Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.

Learning things yourself makes life easier on the future, thus saving money in every possible way. Oh and you don't have to pay for college tuitions for the next 15 years of your life.

First of all as I reply to josef- College costs to you? Books are the only thing that cost where I live. Don't you have 40% tax to cover that? Countries with 20% and struggling still provide free education You can't learn every career yourself. Want to be a coder? Programmer? Self-learning is the way to go if you can live with your parents and you like it. Say you will be a mechanical engineer... you can not learn this from the internet or the books. The real work related experience (that in this field, WILL be the main thing to have in your CV to land a job)

Many places in the world, college costs money, but not where I live so yeah it may not apply to you.
2016-04-17 19:36
Good luck with that LOL

he is right actually if you look at Elon musk he learned rocket science and on his own and look how rich is he right now.
2016-04-16 17:43
Yes it's true in some cases, like 0,0001% of the cases, if you fancy those odds, go ahead, nobody is stopping you :)
2016-04-16 17:45
what is this a fucking jackpot? No I dont think so. If you put in enough dedication and effort into what you want, you can make it possible.
2016-04-16 18:07
Of course, go ahead, like I said, nobody is stopping you :)

Elon Musk has a degree in Physics and a degree in Economics from Wharton.
2016-04-16 17:48
yeah but he didnt study about electric cars, rocket science or solar energy in college.
2016-04-16 18:01
Sweden CMF 
No, but he himself is not constructing electric cars, rockets or solar panels. Do you really think that he's the main engineer on the innovations of Tesla and SpaceX? The argument that "oh but all of these multi-billionaires dropped out so I can drop out and become a multi-billionaire myself" is so fucking stupid.
2016-04-16 18:05
There are more cases of dropping out of schoolschool and becoming a bum, so that logic is retarded by default.
2016-04-16 18:09
Sweden CMF 
Yes, and I am relatively pessimistic in that the future Elon Musk is lurking on HLTV rather than doing something productive. @OP: Don't drop out.
2016-04-16 18:17
and there are much more cases of not dropping out of school and becoming regular person who just works for somebody who did drop out of school.
2016-04-17 14:54
Maybe in a 3rd world country, but not here.
2016-04-17 15:01
the only 3rd thing here is your brain.
2016-04-17 15:06
Sweden CMF 
Look at Fortune500 CEO's and see how many of them dropped out of university, and try that argument again.
2016-04-17 15:06
thoose guys are special cases you are pretty much better if you finish school and then follow your dream with dedication
2016-04-17 15:44
well you cant clearly become on of them if you dont believe so and dont have a plan.
2016-04-17 14:58
Self-education will make you a Bum.
2016-04-16 17:47
Or a programmer with experience... I stayed in college only to get scouted, but lots of my friends dropped out and are working as programmers/webdevelopers etc earning 5x average salary. But it IS a toilet cleaner country so we have huuuuge deficit of specialists in IT departments. Maybe because everyone good go abroad to get 150k$ a year for starters?
2016-04-17 15:42
IT is a little bit different, you have to be talented enough to get a job outside college, or you have to have lots of friends to get a spot. For the average job though its much better to go to a college.

Well if u wanna get a decent job I think you should consider attending college
2016-04-16 15:29
It depends, I went to college (didn't complete it (2 of 3 years)) the job I would get from the education would give me a paycheck of 2500 euro /month after tax. Now i have a job that gives me 2500-3500 euro /month after tax depending on extra working hours. I don't know how it works in Poland. In Sweden we have jobs that are well payed that doesn't require education.

[insert how freedom isnt free conspiracy] kappa, should i just loan money, travel the world then suicide or live in the forest with the samis?
2016-04-17 16:52
short answer yes. but it really depends. from what i make a living i could do it without degree but school helped me to make conections, learn faster and understand what is BS and what i have to change to stand out from crowd.
2016-04-16 15:37
It is worth it. Unless you major in something really stupid like Art History. Then it is just a waste of money

2016-04-16 15:37
If you want a regular employment all your life, yes.

2016-04-16 16:01

2016-04-16 16:25
Cleaning toilets without qualifications is for 3rd worlders. In Poland we have advanced studies on Bathroomology
2016-04-16 17:51
Well do you want a qualification?
2016-04-16 16:30
Only if your profession requires a diploma. E.g.: MD, Engineer. Other than that you can learn by yourself.
2016-04-16 16:31

2016-04-17 15:47
Depends on where you are I guess. Friend from Australia didn't have a college education and was making enough back there but he went here and couldn't land a job cause he didn't have a degree. He's doing great now though with his current job that doesn't require an education. One of the lucky ones.
2016-04-16 16:46
depends what country, if ur in nordic countries than yes, if you are on balkan then no, jsut be a criminal like politicians, police officers etc.

Depends on what you want do!!! If you want a job that needs a degree, go to college. If you don't then don't go. Don't go to college for the sake of going to college.
