You are pointing at a soft spot of global economy, not just American higher education. For good or evil, competition is open worldwide. The US has never been a closed system and stagnation, and change is constant. The capitalists have taken advantage of it.let me stop you right there! $60 K per year??? ANd why is that figure so high? Do you think our schools could charge $60 K per year if they had plenty of unfilled openings at the start of the school year? Wouldn't they have to lower their tuition price, by common sense cost cutting, to attract more American students to attend????
That is what is wrong with higher education here in the USA, open floodgates of (many times) ungrateful foreign students, AND unlimited student loans controlled by uncle Sam. Poor students come out of college with $400K debt, and then can not find a job except for Starbux!
Send those foreigners back home to whatever shit hole university they have back there. When I go into a hospital, I would like a US national who I can call "doctor" working on me.
As far as medicine, you'll be seeing more Asian doctors if you go to a classroom of a medical school. They seem to outwork other kids academically and otherwise. If by US nationals you mean those born or grown up here, then you are probably fine, although some doctors are schooled overseas but must be trained here and pass the US vigorous tests.
