I am absolutely convinced that extending a student loan for college, to an individual who is not even close to being academically prepared for college, is not just stupid and a waste of taxpayer money, but also immoral. What is even worse is those students who take the loans only for the cost of living portion of the loan the borrower receives in cash.

Regulations put forth by the current administartion has greatly diminished these practices, but they still continue. Students should have to receive minimum SAT scores to qualify for student loans.
