Thankyou. I’m thinking of doing dual learning, it’s this thing where you basically can do some college courses while in high school and get credits ^
Really? Your roommates would steal
Yes, roommate and other people on the hall. I only had one roommate.

I went to Duke University in Durham, North Carolina. I was a double major in computer science and visual arts.
I lived off-campus which is a decision I came to somewhat regret. I was quite shy back then and afraid of sharing rooms with someone (I got over most of that shyness over the course of the period there). Yet I think I could have enjoyed my experience there more if I lived on-campus and interacted more with other students and without having to drive to and back each day.
Nice, I’m thinking of first going to a community one. Getting scholarships or anything to help since I don’t wanna be stuck with a bunch of student debt and etc
Ah true. It's working for me so far. Trouble is depending on the degree you're doing it might be hard to transfer your credits over to a university if you have to.
College can’t teach you everything but most people won’t take you seriously if you don’t at least have the degree. Colleges are also harder to get into and more expensive as compared to colleges back in your days and the colleges now a days. My mom came from a poor background and got help with scholarships because of good grades and good teacher recommendations ^ I’m sure I could try to do the same thing if I keep my grades up in high school.
if people won't take you seirously for not having a degree... fuck em. they're just sheep who do what they are told that's not intelligence.colleges are harder to get into now? the acceptance rate in the 1960s that was HIGHEST in america was around 9%... that's lower than harvard today.its easier than ever to get into school. and the degree is less and less valuable
What do you even mean by the degree is less valuable
the more people have the degree, the less demand there is to hire YOU... and there are more people with a college degree than ever before
People having college degrees are good, it means more educated people. I don’t plan on working for a company that doesn’t give a crap about me, I want to use my degree to start my own business
there are no inherent benefits to having an educated population. infact there are many downsides to a highly educated society with a phenomenon called elite overproduction watch this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jFreheCDxgIif you don't need a degree. you shouldn't get one... and starting a business does not require one. INFACT getting in that much debt will make it impossible
I assume 007kingifrit never went to college or doesn't know anything about it. Of course degrees are being watered down for economic reasons. But "super easy"? "No value"? Give me a break. Sounds either like an "elitist hater" or someone who's just jealous of the likely bigger salaries and more exciting job. And the thing is, with an increasingly technological society, the demand for people with degrees just increases. And I'm not just talking about computer science, or even physics. More jobs are being handed out for non-physical labor, and physical labor jobs are going down (not disappearing of course). The world is changing, get used to it.
@spearheadbt when we guess at the motivations of others we reveal only our own. those might be the reasons YOU would be against college if you were, but that just speaks to your poor characterthe value of degrees is going down... you literally admitted as much in your response. we need plumbers and laborers, not lawyers and professors
I think people in my high school at least vape or do weed more than alcohol
I’m not a millionaire, how would I get the money to do that in the first place. The baby boomers are practically hoarding all the wealth making it increasingly harder for the younger generations to get rich. and I don’t feel like being another menace to society and holding my money in real estate to cheat my way out of paying taxes like *jeff Bezos
the money you planned on using for college put towards real estate. look a college education won't guarentee you a job let alone a job in your field of study and that "education" will be outdated in a few years anyways if it isn't already especially since colleges hardly ever update their shitty cirriculum. a house or condo or townhouse will last you till you're in your grave at an old age. college is complete shit. if i had to do over again i wouldn't of even bothered with college i would of used that money to buy property or at the very least used that money to buy 30 year treasury bonds. let me give you an example my friend spent 5 figures on buying a used car. i put almost the exact same 5 figures over the same course of time in 30 year bonds. do you know who has a better investment now? he was paying for a car with no roi whereas i was paying for an investment with a decent (not the greatest) roi. same applies to real estate. (just avoid the stock market though)you can also buy 5 year CD's for an ok roi
listen college isn't going to guarentee you a retirement when you hit 67 or older it won't buy 5 year CD's 30 year treasury bonds real estate WILL guarentee you a retirement
