Dallas Lab Courier: What’s Your College Education Worth?

I was having lunch with a friend the other day, and in our ripe 27 years of age, we were reminiscing on our college years. We both were certain that we had made a mistake. As freshmen, you’re incredibly impressionable. I felt like I was suckered into my degree by an over-eager college counselor who had zero knowledge about who I was or what I wanted to know. How do I know she had no idea? Because I worked as a college advisor for five years, and I did exactly the same thing. So here is my friend with a double major in business and Spanish, no doubt with the intention of becoming some sort of foreign business advisor, working as a veterinary technician. Here I am with an undergraduate degree in psychology and a master’s degree in management writing blogs for Dallas Lab Courier.  Both employed, but in completely different fields, were our college degrees really worth it?
