I like this. This is a real investment. What if instead of having to pay for college, you could get it all paid for in return for 5% of your future gross earnings. This would allow you to better concentrate on college, which would lead to a better job. There would be no more exhaustion the next day from late night shifts.
And 5% is not that much. With steadily increasing prices and an increasing cost of higher education. This is not a bad deal. I would of course need to take into account major, drive, and future plans, but its a great idea. Imagine if you got Lebron James to agree to this. Much more profitable than Apple.
