If your answer is yes , then what degree do you suggest people get ? As for me , I worked and went to school took me six years , and took over a dying father and maintained a 3.0 GPA .... I have over $ 30,000 in student loans he owes me . The total cost of my college education was a little over $ 60,000. He has a degree in business administration . which in my opinion really is BS ! It took me over a year to find a job even .... I applied for many jobs ... was on all job sites I could find on the Internet ... just to finally get a job that pays $ 30,000 per year, reaching a net salary of $ 24,000 and I'm still supposed to pay off student loans ... Fast forward, six years later, I am still working very hard and my employer ( too big to fail corporation) does not compensate me but expects me to meet unrealistic deadlines / goals ... then add in working in a toxic cut throat environment where you have to constantly look back ... Oh, and the kiss of death statement .. "Shut up and be happy to have a job " and make sure that corporate slave to continue taking the pill happy ! !

I am currently working toward a college degree .. Bachelor of Science and is fine . I would say that a college degree is certainly worthwhile, but it is worth only what your GPA . I have a 2.5 so I need to get my azz up and start working hard . Better than a high school diploma and is enough to get a decent job that could live outside .
