  • I have heard of families sending their children to study outside the US where college life is not like here.  One family I know mentioned the Philippines where Catholic values are still upheld in medical school. Maybe it is even cheaper.

  • I'm not sure that a foreign college degree will mean something in the US?

    I have had friends whose degrees from foreign countries mean nothing here and they can't get a job.

  • I know some Trads have a tremendous respect for degrees obtained on Vauatu.  

    A random example of a person whose degree is from Vanuatu.

    Many doctors from the local hospital are foreign.  
    Maybe they start out there and then finish off here.  
    I am not so sure how it works but I would definitely look into it especially if you wish to pursue medicine.  
    I know two families who's children went away for med school then came back for residency.
    No details though, I would dig deeper.

    I'm not sure I would like to send my kids out of the country

  • It's really not too terribly difficult to deal with a few years of college if you have the right mindset.  Young people who generally keep to themselves and are extremely focused will probably be better off than most.  Even state schools are not that bad, ours at least.

    -Commute or rent an apartment by yourself or with a studious and trusted friend or fellow student.  They do exist.  You want the type that stays in the library basement half the time.  Staying in the dorms is not a good idea, Catholic or not.

    -Go to campus for classes, review sessions, exams, work if applicable, and studying when necessary.  Find quiet areas to study when in between classes, etc.  Try math libraries, other libraries, and other study areas and atriums within the buildings.  Otherwise, study at home (wherever that happens to be).

    -I can't recommend many degrees where you'd be well-off as a Catholic earning, and most of them are useless anyway, if you actually plan to find work later within that field.  Try science (physics, biology, biochemistry, whatever), engineering, maths, agriculture, and other hard sciences.  Stay away from literature and other soft majors.

    -Be polite with fellow students but stay away from those that rub you the wrong way.  It really is not hard to avoid bad company.  It's not hard to avoid being "too friendly" with the opposite sex.  In fact, you will, if you follow the advice above, you won't even have to avoid it because you won't be around it hardly at all.  (You still might be around people of the opposite sex but it's not going to kill you.)

    -Stay occupied.  Work.  Work in a lab or anywhere else morally neutral.  Which happens to be most jobs, in all likelihood.  Have hobbies and occupy yourself with them.  Take up knitting, metalsmithing, birdwatching, polo, or whatever else floats your boat.  Study and commit yourself to doing well.

    -Assist at Mass as often as possible and pray the Rosary every day.

    This worked for me, and I have no doubt that it will work for others.  Maybe not everyone, but surely someone.

  • If you're a foreign doctor you don't get to transfer over to the U.S. and become a doctor just like that. They make you go through many years of training -- again.

    Same for dentists, take years.

    Foreign degrees, well, taking them back over here, your mileage will definitely vary.

    Any college - any where.

    A Trad should be strong enough to learn a secular trade without being perturbed at the going's on at the university.

  • Just don't take any classes on Darwinism.

  •  :dancing-banana:
    Adult Catholics who need college should choose the school that best fits their needs, professional, academic, financial, geographic.  For adults, college is a means to an end.  Children should not go to college as they will likely lose their Faith.   When children of adult age are 'sent away to college,' there is rarely a specific goal, rather, it is for the 'experience' in and of itself in the mistaken belief that it will produce a Catholic adult with a career and a life.  
     St. Francis Xavier threw a Crucifix into the sea, at once calming the waves.  Upon reaching the shore, the Crucifix was returned to him by a crab with a curious cross pattern on its shell.

  • We can't encourage people to go to novus ordo colleges because that provides funding for the teaching of falsehoods.  

    I may sound like I'm being flippant, but if a man wants to be a lawyer or a doctor or an engineer then choose the best public college or university at the cheapest price.  Colleges are really just largely glorified tech schools so go there to learn a specific subject and don't turn to the no-think indifferentist walking next to you for some kind of spiritual guidance.

    Going to a novus ordo school is feeding the novus ordo and that is something that needs to be starved.

  • I attend a public university where I receive a $1000 stipend each semester while earning my degree - plus I've grown deeper in my faith since I started attending the university.

    I'd say its a pretty good deal.
