It's amazing how much more value your work history can bring than a degree. As a high-school dropout (due to boredom from not being stimulated and learning anything new) it concerned me quite a bit that I wasn't getting the same opportunities or salary as others in my field. I now know that very few places actually care about that degree - and those that do are shooting themselves in the foot imho. As for salary - I had to tell quite a few of my friends that they were getting severely underpaid when I thought I would be the one in that position.
