Do you have a college degree?

I was told I was a failure because I didn't finish college... I'm only 21.. And I have 3 Business Certification and am currently working on my fourth which I will be taking the state exam within a month or two... **I never said that I wouldn't finish college....

Do you have a degree and how do you feel about people without degrees?


Sorry about the category, I wasn't sure which to put it in :S!

  • Yes, I do.

    Without degrees: I hope that they have "something" some kind of skill, or certification, or license b/c it's hard out there without one.

  • Well, I have 3 and working on my 4th. And I have numerous college credits as well, but haven't found the correct direction for me. I currently own my own business and am pretty successful with it (for now, I hope it stays this way!!) Just curious..

  • Whoever told you that you are a failure at 21 because you don't have a college degree is rude at best. While it will be easier for you to get a good job if you finish college, you're hardly over the hill yet, and it sounds like you've been working on your education.

    I have two B.S. degrees,one in human rehab services and one in nonprofit organization management. And I'm not working in either field, so you never know where life will take you.

  • yes and im working on my masters

    i dont disregard anyone b/c of their educational status. now if they act a fool and are proud of it, yes i think less of them. but that has nothing to do with being a college graduate. there is more to life than a piece of paper that says you know stuff about things.

  • I have a BS, a national certification and I am working on my masters.... as far as people w/o degrees... not my place to judge. If you are happy with how your life is going that's all that matters!!

  • I was a single mother of 3. I had to work then save money then find the time to go to school. Something always came up. It took me 25 yrs to get my first degree but now I have five college degrees. You are certainly not a failure.

  • Yes I do. More than one. But I don't find the degree as important as just having training in something you enjoy....

  • I have 3 associate's degrees, 2 bachelor's, and a master's. I'm a school junkie. I guess I don't think much about what other people do unless they are complaining about the lifestyle they chose. If you're doing well, and you have a marketable skill, and are making responsible choices, I definitely don't think a degree is the be all, end all of life.
