Bachelor of Whatever

revenge of the nerds

By David Look

Thursday April 26, 2007

If you languished for years in the world of higher learning only to amass a shitload of debt for a graduation present, you might want to sign your name to this petition.

If you know someone affected by the mixed up bureaucracy of the Student Loan System in Canada and have heard the horror stories of misplaced correspondence, wrongful judgments on credit ratings, and students crippling themselves with outrageous payment demands, then you should sign this petition.

If however you’re out living some kind of suburban dream because you actually listened to your parents and got into a trade building and fixing stuff instead of wasting your time with a useless Bachelor of Arts degree, we’ll understand if you don’t give a fuck. It’s like Revenge of the Nerds in reverse.
