A Bit of College Can Be Worse Than None at All

What if you had $40k of college debt and still had no degree to show for it?  This is the real-life example that this WSJ article touches on and how some college is actually worse than no college at all.

  • Nearly one-third of students who started college in 2012 didn’t return to a U.S. school the following year, according to the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center. And a new report out from a group of higher-education organizations found that roughly two-thirds of students who return to school after interrupted courses of study still don’t graduate.
The payoff is in finishing the degree no matter if it is a 2 year degree or a certification.  In most circumstances a degree of some sort is your entry ticket into the ball game even in cases where a degree is not really required.
