I don't think college is for everybody. Not everyone can afford, not everyone wants to go, and you don't need it to make a living. College is a choice not a necessity. If you want to go to college that's one thing but if you think you should go to college that's another thing. Don't go to college if you think you should. Only go if you want to. If you don't want to go that's fine. There's plenty of alternatives towards college. You can still go work in a factory for 40 hours a week. Better yet you can go live on welfare and sh*t. You see what I mean college isn't necessary.

Uh you do not need a college education to be successful. You can be successful without a college education. Look at Dave Thomas, the founder of Wendy's. He was a high school dropout and ended up being a multimillionaire. My paternal grandfather also a high school dropout ended up being a successful Chrysler dealer. And besides being successful is not about how you educate yourself. It's all about how lucky you get.

Thomis may be a multimillionaire but College could have made him a billionaire. And it deosnt take a genius to take meat put on a fryer and cook it then put artificial potatoes in a deep fryer

Reasons for voting decision: The first argument Pro made was in the final round and didn't respond to the majority of Con's analysis, not to mention it was entirely defensive. You need an actual case, or to address Con's case in full. Without doing that, you can't win.
