I know that in some cases programs are more expensive than others but in general I think the people with that much debt just aren't planning ahead nearly as much as they should.
There are a lot of people who barely work, even during the summer when school is off, all the while paying for their own school and residence through loans and just letting the loans pile up. Personally I work throughout the entire year to keep the cash flow coming and I will be graduating debt free with money to spare. Feels great haha.
Yeah I think most of the higher costing ones are the people who are studying to become doctors and go to med school and stuff

I'd probably feel the same way if I was on the other side, but since I'm not I'm going to enjoy it and milk it for all it's worth
For people who are like 1/64 aboriginal who've never been to their home reserve and are taking advantage of it i'd be pissed about that for sure yeah, but my family has been living on our reserve since all the way back to my great-great-great grandparents first settling in here.
