We’re not trying to be defeatist. But with the rising costs of tuition, growing unemployment rate, even among high-skilled trades and general crumminess of spending four years without an income, a question prevails: Is college even worth it anymore?
From a financial standpoint, thankfully, the answer is still yes. A new report shows that while college students are at a financial disadvantage compared to non-college-degree-holders immediately after school, ultimately they catch up. In fact, according to this report’s estimate, it’s worth upwards of $800,000 over the course of your career.
Verdict: College is worth it. If you can handle wearing sandals in the shower for four years.
