Really funny though... A buddy of mine that went to Harvard just moved to Texas to work in the oil and gas business. First report back... "I'm totally fvcked. All the senior guys are aTm grads and they think I'm a faggot"
It depends on where you're trying to get said first job. Could you, as a finance major for example, get a job at, say, Goldman Sachs after going just anywhere to college? Sure, you COULD. But if you go to one of the more prestigious universities, I can guarantee you'll have a much easier road getting there than everyone else. But, that kind of job isn't for everyone. Nor am I saying going to any school you want makes it impossible to get there. But denying the path becomes easier to traverse is naive.
And that's kind of my point. How many full ride scholarships are they going to send out for this? I'm guessing not many. Most of the kids that will enter this program are from rich families who can afford the 60k+ yearly cost of attendence. That's fine... that's a drop in the bucket for many families. I'm just saying that the "worth" of the degree for most of the graduates is not going to be $250k considering that they likely could get to where they want to go without it. It's basically going to be one of those "fun majors" that kids choose to enjoy their college experience.
Well, if you are talking about small state schools then yeah.... a finance degree from Penn would blow that out of the water. But if you are talking about Penn State, it's different. Penn is certainly more highly regarded, but PSU has enough cache where you will still be able to get that Goldman Sachs job but pay half of the cost for your degree.
It's all relative.
