With tuition continuing to increase every year (up to $60,000), student loan interest rates increasing and an economy that's suffering from student loan debt, it makes sense that some students will resort to seemingly drastic measures to make as much money as they can before graduating so they can pay off their tuition.

"People] assume that we’re damaged and it’s like, no, we just want to make three times the amount of money we’re going to make when we graduate, before we graduate. That’s why I’m trying to save now," she said.
Maggie reportedly makes about $180,000 a year stripping, which is much more than what she'll probably make if she graduates and becomes a lawyer as planned.
