I know what I love to do but the only way to make money at it is from those old pervs at the Greyhound station.

Sounds like another bitter business school graduate. The line forms over there...>>

the fact is, some companies just require that you have a college degree. Whether or not its relevant to how you would perform, or if its important in your day to day activites, thats the way it is.
Lots of smart people out there, who manage to get a decent job, but, if you have any desire to advance in the corporate world, lack of a degree will most likely put a ceiling on how far you can go.
Conversely, having a degree doesn't guarantee anything if your a douchbag.

Oh please...i was a business major at an Engineering school. I got so sick of hearing about how the ENG's would be starting out with much larger salaries (which they did)...

You know what an ENG calls a business major 5years after graduating? Sir.

Engineers don't flatline because of their degree. Engineers flatline because they tend to be socially retarded.

Jokes from an engineering major, isn't that an oxymoron?

I will agree that a decent chunk of my fellow business majors were looking to party as hard as they could until their time was up and they started working at daddy's business. On the other hand, most of the folks I know who came out of business school and were actually motivated and smart are the ones buying dinner now ;)

I reget not going to college, but the military, and picking a technical skill that made me sign up for 6 years, really benefitted me. Got a job within a few months of getting out making more than I thought I would, and have made myself a pretty good career in computer systems without learning anything about computers till I was almost out of the military.

Daughter is going to school to become a dental hygenist - she looked up what made money and sounded interesting to her, and went for it. It's technical and in the health field, and those skills are going to be in demand for a while.
