I hated college and regretted going for the time I did, but I picked the completely wrong college for me and had the luxury of going to a public school during the great recession. I think for college to be worth it you should probably know what you want out of it and to know enough about the college to really know if it is for you.
I simply went to the best school on my list and it was huge with many many students and giant lectures and sections. The lines to get help from the professor were hours long wait due to budget cuts. In fact most classes I took were not even taught by professors but by graduate students.
I would go to college again, but I would of found a small specialized school that better suited my introverted personality.
