For some, college not worth the debt

While some college students make friends, and memories, for a lifetime,
others are lonely, depressed and uncertain, drifting from major to major until eventually they graduate with whatever degree is easiest, and a lot of debt. Or, sometimes, they don't graduate at all, but still have a lot of debt. For some, college is the beginning of problems with drugs, or drinking, or sex that will cloud their adulthood for years, or even a lifetime. Glenn Reynolds: Column

Your Say

For almost no one is college worth the debt. Its far too expensive and in most cases the education too poor.

"Everything I learned in college, is now on the internet for free!" Doh!

College is remedial high school.
A college diploma today is like a high school diploma 30 years ago.

Hey I just paid off my college loans after 21 years. I was able to work in by degree field for about 18 months before the loan debt and low, low pay forced me into my blue-colar job I've had for almost 20 years. I would have been so far ahead of the game had I just gone straight into my current job and had that extra pay in the bank.

Imagine what you could have gotten done with all that money for college just in your pocket to invest or build with.
