(Newser) – If you can't afford to repay your student loans, Yale will sue you. But Spring Arbor University, a small private school in central Michigan, has a kinder, gentler approach. If a grad cannot find a job that pays well enough, the Christian university promises to help pay off that debt, so long as the grad is working at least 30 hours a week, reports the AP. The president of Spring Arbor says that in the face of a tough job market, the school is just looking to provide "students and their families with peace of mind." This fall's freshmen will be auto-enrolled in the school's loan repayment assistance program.

The absolutely most difficult college to get into in this nation does not cost anything to attend. You must apply three years in advance, have multiple references, pass a battery of tests and interviews and in the end, you still must wait your turn for admission on a waiting list. Simply getting accepted to the list can take you two years. But once you are on the list, you will attend, but you just have to wait it out. I'm talking about College of The Ozarks, a.k.a. Hard Work U. You have to agree to work in one of the many areas in order to get accepted to the program. The neat thing is that the work areas includ the local power dam, the airport, the fire department, landscaping, maintenance, etc. Most students report having a very good experience. The students run a very popular restuarant that is by reservation only. Even it has a waiting list and I've been visiting Branson for more than 20 year and have yet to be able to get in. Funny, I can travel to NYC and just about always get into any posh spot.

You can get into Yale, Harvard, Princeton, Dartmouth, etc as long as you have a wealthy family. That's a fact as I know an absolute retard and dunderhead who got into one of these schools simply because his dad was CFO of one of the bigest banks in the southwest. I'm talking he's a bonafide el stupido. He plans to spend 7 years working on a bachelors degree in engineering, he's so stupid.
