College: Only as good as your major
Being in the workforce, I'd argue this. You'd be amazed how many employers don't care what your major is. They just want to know if you:
a) Went to college or not
b) Graduated or Not (and if you didn't, do you plan to or are you continuing your education).

When I was younger I thought it was going to be pretty important to go to college. But then, just before Christmas during my senior year of HS, they booted me out for skipping too much class.
Long story short, I worked my way up from Desktop Support Tech to Manager of Datacenter Infrastructure over the past 6 years working for one of the largest Forex brokers in the world.
I was able to achieve this with no HS diploma (no GED either) and never even a thought of going to college. So, for me at least, it would seem that college wasn't very necessary.
