Actually, I disagree with the notion that people were on equal footing in college -- everybody being broke. Plenty of people go through college subsidized by Mommy and Daddy, and money never seems to be an object. And even then, the "haves vs. have-nots" are pretty obvious.....

I disagree with the first commentor (Kate). Without parent's assistance, most children are broke. As a parent, I see it as my responsibility to pay for a basic college education for my child. They shouldn't have to start their life in debt with student loans. If I can't plan well enough financially to send my child to college, shame on me.

I agree with Kate. College is a place where you can see the difference between the haves and have nots. But for the most part, I would say we were all pretty broke in the group of friends that gravitated towards me. Sure we had a few exceptions, but that's their business.
