Computer programming jobs and a degree

I certainly understand a degree would be helpful. But how vital is it?

1) Are there skills and knowledge that a degree program would give me that would be especially difficult to get through disciplined self training?

2) How difficult is it to get companies to look at my resume without a degree?

3) What can be done to counter the weakness of not having a degree?

4) In the end if I go for completing my degree, what are some signs to look for when judging if a school has a program thats worth a damn? If I find one with a good program, would a non-accredited technical school be a viable option as far as future employment goes?
