With the economy in the dumps, more and more high school students are encouraged to get an undergraduate degree - despite the costs - if they are to have any chance at earning a nice paycheck as an adult. Yet, not all college degrees are created equal, and certainly not all colleges.
There are those that say that an undergraduate degree is in fact worthless, not because one must earn a higher degree but because most jobs and careers simply don't require anything taught in most undergraduate or graduate schools.
With this debate in mind, what do you think? Was your college degree worth it? Specifically, I'd be interested to hear from graduates from local colleges and universities. Would you have been just, if not more, successful having transitioned from high school directly to the workforce?
