Do you "buy" or "sell" the idea that at least a four year college degree is needed to live comfortably? If you sell the idea, then that means two year, tech, and things like job corps are still useful. If you buy the idea, then you believe to live comfortable you MUST have a 4 year degree to be happy money wise in this country, in these times.

Buy or Sell: Four Year Degree
It's not necessary unless that's the standard for the field you want to get into. Unfortunately prospective employers will look at the length of your program compared to others. :/
Both Steve Jobs and Bill Gates never finished college and I'd say they lived/lives fairly comfortably. Perhaps people like them are the exception but nonetheless it shows there's no golden rule to go by. If you are smart enough, and have a good idea that you can execute on, a college degree isn't necessary to get rich. Or even find employment that's fits your desired lifestyle money wise.

There's no golden rule, but there's the responsible/reasonable choice.
Also, it's a lot of who you know as well. It's sad that networking is valued more than skills/experience.
It's all bull$#@!. It's who you know. Not what you know. Just like those who said there's "free money" for college out there. BULLFUCKING $#@!.
But yeah, sell.
Yeah, sadly a lot of businesses hire people depending on the degree the person has. They even overlook experience in that field, just to see the degree, and that really pisses me off.////Taking sig/avatar requests, PM if interested\\\\
