You Went Where?
Consider the name on the school as well as the name of your degree. Many new for-profit schools are popping up to compete with the old guard of education. Future employers will value the reputation of your school as much if not more than the things you studied.
What is the difference between a Bachelor of Science from Harvard and the same degree from Somewhere-out-there State? The Harvard degree opens doors, gets you connected to powerful people and makes you part of an alumni group that will look after one another.
A jaded opinion of higher education states that what you learn in school does not matter at all. Students don't go to college to learn. They go to get away from their parents and have fun. If they get good grades, it's because they studied just enough and at the right times to pass a test. Term papers and final exams are not real life.
That opinion would point out Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg, who all dropped out of college to become filthy rich technology pioneers. It would point you to Steven Spielberg and Quentin Tarantino, who never went to film school. They learned by watching and doing.
If you spend $50,000 a year on a big-name education, do it because you will be part of that club forever. Employers don't care what you learned at Princeton. They assume that if you are smart enough to get in and graduate, you're smart enough to learn the job they hired you to do.
