Cost of College

by Jadrian

After receiving a donation request from his undergraduate university, Mulaney questions the purpose of college. After spending $120,000 to major in English, he realizes that he may not have actually gotten out of it what he thought he would (human capital), but instead received a lot of consumptive benefits. He doesn't mention the signalling aspect of a college degree, but it's implied through his analysis on the lack of training he received.
