I can't say that I disagree with much of what he said. Me and my sister have this convo every so often. We both went to college and she kept going and got a masters in Public Health. If we could gonna back and do it over, she would have stopped at her bachelors and I wouldn't have gone to college at all. For me, that time would have been better spent living abroad while working and learning a language, etc, or moving to California right out of high school instead of in my 20s.
Now there are some professions where you NEED college. Doctor, engineer, etc. But outside of those career paths, I'd tell any young kid to seriously consider whether college is right for them and to actually weigh he pros and cons.
There are certain people who need college. The kids who thrive on that sort of learning environment, who need that sort of built in networking, etc. And there are certain things that you learn in college that are not related to academics at all but are valuable just in terms of being an adult. Some people didn't learn those skills at home and have to learn them in college. I'm just not one of those people. For the most part, I feel like college was a colossal waste of time.
