A college degree allows you to pass a filter, where not having one means that your resume gets chucked in the round file before it even sees human eyeballs.

This is why I'm finishing up college. A CS degree has little to bear on what goes on in real life, but without it, I don't even get a letter of interest. To be honest, a BS degree is pretty much what a high school diploma was about 10 years ago. For a shot at serious stuff, it seems employers consider a MS a must for even entry level stuff.
