The only thing I regret is my choice in major, and not being able to stick with it.
I attended an HBCU and would not take the experience back for anything. I did not finish at that particular school, but the relationships made, marching in the band and the social development was priceless.
I have a Music Buisness degree and I actually worked in music business for 10+ years until I was let go. Being in that corporate setting, I got a chance to see that the real
money makers were in IT/IS/programming.
College experience aside, if I had to do it all over again, I would take up a trade. I've always been good at working with my hands, building things, etc. I would've probably been an electrician. I would've made a ton more money - EARLIER IN LIFE - doing something challenging.
As for having a Bachelors degree, I merely see it as a gateway to an upper-level tier of jobs (salary wise). Most times, the major doesn't even matter, they only care that you have a degree. Something that I found out once I got back on the job hunt.
I won't push my daughters to "go to college" like my parents did me. If they don't want to go to college immediately, I would recommend that they get a trade. I currently work for a trade school and some of the programs are in such high demand that they usually start work as soon as they finish school.
My wife is pursuing a Bachelors in Nursing and wants to be a traveling nurse. I will probably find a job that telecommutes and travel with her once the kids are out of the house.
