As tuition prices skyrocket and a scary number of students find themselves majoring in debt, it’s fair to question whether or not the cost of school will be worth it in the long run.
While we can’t answer that question for you, we can point you to many big names who skipped out on a formal education and, for the most part, did all right for themselves.
