it depends on what you are going into....if its going to get you hire pay and a better chance at further promotion then go for it...but if it isn't going to help you in your current job then whats the point?

I wouldn't say college is "useless", but it certainly can be a waste of money if you don't do it right. I think continuing education is very important, whether it be through life experiences or classes. Unfortunately, the corporate world does put great value on a degree...even if you're a ding-dong or your degree has nothing to do with a job you're applying for. It's a wacky world!

The other replies above made good points...depends on your personal situation and goals.

I agree with Warren.

You certainly won't be hired as a chemist, scientist, doctor, teacher, etc... without a degree.

Basically, some careers require it, some careers it helps to have one - but not required, others don't require one.

I suppose it depends on what you want to do.... ? What do you want to do? :D

I agree with both Warren & Patrick96LT4.

Comes down to what you want to do. I'm also in the IT field and I'll take someone with a few years under the belt over a few years in school.

I say go for it! I decided to pursue my Master's Degree (MBA) right after I graduated with my Bachelors (knowing I wouldn't go back to school once I worked full time). Nothing will substitute experience but the Master's Program helped me implemented and enhance our family business plan. A degree will not guarantee success but just a "tool" to help you on the way. It was a great learning experience and would do it all over again.
