We’re surprised that there’s not more of this, given the fact that most colleges are run like greedy Fortune 500 companies lately.

The New York Post reported that a New York City woman who recently graduated from Monroe College can’t find a job and says her school isn’t helping her land gainful employment. Trina Thompson filed a lawsuit last week against Monroe in Bronx Supreme Court. The 27-year-old is seeking a return of the $70,000 she spent on tuition.

A spokesman for the college called the suit “completely without merit.”

    Yes, because it’s your schools fault if your can’t get a job. Because they directly control the job market.

    Just like it’s your doctor’s fault if you ever get sick again after leaving their office. Just like it’s your mechanic’s fault if your car ever has a problem again after you take it to get fixed once.

    Because the world is all about you, only you, and should walk up to your door and provide you with everything. And if you have to go four whole months without a job after getting out of college, that’s a travesty, because college is magic and after you go there you’re no longer accountable for your own life.

    Regardless of whether colleges are “greedy” or not, and regardless of the fact that I’m not a lawyer, I think “without merit” is putting it lightly.
