In the video, “Is college worth it?” by John Green, I quickly noticed that the statistics he used would be a definite example of logos. Using the example of the price of college, as well showing the math if college is even worth it, gave me as the viewer a statistical point of view of college in relation to price $. Green also gave examples of pros and cons of going to college, by showing wages in relation to college pricing.
