"I feel pretty confident in saying that MOST people who decide to go to college are far more ambitious than those who don't."I would have to (respectfully) disagree with that. Many of the people I went to college with were there only because it was expected of them by their families.The ideal of 'higher education' has been incredibly diluted over the past century. In the first part of the 20th century, the only people who went to college were people who were seeking knowledge. So many people in college today are seeking - to borrow a political mantra -'4 more years' of easy living. In many ways, college is like a final four year vacation for most liberal arts students who will eventually graduate and have to learn a real skill set for a job they don't care about.I think the biggest and strongest argument that is missing from the Hustler's MBA is that people need to be seeking what it is they WANT to do. It amazes me how many people spend all of this money on college only to graduate and still have no clue what they want to do.For what it's worth though, professional degrees, including engineering, science, medicine, and to some extent law, are the exception to all of this and good cases where undergraduate and graduate experiences are good and necessary.
