Here’s a headline to an article I read this week: “95% of college degrees are overrated and a waste of money.” Yikes. And the article wasn’t written by somebody who couldn’t afford college. In fact, the writer continued with…
“And I say this as a college grad with an overrated and waste-of-money degree. I graduated about a decade ago, and luckily with only minimal debt (about $10K). Looking back, I regret my decision to go. Because I now use absolutely nothing that I learned. And, to be honest, everything I learned in college I could have taught myself at the library for free. I went to college because it was my parents’ plan for me at the time. And I really didn’t question it.
If I had to do it all over again, I would not go. I would rather go learn a trade, go into healthcare support, or be content with my HS diploma.
I think college is worth it for a select few degrees/occupations: Engineering, Medicine, Law (although this market seems very oversaturated), Accounting, and some STEM. But everything else, including my degree, is a waste of time. And it’s not that the subject matter is a waste of time, per se. But it’s that paying thousands and thousands of dollars to learn it is. So, like I said, I could have learned what I learned in college for free at the library.”
I agree. Most college degrees ARE overrated.
And even when you get one that isn’t, you still have a degree that won’t help you make the most of your gifts and talents. And, if you’re like most people, you’d probably prefer to support yourself and your dreams with what makes you uniquely YOU.
