Wow! there is only one college student who voted in the poll, I wasn't expecting that. Well, this is not the official statistics after all but honestly what I really expected from the beginning is that college students will dominate. Hmm, this happened probably because they're not just hanging around here in the Meta more often that's why they were'nt able to participate. By the way, I'm also in college too Smiley.
In the United States it's run as a business.  Students are going into debt for a worthless piece of paper. 
Really? I don't think so (maybe just in your city/town). Schools are made intended for nourishing our minds, improving us as a person and not to cause us harm in any kind of manner like what you've said. But if there are students who still in debt then maybe it's not the fault of the institution any more but themselves — they really don't have a plan to study and only do a lot of immature things that's why they're repeating the shit over and over again.
College just means you obey authority and are not able to carve out a path on your own.
Okay, I respect your opinion. But for me, college is the last preparation for becoming a strong individual before we deal to the challenges of the outside world.

College is a complete waste of time and money.  In the United States it's run as a business.  Students are going into debt for a worthless piece of paper.  

The most intelligent people I know didn't attend college.  College just means you obey authority and are not able to carve out a path on your own.

In business you can often "carve out a path of your own". But times have changed and most well paid professions require a qualification.
Even when you are running a business some of the professional licenses require qualifications to obtain.

Apart from all the obvious choices like Computer Science, Commerce, Law, Sciences, Medicine etc.

There are some real interesting choices out there. I thought the Arts would offer the most unusual choices but the Sciences offers some unusual choices too:

Chambres de Métiers et de l’Artisanat offers a degree in Taxidermy.

Oaksterdam University offers a degree in cannabis cultivation.

Or you could do a degree in something like Puppetry, Gender studies, Surf Science, Turfgrass Science or Fermentation Science.

We are surrounded by legends on this forum. Phenomenal successes and catastrophic failures. Then there are the scams. This forum is a digital museum.

does education level matter in this forum?  I have seen many bachelors degree holders here yet not a single merit, posting quality does not mean they had a better education than you do. posting quality is most likely affected by interest, not by education attainment
