it all depends which job you want, if it requires a college degree then you will need to get the required degree.

For most work, what you learn in college is pretty much useless. I have a psychology degree and am currently in the process of completing a teachers education degree, and I know for a fact that I cant do any job in psychology as I don't know to do anything related it's related work., but the college required me to double major in order to enter teachers education.

Largely what you will get is a sheet of paper that tells potential employers that you are in debt and can sit still and do boring work for 4 years without going insane.

I agree that colleges are over priced, but my theory is to go to a different country and go to college there. For example, the Dominican Republic, and their university, Universidad Autonoma de Santo Domingo, is free for Dominican citizens. I might go that route.

I live in New York City, and basically, the only options here are CUNY, SUNY, NYU/Columbia/John Jay. I might go the SUNY route, as CUNY schools suck.

yep, currently in a CUNY school and it is insanely corrupt.

they use the partial state control as a safe haven for illegal activity.

for example, the last semester, the college decided to do a retroactive price increase for the previous semester.

this violates a number of consumer laws, but it is nearly impossible to sue them for that and I ended up having to pay. Because the president of the college has qualified immunity, if someone in a position of control decided to do illegal activity in the name of the college, they are protected from any form of direct legal action. Your only option is to sue the state, and that requires you to head to some government office in Manhattan and fill out a form and pay $80.

The form is to request permission to sue the state as unlike local court/ small claims where only 1 party has to agree to the the terms to launch a legal proceeding, NY has a corrupt las that in matters dealing with the state, both parties must agree. then means if the bureaucrats decide "hey I don't feel like being sued right now" then they can just deny the form and you wont be able to take legal action against them.

The only way to make sure this doesn't happens, is to contact the media and get TV coverage on the issue. (I tried that also but none would cover it, even though it was clear that retroactive price increases are illegal after the final payment has been made

(this is illegal for obvious reasons since the law binds you to services rendered, imagine buying a hamburger for $1 then after you eat it, they retroactively increase the price to $100000 and and hold you liable for services rendered.)

See this is partly the reason I want to move away from New York City. New York knows we have no choice (usually) in schools that we go to, whether it's from not having funds to go to schools in Jersey or in Long Island or we just settle for schools that are inside the city for the convenience f never leaving the 5 boroughs.
