    I actually got back $50 for a book of a mine that cost $70. On the other hand, I only got $17 for a $55 book.

    I think is mostly has to do with what classes are in demand. Classes with online textbooks sometimes don't have enough hardback books for students. You tend to get back more in my experience.

    Yeah.

    ****ing. Amazing. Racket. It's kinda ****ed up that you get charged $250 for a book you BARELY USE except for some stupid code for an online pseudo-class, where all the work is, then you can't sell it back, even though it would cost them like $0.000001 to add a new code, or just let you get another code (which also should be cheap). I mean, goddamn, tuition is bad enough.

    I have to pay more to take my history exam. Granted, it's not much, but still. It's REALLY shitty.

    I feel your pain. It's gonna cost me at lest $200 to take my NCLEX and that's not counting the $175 fee for my Florida license application (compared to the $50 the application would cost me if I was going to stay in Illinois and get my Missouri license hahahahhaha... /quiet sobbing). Or the $50 it's going to cost me to take my exit exam.

    But all those people struggling out there should just go to college, right? Just get a degree and you're right as rain. It doesn't cost that much, right? Student loans? You have to pay those back? Are you sure?

    it's not a surprise that education is just a business.

    and the reason it works is because for most people college is a reasonable investment

    I don't see any problem with that.

    SPPF Confession #371:

    I'm a straight male, 18 years old, and I love Taylor Swift's music. I've bought all her CD's. I know the lyrics to practically every song. I even have the Deluxe Editions for Speak Now and Red.

    I can't ever sell any of my books back, so I end up buying digital versions. I usually pay 20 bucks tops for them. (barring a few greedy outliers). It definitely makes up for not being able to sell them, and cuts on the clutter.

    And my community college courses don't even require any books. Web design so everything is on the computer. I don't even have to get the software, since tjeu have a mac lab I can use whenever I want. Plus tuition at 1/3 the rate of the nearby public university. Have I mentioned I like community college a lot better?

    For most of them it's a non-profit buisiness. Which is sometimes funded by the state. They aren't large multinational corporations who have to impress shareholders with growth in profits every year. I don't see why some of them have to act like they are.

    Number 2 is definitely a problem. College would probably be at least a bit cheaper, if people stopped trying to make it be a babysitting service for middle class and higher kids.

What makes her the way she is happens to be the fact that the webmaster of this site let's her behave like this. (Of course, I would never make a liberal a staff member at any forum I'd be in charge of, regardless.)

    hey just because we are alcoholics does not mean we are degenerates. We are fully functioning alcoholics.
