Aside from having a chance of getting a better paying job, What else are the purpose of finishing college education? Aren't those successful businessmen such as Bill Gates did not finished college? I also know businessmen from my country who become rich without going into college. Does finishing college has a great attribute in financial success? What do you think?

It isn't a key to success, but it is a key to overall development. People which have studied tend to have a more down to earth view onto the world and are less dependent of others.

you strike it right, phychodude. getting that college education and further studies is playing heavily on our overall development. it gets us prepared to face all the challenges in life faily and squarely. none of us studies in order to get rich but in order to become educated and properly informed in our field of study.

when we give ourselves a shot at a college education, it does not assure us that we will secure for ourselves the work that we are gunning for. soon after graduation, most of us will find some difficulties in finding the right job. but as we continuously work and take further studies, slowly everything that we had hoped to achieve becomes realized. we can never say that we do not have to have a good college education by saying that the likes of bill gates did not have it anyway. the likes of bill gates is very rare, in fact, there is only one bill gates. none of us can ever have the good luck that he has got.

Thanks for the wonderful reply. I assume too that college education provides us development in different areas more likely in ourselves. It helps us to develops our self-esteem.
