Bill Gates went through a lot of college but never finished, he said screw it and started up Microsoft. I was thinking of going back to school and getting a business degree, but I don't think I will. I can probably gain more by studying the stuff on my own, that way I can learn things that apply directly to what I'm doing.

On that same note "going out and doing it" isn't necessarily the best teacher. If you look at statistics, the higher the education the higher the salary. High school graduates make more than drop outs, people with their associates degree make more than high school graduates, people with their bachelors make more than someone with an associates degree, and people with their masters make more than someone with their bachelors.

Of course there are exceptions to the rule, there are some high school drop outs who are billionaires. There are people with their masters degree who are homeless. But on average, the higher the education, the higher the pay.

I agree it's neither a pro or a con necessarily, you have to look at it on a case by case basis and decide what works best for you.
