I’m not sure why the stats for those with bachelors, masters and doctorates isn’t 100%...

Some people here aren’t old enough to go to college yet, and for others, college is too expensive.

Yeah, and that’s fine. But if that’s their case, why are they saying they have a degree? Lol

Sol ... college is not too expensive for those who prepare. Scholarships are plentiful. If you messed around in school, grants can cover almost the entire cost of many colleges.

Bachelors, masters, and doc. After completing the dissertation process, I now understand why about 50% of people who start a doctorate never finish. Oy.

I have 3 degrees, BA, MA, PHD. I am proud of my academic accomplishments and my 40 years of service as a college professor. But I am now thankfully retired, hung up my cap and gown, filed those diplomas away, and spend my time quilting and reading romance novels. Haha πŸ˜‚πŸ€ͺ😁🀣. Was it worth it, yes. My college degree opened doors for me that I never would have been able to do on my own. My advice: stay in school, study hard, do more than the minimum required to get by. Take pride in your work and constantly challenge yourself to improve. No one is looking for a mediocre employee, they want the best. Be the best you can be. Take advantage of scholarships, work study jobs, internships, and work experience opportunities. Volunteer and do community service. Learn to speak clearly and write well. Don’t waste this precious opportunity doing stupid shit. Party responsibly, and be the role model in your group of friends. ASK FOR HELP when you need it. We are here for you, just ask.

So 7% of people with Bachelor's Degrees, 5% of people with Master's Degrees, and 3% of people with Doctorates don't have college degrees.

Yeah, I have a BA in General Studies. I could have stuck around for all 8 semesters and gotten a BS in Psych, but I wanted to graduate a semester early and I correctly surmised that my current employer wouldn't care what my degree said so long as I got one.

Not at all, but personally I think you need the best ROI. If you have a huge inheritance and don’t need a career then you can just study art and philosophy all day. But if you don’t then you need to learn a skill to provide for your family and retirement. Otherwise you’re just wasting time and money.

That’s awesome. I have a lot of respect for you. I was a union rough framer and roofer for years. That’s when my body could do that. I saved up and payed for my pilots license and then got loans from my dad for a big aviation college. I didn’t need the college portion to get a job as an airline pilot and wasted a lot of time and money. But at least got through college with multiple science and business degrees in 3 years.

Thanks man. Roofing has got to be one of the toughest jobs. Probably makes getting multiple degrees seem like a breeze.
