Do you think that the importance of having a college degree is over-rated?

    I agree that tuition is through the roof and ridiculous. College is a big-time business supported by government and ripping off students and parents. Most jobs requiring college degrees overhype the need for a degree. Voted yours the best answer.

    Wow, are you kidding? I've lived in Hawaii and California and have seen many college grads on unemployment or working in underpaying jobs. Thanks for your reply anyway. Aloha, Stephanie

    I admire you for your diligence in pursuing 2 masters degrees & repaying your loans. I agree that, depending on the position, someone who gets hired without a degree can have 4 yrs of experience by the time the person in school gets their degree

    I agree that the college system is haywire. You bring up a good point about the internet. Since so much info is available online, much of what one learns in the classroom is open to everyone on the web. It's not about knowledge; it's about power.
