Hey it's not cheep to go for an education. And the point of going for an education is to put yourself in the best possible position for graduation where you income will be greater than if you had not gone to further your education.
Sadly some very smart people.....are not only odd.....but....well...not well off.
I never mentioned salary, but I don't disagree: Engineering doesn't pay. It's the smartest people doing the hardest work for lower pay than the business folk.
They are still the most intelligent people out there.
