Are Higher Education Degrees Worth It?

Many college graduates have tough times finding jobs in this economy.

Of late, I’ve been weighing the pros and cons of a variety of grad school degrees; I went so far as to complete all of the requirements to gain acceptance into one grad school before realizing that I might not want to be saddled with $30,000 in debt for a degree that wouldn’t land me a job anyway. 

 

The Internet is full of both offers for cyber-schools promising immediate acceptance for degrees in everything from rocket-science to basket-weaving. Fortunately, the Internet is also full of warnings about obtaining higher-education degrees that won’t get the graduates any farther ahead than they already were.
