No I'm not, but unfortunately it seems like getting a college degree is entry level for the vast majority of jobs these days. I don't think this is good, and don't get me started on the fact that so many colleges scam liberal arts majors by telling them they will have a job after graduating, when they know very well that job will be cashiering at Walmart. While you may know people that have not gone on to college and are happy with their jobs, I do not. I'm not discrediting your opinion or trying to be elitist, and I apologize if I came off like that. I'm just saying that it is a harsh reality in our world that you need to get a degree to have a decent chance at getting ahead in the job market. You also have to make those four years count by doing well in school, making connections and doing internships. The days of graduating with a 2.3 GPA and finding a decent job automatically is over. Is that right? Absolutely not. But it's a reality that we unfortunately have to deal with.
