Ay guys! I've been thinking about this choice of going to college vs. trying to "fast track" my way into the knowledge based economy as a digital nomad/creator/software developer for a while now. I'd love to share some quick thoughts for anyone interested - and if anyone's got any opinions/feedback after, I'd be thrilled to hear em! (..and sorry if it gets a lil long.) I drafted a whole piece for my newsletter about 3 weeks ago explaining why I wouldn't be going to college - but then proceeded to change my mind like 3 more times..sooo now I'm actually giving it a shot for at least 2 weeks (until the tuition is actually due .. hahah) - I'm calling it a 2 week college experiment. Before going, I'm thinking of the pros of university as this: - structure for those who need it...and a decent bridge from HS to the real world - constantly surrounded by people your age (i.e a pretty good network, social benefits, etc.) - you fit in, and with a degree you have an increased level of credibility to most companies (as well as the rest of society as a so-called “educated person”) - 4 year party...🤷🏼♂️ And the cons: - outdated learning model that's based on extrinsic motivators and gradually suppresses independent thinking, creativity, etc. (which you can feel free to argue down below .. especially if you've already gone) - limited freedom to take full control of your learning, seek job opportunities, travel, etc. (aka the stuff I did in my gap year). In other words, you aren't just paying for classes but also THE OPPORTUNITY COST associated with the fact that you could've gained an industry relevant internship that makes minimum wage but still puts you up at a NET POSITIVE of $35+ an hour. - pretty expensive tuition (although I'm pretty lucky to have Canadian tuition) compared to nearly any online program...or the countless free internet gems w/ YouTube, twitter, etc. So put differently, I'll use a metaphor: - College is like the highway that's supposed to get you from one state to another... Basically everyone takes it and it's known as the "reliable route" but if you're not careful, you might get hit by a big ol traffic jam and question why you didn't go..say...off-roading. Highways also often have fat fee$.
This year I'm in the exact same spot as you are Jack. Whenever I think about this, Alex Hormozi's words keep coming up in my head: "It's socially acceptable to fail at entrepreneurship because you're still in school and you're using it as a crutch." (he said this in context of college, but I don't remember when or where unfortunately).
