Stay in college as long as you can. Just make sure the college you go to has a good reputation, and isn't overpriced.
Complaining about student loan debt is a white person's problem. It's not a real problem. It's funny how some people who aren't college grads are using it as a reason to not go to college.
Now even low paying jobs need a degree! How are people trying to say a degree isn't needed?
Go to college, there's no discussion. /thread

The thing about trade is that, it would start you off high(55k), you can slightly improve(65-80k) but you will reach a cap(120k). Unlike Degrees, which starts you off in the middle(50k) you can keep climbing, and it will go for very high level..could reach 200k+ in 5-10yrs.
And the biggest off all, degree jobs are usually easy job... desk job or very minute physical job, unlike trades, which are very high demanding of a healthy body.
Another reason why i like degree is that, you learn things, i know i know, everyone is actually after the final paper of authentication, but i enjoyed my microbiology classes.

As a college student myself, I could've told you that we knew this fact years ago before now. If we're going for specialized fields nowadays even, it's masters or better or no job inside of the field of study. Some could say it's a major scam, some could say it's deemed worth of time, or some could be like me and just have no real opinion quite yet. All I know is I'm under a mountain of debt and it's going to be quite an adventure getting out.
It's kind of difficult to come into the undergraduate program years ago full of hope at a new future and then those hopes being batted down as bachelor's degrees are being basically slapped out of the way for anything higher up and being flung around for "common" jobs. It kind of feels like I should've just saved my money and around 3 years of my life.

I still say it's about finding someone who can really read and write.
A HS diploma doesn't mean you can do both.
