Is college worth the cost?

Is college worth the cost? Many recent graduates don’t think so.

I certainly don’t think so. I regret my decision to attend University of Baltimore. I’ve saddled my family with a huge debt that will take years to pay off, and I’ve seen exactly zero return on investment.

I will say that I don’t feel the sane about community college. I got a lot out of my time there for a reasonable price and it kick started me on my career path. I feel it was a good value and time well spent.

YMMV, but in my case the things that have benefitted me the most in my career are things that I took the initiative to learn myself.

I don’t know if he coined this himself or not, but here’s some inspiring words from my friend Ed Fickert, on his 45th birthday.

I haven’t been on my boards for a while and I’ve definitely seen a difference. That’s going to change this weekend.

Thanks, Ed. 🙂
