I would just think it's not a bad route, especially if all the classes are GE's for some major, but at least one of them moves you forward toward your major (such as a Bio major needing chemistry, history, etc).
Amurica, where universal healthcare and free education is considered communism.
Oh my education in the US was "free", because I worked my butt off for it. Starting in highschool I knew what I wanted to do. So I started applying for every type of scholarship I could get my hands on. By the end of highschool I probably applied for over 50+ scholarships. That paid for my first two years of college. During the summers of those first two years I interviewed with a variety of different companies I thought I might work at and was able to land internships with those companies. Hell one of those internships I was a ruffneck. From those internships plus some extra scholarship moneyI was able to pay for the last two years of college. Also from the internships I was hired back to the company for a full time job.

I'm doing a history degree in the UK atm, 2nd year. Currently volunteering and gaining experience and will be applying to med school in Scotland for my 2nd degree next year. I'm eligible for Scottish tuition fees so I'll only have so self fund around £2000 a year for my first 4 years.
I didn't really know what I wanted to do after school so I picked something I was good at. I don't regret it, it has so far allowed me to grow as a person and find out what I want out of life. I couldn't have applied to med school straight out of school due to not having the necessary chemistry qualifications so my current degree will serve as a stepping stone.
I commend you for what you did but its to easy now to get loans so more kids do it without thinking about it.
