I must add, I have a friend who is likely a certifiable genius, has never attended a single class of college, dropped out of high school and gained his GED. This guy started and runs two seperate, profitable businesses (one in screen printing/air brushing, one in apparel design/sales) and he has designs for a third, much larger international business project that pretty much blows the doors off anything which I've ever heard. I asked him about college about a year ago - "Why would I pay someone for a piece of paper that tells me what I already knew? It's a stroke to my ego I can't afford. Maybe when I'm a millionaire and retired in the next decade, I'll get one for fun." And I certainly don't doubt his aspiration.
