Re: Not our parents' college experience

...which is why I'd advise people to get a trade before entering college, and put off going for a year or two. Real world work experience is more beneficial to college than the reverse, IMO. I'm a way better student because of having worked in "real jobs". Also, it's cheaper for middle-income people to wait (because of the age 25 limit for being independent, where the financial aid folks are concerned; I couldn't even GO to school full time until I was over 25).

It's doable, as long as we rethink our milestones (marrying earlier or later, going to school earlier or later). The current setup for upper middle class kids, isn't working anymore, because the surplus is no longer there. Believe it or not, i know working class people who are having an easier time with this problem and working their way through.
