    In this tough job environment and web designers/developers being a dime a dozen, any edge you can get over the competition is something you should seek.

    Speaking as one who did not get a college degree (though I do have several years of college classes in a variety of subjects which I do not regret in the least–except maybe Speech class), having that sheepskin (with ANY four-year degree on it) will open more doors than it closes.

    While there are some who regret every moment/penny spent on their education as evidenced here, I believe they are relatively few in number. I think you’re being very shortsighted by foregoing a good, well-rounded education. You may love web design, but how many people follow for life their chosen career path? Without that sheepskin, other careers will be even harder to get into. Look beyond the next 10 years.


    Guys, just forgive me for offtopic, but but I don’t know what topic to write and ask a question. I am writing a dissertation which is related to new educational technology in colleges. In addition to scientific data, it would be useful for me to gather the opinions in this field. I would be very grateful for any information and your thoughts.
