It wouldn't be a deal-breaker.
The problem with degrees is that they've been devalued at the same time as they've been inflated, if that makes sense. Any f***ing idiot can go to college these days (personally I think it's ridiculous that someone of below-average intelligence should go to college). At the same time, the costs have increased hugely, and even pretty sh*tty jobs these days demand college degrees. Employers can do that because the cost of creating a job has increased, which has led to more unemployment.
I don't know really. I think that I would have a better opinion of someone who didn't go to college than of someone who went to a sh*tty college.
Because of my own hard work, I actually managed to go to an excellent college, but I admit I would not have gone except that I pretty much had to in order to get a good job.
I don't think it's shallow to reject someone because of a lack of college 'education'. But it's not very well thought out. If money's the reason behind it, you would surely have to make exceptions. Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg are far richer than almost every college graduate could ever hope to be, despite the fact that they never graduated. Hollywood actors are far richer than almost any college graduate could ever hope to be, despite the fact that many of them never went to college. If knowledge/intelligence is the issue, why not simply get to know that person to find out how intelligent he or she is? A college degree is no guarantee. It's not even a very good indicator. I often annoy my fellow graduate-friends by knowing more about their majors than they do. Even if I'd never been to college, I would probably be in that position.
I think essentially people, especially women, are desperate for security. They're so desperate for security that they'll even settle for the illusion of security. "Oh, this guy has letters after his name? He must be prestigious and financially secure!" That's just not the way the world works. America is full of people with worthless degrees. I wouldn't be surprised if higher education is a bubble that eventually bursts.
