Student tries to auction off his Purdue BA degree

Harvard Business Review:

$36,000 was where Nick Enlow started the bidding when he put his 2008 Purdue University bachelor’s degree in psychology up for auction on eBay, saying the diploma hadn’t helped him get a job that paid enough to cover his $470 monthly student-loan repayment. eBay barred the auction, however, citing the “sensitivity” of the item, according to the Lafayette (Indiana) Journal & Courier.

I wonder how much someone would have paid him!
