    The same two-thirds of student loan debt is owed by women. The link below talks about a "gender pay gap". Could that be because that degree in Women's Studies doesn't pay as much as a degree in Computer Science?

    Not surprisingly perhaps, the new survey found the top regret was incurring immense debts for that higher education, a debt whose payments run on for many years, causing postponed marriages and families. An estimated 70 percent of college graduates this year finished school with loans to repay averaging $33,000.
    The second largest graduate regret was their choice of college majors. Sen. Marco Rubio has noted in speeches that the occupational demand for Greek philosophers has not been good for about 2,000 years.
    Most satisfied were majors in math, science, tech and especially engineering. More than a third of computer science grads and four-in-ten engineering grads had no regrets about their area choice of studies.

    what I was going to say. degrees are for jobs. even then there ain't no guarantees or free lunches. you will still have to compete and bust ass. we don't really care what you regret .. you borrowed the damn money .. now pay it back with interest.
