Good question. I'm a junior in high school now, and have had two internships (no official jobs yet). Both places really said that a degree didn't matter too much. It's nice to have, but they're not gonna hire or not hire just based on a college degree.
Either way, I'll definitely end up getting a degree, most likely in Business/CIS. Something like 85% or more of graduates of my school go to college, so it's practically required...plus I know I can use the experience. I'm currently looking at either OSU (Ohio
State Univ.) or Cincinnati. Still have around a year to decide though.
