The question "Is college really worth it" can not be answered with a simple yes or no. It really depends on what you look to do/get out of your college degree. For example, if you are a student wondering whether or not college is worth it and you have no real sense of direction with regard to what you want to do in college then it may not be worth it. Personally, I knew I wanted to be an accounting major going into college, a major that I knew had a high likelihood of getting me a job that paid well post college. Other friends of man came in with a similar mentality and decided to pursue an engineering degree. We are all realizing the benefits of seeing out a major we knew would have value on the other end. However, if you are unsure of your career path or are considering a major that will yield shaky job prospects at best, that's when you need to start questioning whether or not it is worth it to you.
