In the grand scheme of LIFE, a degree is important, IMHO. For one thing, the
education that goes along with a 4 year degree proves quite valuable later on in
terms of simply learning how to learn. Secondly, if your degree was in something
you liked, you probably also learned how to push yourself past your perceived
intellectual limits in pursuit of just plain wanting to know about something.
Third, it may be a prejudice, but most companies have a threshold for hiring and
promotion and will usually pay more for simply having a 4-year degree in anything.
