I don't think you know what you're talking about. Somewhere between 60 and 70% of students at 4 year schools take loans. Add in the number of non-loan students who get help from family and those who get through with substantial scholarships and/or grants and all you have left are a few who work their way through. Having a job during the semester to pad your spending money account or to make up the shortfall between aid and school-related costs isn't the same thing as working your way through. It's hard to believe that these real world truths have escaped your notice given your experience with higher education.
