Yes....if he is in an industry that does not require a degree, namely IT or business. I just need him to be smart. We need to be able to converse. He also needs to be aware that there is a big beautiful world out there, and have some desire to see it.

Yes I dated a guy that I assumed had a degree,didn't even ask for awhile because he was making a good living. We saw a friend of his at a restaurant one day and he said they went to school together and it was high school,I was like oh pass the salt.

If you get a PhD in Sociology or Social Work you can't really expect to be successful.
If you are willing to study that many years for such a sh*tty degree, you might as well try Medical School.


Well people have various ideas of what it means to be successful. Surely a person who pursues a Ph.D. in Social Work isn't doing it for money. Maybe doing what they love, researching something that they feel has a great impact, impacting people's lives, etc.

Ultimately, people have to plan. A degree can't do work for anyone. Work ethic, intelligence, adaptability, and the strength of one's network all factor into how one fares in life. After all, who thought that there would be so many unemployed/underemployed/underpaid lawyers?

I remember when I was in college of fresh out of college, my friend introduced me to this guy that was just entering the construction industry under the tutledge of his father. I liked him but he was boring and he had a weird afro/flat top thingy going on. The boring part was really the most relevant b/c he never wanted to do anything but sit on the phone and I wasnt down for all of that at 18-21 or how ever old i was. 10 yrs later, he and I were both in my friend's bridal party and his wife was a bridesmaid too and she was an at home wife in a huge, gorgeous home. I dont remember the details but i think that his dad retired and he took over his dad's construction company right around the time that they started dating.
She knew enough to ignore the fact that he was boring as hell and to lock that downLOL His afro/flat top was gone and the man is now fyne as hell!!! lol

@Beatrice, sure someone doing Social Work are thinking of helping people but a man with that degree won't really be able to provide for his family, and he might have to settle working as a social worker because too many people choose that career since it is "easier" than Law or Medical school.


College isn't everything if you don't do more than just go to college. I see that in the faces of money people studying with me. They have crappy grades because they are in college to please their parents or get some money from financial aid or because they simply think college is enough to achieve something. It is like they think that graduating from any college will open a million doors. The counselors at my college are supposed to have a masters in Psychology. They are complete morons, you cannot be helped by them. They clearly hate their job and couldn't care less about the students' needs, but hey, they got a degree hanging somewhere in their house.

If a man is talented and also has ambition, but his choice of career is to be a singer or actor, I see little use in going to college. If a man has ambition and knows how to network, and he wants to be a businessman and already has a business, college may help a bit, but everything is literally on him, so might as well save the money.
