We have all heard stories about successful entrepreneurs (Gates, Jobs, Zuckerberg, Oprah) who dropped out of college to pursue their passion, or just never went in the first place. That’s all fine and dandy, but what about the successful college grads? Could they have been successful without ever going, or did they just bury themselves alive in debt for no reason? Colleges are great for networking since the students are mostly all there for the same purpose (keg stands and bong tokes), but are colleges teaching you how to make it in the real world or just conditioning you to be a good worker for someone else? I personally prefer to self-study; researching, reading, and taking courses on my own. I find it to be more effective because I can learn at my own pace, focusing on only the subjects I’m interested in. What about you? Did you go to college and, if so, was it worth it? If not, why?
