Not for the sake of argument, but I am going to strongly disagree.
True: If your motivation to go to school is to earn more money, spend some time quantitatively analyzing the cost/benefit of your degree program. It may be more worth while pursuing a job training program if the numbers do not come out in your favor.
However, if you motivation to go to school is to become the best damn (insert non-traditional profession here), do not let the money stop you. You only get one life, don't waste it. Do some soul searching. Make sure that you are perusing a dream that means more, to you, than money.
