Hey he has a story to tell. Being an economics major I know that this was not a smart idea. Living cheapest is not always the best. Im sure he ciould ahve scrounged to find somehwre to live. A small room or couch for extremely cheap. Then work 5 -10 hours a week somewhhere for better living. The time spent figuring out how to clean clothes and running to a gym ccould ahve been used working. This guy is an idiot if he did it for any other reason than an experiment. Really in a van. no empathy.

But you have to be an economics major to think it's not a smart idea.

OTOH, that guy's story is fucking awesome. I found the article entertaining and even if it isn't a smart idea it's still fucking interesting and I'm glad someone on earth did it.

A hint for him for next time might be to go somewhere with tuition waivers. He's got the right idea though.

Science majors get paid to go to grad school. That's one way to avoid loans.
