The Old Scoring Method for college admissions involved high SAT scores in math and English. The New Scoring Method only looks at a student's credit rating.
Hmm, pretty close to maxed the SAT, got accepted by four universities, but Uncle Sam and the draft won, so I enlisted. The advantage was, that little as the GI Bill paid (barely paid rent) I had to work summers and part time while in college, but as tuition back then was rational, and folks actually paid taxes to support education, I had no debt on graduation. The taxes I paid btw after graduation, and getting a job, more than paid back the state for that benefit.
We need to be there again. Tuition doesn’t need to be “free”, but state schools should be a lot lower. BTW: pricing books was always scary, but when I saw what my son was paying two years ago, even for used ones, plus his tuition, pretty scary. But he still graduated debt free, in part to spending 13 years serving the nation and getting blown up on occasion for his efforts. (Veterans, the OTHER 1% who really pay to support this nation, and our freedoms.)
