The potential benefits and rewards of earning a college degree offset the cost of college for most people. We live in a society where we are indoctrinated to the idea of getting a degree and that your chances of success are much better if you earn a degree. In truth, a good percentage of college graduates do not become significantly more successful than those who choose not to go to college and a degree generally does not guarantee any success at all. One can feel satisfaction from getting a degree and being educated, even if they’re not successful, and that can contribute to one feeling they made the right decision. What a degree does give is a better opportunity to become successful and find a well-paying job. It definitely increases the odds in the college graduates' favor. Whether it works out or not can rely on many factors, many of which are out of the realm of influence of graduates.
