  1. Perhaps a master’s degree in fingerpainting wasn’t the best option? I majored in electrical engineering and was hired before I had finished.

  2. I earned my degree because I was passionate about the topic and found the learning process to be enjoyable. That’s my side of the story, and I’m sticking to it.

  3. I can’t imagine what it’s like to be a young person in America. Get a degree and work in government for hundreds of thousands of dollars, then pay a fortune for health insurance and live with the fact that 75 million people believe Trump is presidential stuff.

  4. In 1982, I earned a BA in Classical Greek with a minor in Sanskrit. Then I went to law school and went on to have a very good career as a lawyer. My undergraduate studies have proven to be extremely beneficial in my later life. College isn’t supposed to teach you how to do something; it’s supposed to teach you how to learn and think.

  5. Yes, I recall working at Subway with a Master’s Degree and receiving some helpful advice from others that “a bright young guy like me should go to school and get a degree.”

    People of good intentions, but I was on fire inside.

  6. My older brother “did whatever the hell he wanted and ruined his life,” so I had to get an English degree.
    His current job pays well, takes him around the world, and allows him to buy a house. When I look for work, I’m mocked because I’m unemployed. When I consider that my only choice is to return to retail, I experience debilitating anxiety attacks.

  7. My next-door neighbor is a plumber who works as a boiler master and does odd jobs in his spare time. He isn’t even 50 years old and has paid off his mortgage this year.

    Meanwhile, my wife and I both have college degrees and are struggling to make ends meet. Instead of going to college, I wish I had just chosen a profession.

    Avoid demanding that everybody should have a college diploma.

  8. You know, I just started college, and my biggest fear is that it will be a waste of time, and that I will end up trapped in some lame ass laborious job making chump change despite having excellent qualifications, because the whole point of going to college is to eventually get a better job and earn more money. I don’t want to be a scumbag. I’m hoping I’m making the right choice.

  9. A “college diploma” is the equivalent of a laptop or a drill. It’s a tool or a means to an end, not an end in itself. It’s up to you to figure out how to make the most of it.

  10. We complain about the quality of our education, the expense of our education, and the benefits of our education, but for some inexplicable reason, despite the numerous alternatives, we still want to pursue it…weird.

  11. Nowadays, you’re best off not going to college unless you have a clear plan on how you’ll use your college degree before enrolling.

  12. It’s funny, my last job was at a call center, where about half of the staff had college degrees, and they didn’t do anything to help them find better work.

  13. My friend’s younger brother tells me this all the time…. “Why am I working at Home Depot when I have a Master’s degree? This country is a joke!” Buddy, a Master’s degree in medieval literature cost you seven years and an unknown amount of money.

    Remember, no matter how enthusiastic you are about something, if no one would pay you to do it, it is a hobby, not a job.

  14. That’s why, before committing to a degree program, you should study job opportunities in your profession. Choose activities that you love, but keep in mind which ones are more likely to contribute to a job rather than just a piece of paper and a mountain of debt.

  15. What I don’t understand is why all bachelor’s degrees have the same credit hour requirements.

    I don’t want to belittle anybody, but does a degree in photography necessitate the same level of education as a degree in nuclear engineering?

  16. How many people choose something they think they can pass because they don’t know what they want to do or how good their job prospects are?

  17. I have degrees in gender studies, painting, music, political science, and underwater basket weaving, but I can’t seem to find a job that pays well.
