Should young people just pull themselves up by their own bootstraps? Work a summer job to pay tuition? Nevermind that Northwestern was $3500/year in 1970, the same rules apply, right?

Yes the same rules apply. If you can't afford to go to Northwestern, then don't go there. There are plenty of schools that cost less than $10000 for full time. I don't understand why you are bringing age into this, but yes pull themselves up with their bootstraps and get a job to pay for your tutition.

People complaining about the cost of tuition are ignorant and silly.
