Man that sucks. This is where I appreciate having studied in a country where schools are tax financed, so I didn't have to pay a penny up front to study music. I will never understand why Americans are so scared of going over to this system.

How ridiculous around $55,000USD just to study 9 months!

I am sure people can get the same opportunities with much cheaper education minus the debt. USA student debt has interest accumulated every year it looks like at the moment it's 3.73%. 4 year course at Juilliard will cost you around  $220,000USD, with 3.73% interest that means you have around $160USD a week to pay off the interest....and that's forever. You need to be rich to live the American dream by the looks of it!

The American uni system is completely fucked. I have no idea how its population willingly lets that sh*t slide. State schools are way too expensive for out of resident students, and private schools cost several arms and legs. Ridiculous.

It seems like americans are bombarded with propaganda about how evil taxes are, when in reality their lives would bemuch better with more things being tax financed. I'd never want to move over there and suffer the stress they must be facing regarding their finances.

Oh, no, it's great.

Well, at least we get grey hairs earlier over here.

A fifty year old American is about equal to a septuagenarian in lowland continental mainland.
