It is true that the money he already borrowed he will have to pay back either way but he needs to consider if finishing will put him in a better position to pay those loans back. Thus the debt is relevant.
If he isn't retarded (he sounds like he might be) then the JD should give him greater earning potential over his lifetime.
Had he paid it all in cash I would agree that your sunk cost theory holds more weight.
oh my god. This post is aggressively unintelligent. This is like, what happens when stupid takes steroids and flies into a blind rage, hell bent on destroying rational thought and any opportunity for intellectual advancement it sees. I may actually dumber for having clicked 'view new posts' and read this post.
I think my brain might be bleeding.
Edit: I just reread it. This is actually the stupidest thing I have ever seen somebody attempt to articulate on TLS. This is it. This is the high (low?) watermark. This is as bad as it gets.
