I feel school is a huge waste of time but society deems degrees as a necessity.

It's all about who you know and your connectiions.

Just get your foot in the door and be a good employee.

I've got anywhere from 10-20 people a day who work under me that I'm surprised can tie their shoes who might disagree.

my buddies that flunked out of college have the highest paying jobs out of all of us, granted i get to sit in a cube all day while they are doing manual labor.

But it really is mostly about connections.

Very few class in college are for applied knowledge, a lot of college is to show you are smart enough to handle the actual knowledge. I was a math major, and a economics major, and I work in finance which doesn't have much to do with either.

Its the fact that I was smart enough to take a hard major and pass, people who major in psychology, or or communication on average do not get well paying jobs.
