I never understood the idea of spending higher amounts for the private colleges unless for some reason there was a specialty degree that wasn't available at a public equivalent.  Nursing is a good example.  

I think I've actually mentioned this here before, maybe not, but a family at my church, their oldest son decided he wanted to get into politics. So he went to Lenoir Rhyne University here in Hickory, a big private school that is expensive as hell, to get a Political Science degree. His younger brother, who I'm close with, went to Appalachian State, public school, one hour from here. He got a degree in finance. Younger brother works in Charlotte now, 25 years old, making good money working for some bank, I can't remember where, but his older brother, with the poly-sci degree, interned for Senator Richard Burr and was all giddy about it, just KNEW he was going to be a big deal in politics...he's currently making $35k a year working for a police department near Charlotte, in the office lol..dude prob is sitting on $80k in student loan debt because he HAD TO GO to the big private school here. That is why I say fuck em all, he knew what he was getting in to..

Well, Im of the opinion that one wouldnt actually have to eat the corn out of Chynas shit to know that nothing good could come of it. - Portalesman
