my story is that rather than getting $50,000 in debt from college, i went right out into the work force.

i laughed at what they were teaching people in college. useless, outdated and sometimes actually inaccurate.

i made much more money and gained much more experience than any college douche bag did. ktnx.

you're forgetting one thing, tho'...college is a fucking blast. sure it cost a fortune, but i had the time of my life in school. all the booze, all the women...holy shit, what a great time.

if all you care about is money, college may or may not be much of a help to you, but if you live on experience, college is second to none in providing the goods.

You forgot something.

Often times, bosses won't go for experience. They'll go for a shiny diploma. Haven't you mentioned this in the past?

I did the same thing and I got back to college after. It depends of the person.

He WANTS to be an accountant? What, is he Jewish or something?

Hmm, I didnt go to college for 3 years or so after i finished high school. I went back. I found that working shitty jobs and fucking up my body was the wrong way to go. Plus, I like money. They teach you shit at college but if you have the hookups, you can get places with college.

Oh, go to college... who knows, you might ultimately want to do something that requires a degree... or you might just like college... no harm giving it a try. You can always work after instead of before, and your degree might help at that point. It's your call, of course. Good luck either way.
