Self-Disclosure: College dropout.
In many ways, I am very glad I dropped out of school when I did. I love the job/industry that I am employed in today.() Back then, I would have had to pay for all of my schooling --- and then be in a job that I probably wouldn't enjoy as much. I think folks who wait to attend college have an upper hand.
Once you've finally figured out what you would like to do with your life, it is much easier to choose a curriculum. I am trying to get myself mentally prepared to go back to school, but my priorities need to be adjusted before I make the change. Currently, I play waaay too much volleyball.(and that might not be a bad thing since MSU has a men's club team) And I'm waiting for my work load to settle down a bit too.
But getting back to your degree choice - if you are in an industry that you plan on never leaving, pick a major that closely represents your job field. It's up to you to decide which path to take. Just don't pick what you feel is the most marketable major. If you love what you are doing, choose a curricular path that supports it. If you plan on switching jobs to a different field, is it possible to hold off on your schooling until you settle down with the field that you love? There are quite a few companies out there that will pay for your tuition. How about getting your foot in the door at one of those companies and then let them pay? It sure beats school loans. I will be taking advantage of that luxury with my current company. They even pay tuition up front - I don't have to pay and then get reimbursed.
Finding an employer that will pay for tuition is a huge perk. If you're not tied down to your employer, look around and see who is hiring that offers paid tuition. It beats paying out of your own pocket.
