Numbers Don't Lie -- A Cost/Value Analysis of a Liberal Arts Degree

Numbers Don't Lie -- A Cost/Value Analysis of a Liberal Arts Degree

Commented Feb 26, 2013 at 18:31:30 in College

“For me, college was a far more expensive proposition than this article makes it seem - Many thanks to my hardworking parents for making it possible. When I was in college I thought I was not getting good value for money, now I'm not sure. As my memories age, they are becoming fonder, and I can now see how college experiences helped form my outlook, skill set, and relationships.

At this point in my life, I don't have enough perspective to say whether or not college was a good monetary investment, but I don't think I will ever be really be able to equate education to a financial investment. Statistical analysis of the value of education in terms of earnings is a bit mis-guided because earnings are based on so many factors like financial background and career choices ect, not just education; an education simply helps to open up more opportunities, and even the well educated can miss or pass up opportunities.
