First off, glad I went when I did, if I had to start from scratch today, fuck it, I'd get into a trade.
That being said, I feel like once I weigh out the pros & cons it was the right move.
Luckily my mother forced me to go, once I got in however, I knew it was worth it to finish it.
I wish I had more direction and a better idea of the impact a degree could have,
(at 18 all you want to do is smoke and fuck, feel me?) but having a degree is an asset.
My BA is from a reputable public university. It never landed me a job per se, but it has been a factor
in getting hired, and at my current job I was promoted at warp speed partially because of it.
I fortunately have no debt, between working through school, grants(grades) and help from my mother
I paid as I went and avoided loans. I would NEVER go on loans alone.
As I approach 30, and now that I am part of a large company, I have been seriously considering my masters.
Where and in what, I don't know. Then I think of the cost and have a legit hard time convincing myself it would
be worth it.
Damned if you do, damned if you don't type situation.
Overall answer: Yes, it was worth it.
