More on stupid majors

Great blog post on the fact that a crappy major in a crappy job market = crappy low paying job! DUH!! The Dallas paper had a good article on the fact that you don't go deep in debt for college unless you know the job you will get can help you pay it off.

For example - if the average salary for a social science major is going to be $24,000 working as a barista at Starbucks, then you should plan on paying 10% of your salary towards college loans or $2,000 each year.
