Alright.. this whole debate was pretty much pointless. Here are the facts:

- Going to college increases your chances of getting a good job
- There are people who manage to get very good jobs without going to college

Those are facts, so why the hell argue about it?

I'm a bit too young to decide what I want to do in life yet, but I'm thinking about majoring in Computer Science and small buisness/microeconomics. Or CS and Math, like my brother did (from UC berkeley). But without a doubt I am going to college, preferebly a very high ranking one (I'm a high-level student atm).

However, I respect those who decide not to... their choice, and if you get a good job, I like that too. I have nothing against you.

So good luck, either way you people decide to go.

I acknowledged both of those facts, bringing up actors for example..

Well you lack the face to face experience in the classroom.. but that's my own personal preference.

But like if you went to apply for a job, is there any downside to say the job recruiter, that you took it online? Do you have less a chance to get the job?

i think everyone had simmered down by the time you'd said that rake.

now i think the question is- is going to a well known school better than going to semi-known one..education wise?

If it is well known, a job recruiter will go 'Oh, Harvard, i know that, i'll take her, shes smart'
