With a huge rise in Tuition rates, high number of people with Degree's, Do you think College is a scam? I've recently been looking into a two year degree (Associates in Applied Science) For the Information & Telecommunications Technology. It HAS not been fun figuring out the long term prospect's of this degree and If I'm going into a decent field. We see TONS of high school graduates going off to college and racking up a cool $100k in loans, And are getting jobs that make $12 per hour... The question is, Is college really necessary? I really don't think College is a gateway to make a lot of money. I think personal drive and the ability to learn is what is the key factor. Discuss!
