Is going to college even worth it these days?

I know education is always a good thing, but is it worth having all this debt after you graduate? I have friends that all went to college some got associates degrees and some got bachelor's degrees. The one thing they all have in common they can't find work in this bad economy and have to find jobs just to keep up on college loan payments.

You will forever be at a disadvantage to those who did get the bachelors degree (and even more so against those who went on for graduate degrees). Education shows that you're well rounded, committed, and ambitious. Not going to college in this day in age would put you at a huge disadvantage.

Go to college for something in demand and you won't have a problem. Your friends probably have degrees in fields that are shrinking or over saturated.
