    Why harp on about college costs all the time. Any true fix of the problem would be socialism in todays' political climate. Besides, if you want a job that's going to pay and last, the trades are where it's at.

    Hutterite,

    Go ahead, espouse the trades, they are a great option. But realize that tradesmen work for people who possess that college diploma. I tell kids to go for a two-year degree or certificate minimum. Looking long-term, college grads earn MUCH MORE than their colleagues in the same field who lack the diploma. Life satisfaction is enhanced. Job mobility is increased.
