college is easy to fund? try not being able to get a private loan because your parents both have no credit score to be a cosigner, and paying for college out of pocket!!!!!!!!!
in graduate school, the banks don't need a cosigner (i guess they figure you're a good risk) so at least students have an opportunity to get that higher degree without having to chip in 60-80 hour work weeks as well.
i completely disagree with college being easier to finance than graduate school.
In state tuition for my state UG is $7500 per year full time per year. Fed loans do not require a credit check. If your parents are rich then they can afford to pay $7500. If they are not then you can get Fed direct loans to cover it.
The difficulty is not financing college, it is financing college that you want to go to. Government provides you with an affordable way to get a bachelor's degree, if you want an alternative, it is on you to find a way to fund it.
