Discussion on: As a self-taught, have you considered getting a degree afterwards?

I have a Communications degree and I don't consider it related to my career of web dev/software dev. I've toyed with the idea of getting a grad degree in CS or something related but life gets in the way. My concern is that I will hit my ceiling without an advanced degree.

I'd love to know if having a college degree and/or degree actually related to your field relates to salary. I always thought a degree was worth 10-15k per year but that could based on our parents generation and not ours.
