Is college or even grad/law school worth it even more?

[quote:Anonymous Coward 27758786:MV8yMDUxNDU3XzM0NDc1NTE4XzgxRTQxNDBG] If I had it to do over again, I wouldn't have gone to college or graduate school. I would have found a job and just worked my way up. At least when I went to school, I was able to finance it myself through scholarships and many part time jobs. But now, it's almost impossible to get a degree without putting yourself in massive debt. Do you want to start your career in debt, with no guarantee that it will be really beneficial to you, or when you will be able to pay it back? Especially since you don't know what you want to pursue, at this time (and most of us at your age didn't either, hence we changed jobs a lot). Getting a degree is no longer a guarantee of a good job or of promotions. Sometimes, that only comes from who you know and what family you came from. I got stuck in that kind of work situation a couple times! In other words, there was never a chance of moving up because those jobs were already slated for others, before you even hired in. I would recommend apprenticeship programs. Learning a trade that will always be in demand, but something you enjoy. Something you can do free lance, anywhere in the country, any time. America is getting very short on these talented craftsmen; what we have instead is overeducated, out-of-work people, with too much competition in their fields. And they are broke before they start, due to student loans. Can't tell you how many times when I switched careers, I was told "You're over qualified". Had to start at the bottom each time to show them I was adaptable, trainable, and damned good at what I did. But that's rather expensive to your livelihood. The fact that you are thinking about it now (not pursuing the higher ed) could mean your intuition is trying to tell you something. Give it some more thought, and best of luck to you. [/quote]
I'm 18 and don't have much of an idea of what I want to do. I've thought about law school but that's supposedly saturated now. I'm currently taking some courses at a community college in the mean time while I think, but is it really worth it that I continue? Give me your opinions GLP.
