Statisically, college graduates make a good deal more money than most people without a college degree. There are exceptions- people with a particular talent, for example, in music, or art or something. Then there are the trades, like plumbing and electrical work, HVAC, etc. They often require some training or an internship, but not a college degree, and those jobs pay very well. Also, some people who created computer apps or websites have become rich without a degree. You should also be thinking about what you want to do in life. Studies show that beyond a certain level of comfort and stability, more money does not make people happy if they're in a job they don't like. You spend most of your waking hours at work.
