    Historically, college was worth it. Today, I would say about 20% of majors are maybe worth the price of education, depending on what you want to spend. Everyone seems to forget about the debt owed after they get out of college. I know 3 people who are graduating next month each owing over 100k. When you add the interest, is it really profitable to have a degree? You have to think outside the box.... Check this out if you have any doubts. http://www.youtube.com/watch?...

    FACT: People with college degrees or more had a 4.4% unemployment rate as of June 2010. It was 10.8 percent for those with only a high school education. High school drop outs have an unemployment rate of 15.7 percent unemployment rate.


    The highest levels of unemployment of those with college degrees are in the Arts and Liberal arts.

    YES! But pursue the education for knowledge, not with an eye towards increased income.

    Yes, and here is why:

    Lots of sex.
    You studying something you love.
    You will meet lots of people.
    Gives you the advantage in a job over someone else
    A requirement for high paying jobs.

    Also if you work at a basic job while studying then you should be able to pay almost off of your tuition back before you graduate.
