Is College A Waste Of Time And Money?

Is College A Waste Of Time And Money?

By Michael Snyder | March 26th, 2014

Are you thinking of going to college? If so, please consider that decision very carefully. You probably have lots of people telling you that an "education" is the key to your future and that you will never be able to get a "good job" unless you go to college. And it is true that those that go to college do earn more on average than those that do not. However, there is also a downside. At most U.S. colleges, the quality of the education that you will receive is a joke, the goal of most colleges is to extract as much money from you and your parents as they possibly can, and there is a very good chance that there will not be a "good job" waiting for you once you graduate. And unless you have someone that is willing to pay your tuition bills, you will probably be facing a lifetime of crippling student loan debt payments once you get out into the real world. So is college a waste of time and money? In the end, it really pays to listen to both sides of the debate.

if your going to be some sort of

engineer then yes college pays off. I cant think of any other degree that you should get right now, especial since obomacare screwed all doctors.

Depends

It depends. Most students and their parents don't bother to do a supply and demand assessment or a return on investment assessment before figuring out which college or major to go into.I'm sure most Art, English, Humanities, Philosophy majors, etc are in misery, but that is because they never bothered to look at supply and demand.

I have an Economics and an Accounting degree and I loved them both. Both programs provided incredibly valuable information that translated into marketable skills. I know not all people can be accountants or economists but nonetheless there are other great supply and demand situations out there as well, you just have to bother doing the research.

Short answer: Yes

Long answer: Yes, college is a waste of time and money.

College is most certainly a waste......for many

Depends where you go, what you are trying to do etc, etc.

For me, total waste. That money would have been better spent on pizza.
