Word on the Street: College reimbursement

Paying off college tuition is a burden many graduates worry about, especially those who don't have a job waiting for them upon graduation.



One Brooklyn college is hoping to attract students by alleviating some of that worry.



Brooklyn Law School is now offering to reimburse students for 15 percent of their tuition if they don't have a job within nine months of graduating.



Students at Brooklyn Law reportedly pay around $43,000 a year on average, so they could end up getting back almost $26,000 if they're a four-year student who can't find a job.



News 12 hit the streets to ask residents what they think of the policy.
