What about the students in that school who worked and saved and have no loans?  What about the students who served in the military to get the GI Bill and have no loans?  Are they just suckers?

No, not suckers at all, they just didn't happen to win the lottery. An education is a luxury that seems to be only afforded by the wealthy these days.
Attached is a story on students who are bent on pursuing a medical degree. Quite sure they would have to have some good financial backing in order to obtain that degree through a round about route.

But all situations are not the same.  I never even heard of this guy; but here is the interesting thing, he asked the students to play it forward, and already some real interesting stories are coming forward.

Yeah, I know.  I grew up dirt poor.  My point was that in that class there might be a young man who fought in Afghanistan in order to pay for his college.  Now everyone in his class who did nothing gets a big gift and he gets nothing?  If he wouldn't have served at all he would be right where he is now.

If I were the billionaire in question, I would pay off their student loans but I would pay the tuition of those who paid there own way too.  I would do it in the form of a check to those students.

My guess, he just thought of student debt, and not all the possible permutations.
