College and Craft

Does a college education differ extensively from being self-educated when it comes to writing? I attended college briefly but never got the chance to finish. In your experience, dear readers, does it matter? What have you heard on the subject? For those of you who hold degrees and wrote both before and after your education: Is it easier for you to get published now and, if so, why?
