In Friday College Town Hall, we post a question about college, and you leave an answer in the comment field.

Today’s question:

Total outstanding student debt has passed $1 trillion, more than the nation’s credit card debt.

Do you think students are fully aware of the scale of debt they’ll accrue paying for college before they’re already standing knee deep in it?

Today’s question:

This August in the U.S., there was no increase in net jobs, and the unemployment rate stayed constant at 9.1%.

Does the current economy have any effect on your decision to go or not go to college? How do you think the recession affects high school grads’ choices?
