Those law school numbers are crazy
Personally, I went the college track (hybrid engineering/architecture degree) but I am friends with at least 10 multi-multi millionaires here in SA that didn't...either skipped college completely or did a couple years and then went to work. All smart guys...they were just ready to move on. Personally I'm not sure the degree I got was really necessary for the small success I have had in life.
This forum is a prime example that people can have a college degree and still be stupid motherfuckers.
Study: For-profit college students end up with lower earnings
In a new working paper filed with the National Bureau of Economic research, a statistical analysis of for-profit college students show that earnings are significantly less than students who attend comparable nonprofit schools. The study found that “income in 2009 is approximately $5,500 lower for students starting at for-profit institutions than for students starting at not-for-profit/public institutions.”
Kevin Lang, the lead researcher on the study and a professor at Boston University, told Raw Story: “I’d certainly be very cautious about putting a lot of my eggs in the for-profit basket as a policy tool for improving labor market outcomes for disadvantaged workers. At this point the case has not been made.”
Other research has found that for-profit students make up about half of all student loan defaults, even though they make up about 12 percent of the general student population. The default rate among students at for-profit schools is 15 percent, more than double that of student who attend public universities and more than tripple that of students who attend private, nonprofit schools.
This study also confirms the findings of a previous NBER report that found for-profit students in 2004 were earning $1,800 to $2,000 less than their nonprofit peers.
The U.S. Department of Education issued regulations that would have restricted for-profit colleges’ access to federal student aid if they couldn’t meet student debt requirements, but a federal judge gutted one of the key aspects of the regulation in a ruling this weekend.
I agree on your last point but there's no reason for you to call out Darrin like that.

I like long walks, especially when they are taken by people who annoy me.

The Greatest Moment In The History Of The World:
Not all payoffs are monetary.
I have a Master's Degree and it is required for me to hold the position that I do. It does not and will never pay a ton of money but it is what I wanted to do, so for me it paid off.
You also mention that salaries in Nursing are "down" to 64000. What location and specialty are you referring to? How much experience are you considering? In SA, nursing salaries at the bachelors level are around 45-50k, starting.
