College or no college?

I've been going to college for the past two years, but I just feel like it's a waste of my time. Sometimes I look at rich people who haven't gone to school at all and I wonder what the big deal is with college. Half the time people with degrees can't even get a job, and the other half aren't making as much money as they would like to. What if you have a talent or something that could make you money, what does college have to do with anything? And then I think of subjects such as geometry for an English major? I don't even remember half the stuff I took in high school. Is college really that important in order to be successful in life?

My greatest years were in college. It was the book learning it was the experience. I did theatre, tv, taught and more. If I had it to do over, I would have never graduated.

it depens on how you define successful. For every one rich person who didn't go to college are hundeds of thousands of people who didn't make it. Is college for everyone? No. But statistically, college grads earn about $800,000 more over their life than their high school counterparts.
