Student Sells Sex – To Professor – To Pay for Tuition

A University of Michigan law student who needed extra money for tuition and couldn’t get a loan because of the credit crunch has been charged with soliciting sex for money on Craigslist.  From the Ann Arbor News:

The student told police she was advertising sex acts online via Craigslist to help pay tuition costs. For an in-state student, U-M Law School tuition is $41,500 a year; out-of-state students pay $44,500.

But the creepiest thing about this story is that the prostitution came to light after she accused one of her clients, Yaron Eliav – who just happens to be an associate professor in Michigan’s Department of Near Eastern Studies – with assault.  Since this blog is focused solely on student loan issues, I won’t go into the salacious details here, but if so inclined, you can read them for yourselves at the links above.

    That’s desperation (on so many levels). I wonder how many other students are considering untoward acts in order to pay for college…

    Doesn’t surprise me… 60% of students need loans just to pay for undergrad. I posted about that today on my blog:

    And if you decide to go to grad school… well, you’ll be submerged in nondischargeable debt (with no consumer protections) for as long as you live.

    I might post about this story in the future. The highest price of higher education is definitely hurting the U.S. economy and making many students desperate.
