I wholeheartedly disagree. Show me where it is better economically to get educated first. I work, 2 years, I cut through my debt more than you do, which means I'm paying far less in interest thanks to a lower principle, and I make much much more with much higher chance of actually getting a job once I graduate.
I'm working right now with people who went for an mBA straight out of UG. They have way more debt than I do and are making the exact same as me because they failed to realize that no one really wants to pay someone who they don't know can work. ESPECIALY IN THIS ECONOMY.
