A study by Payscale.com concluded that degrees from many university do not pay sufficient return to justify the expense of a college degree.

Engineering schools and Ivy League schools tended to do better, but many liberal arts degrees failed the test. You would be better off to invest in low interest Treasury Bonds.

One would hope those picking collegescolleges and majors will consider the potential return if they expect to earn a living from their college degree.

It has always been my contention since at least 1961 when I was sixteen, and entered college, that it is almost NEVER good economic sense to go to university or college unless the funds were first available to pay for that activity from savings, grants, or other scholarships.
