Finally, an honest college television commercial


The very funny people at put together a YouTube video that presents college in a more accurate way -- very different from the world you'll find in guidebooks.

At the end of the parody though, there's a very important line that you should remember when you consider schools: "If we were a good university, we wouldn't have a commercial."

This is 100% true: If you see a television ad for a college, there is a 99.9999% chance that it's a for-profit college offering programs of dubious value that can be found much more affordably at a local community college. Anyway, watch the video.
