    Re: College Degrees

    As a financial investment, no, it doesn't always pay off.  Especially if you don't look forward enough to the after-market to see if there are actually jobs in that field.  Cartooning may be fun, but it's a hard business at which to make a living.

    Some fields are excellent at managing the talent pool to assure there is always a need for their services keeping salaries high.  Physical Therapy does a remarkable job at this.  Few students = high demand. 

    Some fields require education.  It's not an option.  You don't want your colonoscopy done by someone who took Colon Shop in high school. 

    And some people just value education for itself, rather than for what it can return to them financially.  For them the payoff is the education itself.

    Certainly puts being skilled at the lathe in a new light.

    Wow a social worker that makes $60,000? That is actually very impressive. I'd like to know where they are hiring.

    I think so many people want to go to college that so many crappy colleges have opened. A BA from Southern Western Middle Maine University Online is a waste of money. People should go into the field they have talent/interest in and therefore can excel. For some people that is academia, others is a skilled labor. Pick what works best for you, and not falling under societal's pressures because you'll end up wasting 4 years, and $100,000.

    You know whats a waste of money? Women who spend all that money going to school, only to just get married right after they graduate and only work two years at most. That is pretty much every wife here.

    then again, maybe it was money well spent because that is apparently also how they meet their husbands.

    Really? [and I am serious, not challenging] It's typical? I know it was in my mother's day, but that wasn't the pattern with the overwhelming majority of my peers.

    I got married in 1974 and have been working full-time since January 1976. Not without any breaks, but they haven't been frequent and the longest was ~4 months. 

    And while I did spend some money on my university education - before, during and after marrying - most of it was financed with scholarships, grants, and fellowship.

    And I met my husband when my chair broke at a Neil Young concert. But yes, he was a student.

    Welcome to my world that is the  1% ygren.
    last guy I worked for her met his wife at Yale, both students. Another guy here met his wife at Harvard, another at Northeastern, yet another at BC, and another at Dartmouth. The average time spent employed for the MRS, 1.5 years. once the babies came, work stopped.

    For the record, I am pushing JR to college, and a top tier college.
