This shouldn't surprise anyone, but in certain fields (e.g. engineering, computers) new college graduates can earn a lot more than less educated and more experienced colleagues. This is not true for other majors (e.g. social work). Therefore, how much of your education should be financed with loans depends on your major and how quickly you'll earn money to repay the loan. (What's the rule of thumb? Borrow no more than what your first year salary will be.)

Colin Edwin shared the cover of the new (May?) album from Metallic Taste of Blood, Doctoring the Dead. Can't wait for the audio samples.
