I agree with Triforce89. The BS is the new high school diploma. Additionally something else to think about is does the industry you want to go into require a degree? They may be needed for advanced positions but for the entry level? What is more important the degree or experience. I have a degree in Information Technology. The entry level jobs barely pay minimum wage because you don't need a degree to run cables. I'm sure it will pay off later in my career but I failed to look far enough ahead to see what the minimum qualifications were. I strongly feel I would have been better served getting the experience first and working on my degree as an after thought.
I do not think that the costs of attending college will decrease. The banks make too much money on student loans. The more popular a four year degree becomes the more expensive it will be.
