True. But, if you make the conscious choice of "I'm going to study ____, the marketability of it be damned", then don't start whining and crying a few years later about being unable to pay off your loans because you can't get a well enough paying job. If you're intentionally going into something that pays peanuts, you're giving up the right to bitch about the debt you encumbered yourself with to get there.
