ela-faye said: Do you have any advice to minimize student debt as much as possible for someone getting ready to apply for colleges?

Go to an in-state, state-funded university. Do well in school. Apply for scholarships (of which there are many.) Start looking at scholarships NOW. FAFSA is huge. Take AP classes in high school. TAKE AP CLASSES IN HIGH SCHOOL! If you don’t, you have to take them in college…where they are not free. Look into work study programs. Don’t bring your car to college…be frugal while you’re at school (because the money you spend on not-college stuff is not insignificant.)

None of these things are particularly fun. And if you have the option, I’d look into smaller schools, because I really liked mine, but they are MUCH MORE EXPENSIVE. But if you do well in school, there are full-ride scholarships in the world…if I didn’t mention this before…apply for lots of scholarships.

I’ve recently become fascinated by why tuition costs have risen so much in the last 30 years. I mean…it’s insane, and it doesn’t result in a better education. It turns out, for the most part, that it’s marketing. Universities spending money so that they look better than other universities so they get more and better students so that they can make more money (largely via student loans.)

Student loans mean well, and they’re vital. But the education industry has been economically incentivized by their easy access to raise prices and get more students paying more. Schools that don’t spend lots of money on luxury dorms and top notch sports programs don’t grow…kids don’t go to them because, effectively, it’s the same price for 18 year olds because the loans are available.

We should start a university that costs $3000 per year, but you have to sleep on a cot with six other people in the room. Like Hogwarts.

So we decided to do these awesome Harto carrot onesies for Hannah Hart at DFTBA and things were going so well until one little tiny problem and now they’re a month late shipping out, and people are understandably upset. I’m super bummed, as well.
Here’s the whole story. 
The manufacturer of the onesies didn’t put a “Made in China” label on them, and it’s illegal to sell products that don’t have the country of origin on them in the US. So first the onesies got held up at customs for WEEKS while we did our best to convince them that we would make it right. Two weeks ago they finally released them and last week they arrived.
However, now we have to permanently affix “Made in China” to all of the onesies so that we don’t go to jail (or whatever the penalty is for shipping onesies without “Made in China” on them.) Our first attempt to do this (with stickers) was not approved by customs (that lack of approval took a full week to achieve.)
So now the onesies are at Zoo City Apparel (the Missoula print shop that does all of our shirts) getting “Made in China” screen printed on the inside. Zoo City has been awesome enough to bump us up to #1 in the queue and they’re printing them tomorrow. We then need to show pictures of the onesies to customs so that we have permission from them to ship them. We have a direct line to the decider now, so hopefully it won’t take another week to get them to approve this for us.
The moment we have that approval they will be in the mail and you’ll get a shipping confirmation. 
We’re really sorry that we ran into so much trouble with these. We hate to let you down, and we hate to let Hannah down. This is the number one priority in the warehouse right now and the team has been completely dedicated to solving this problem since it arose. Thanks so much for everyone who’s showing their Harto pride by ordering these.

How Much of Me Is “Star Stuff?”

Carl Sagan famously observed that we are all made of “star stuff.” But what does that mean? And how much of you is really made of dead stars? SciShow Space explains!
