    PLEASE READ --> Hi everyone, this is a completely different video than normal. Videos will resume back to normal on Monday with an EPIC video by Simon Sinek. I want to explain that College is a perfect solution to many, however to others it may not be a good fit. For myself, it was perfect, for one of my good friends, it wasn't a good fit. If you are currently in college, do not rely on that the piece of paper that you receive at the end to get you far, it is your own commitment and perseverance that will get you far. College is one of the best places on earth to develop networking connections with fellow students and professors, as well as create experiences that are extremely valuable. I want to emphasise that you don't need to go to the best and most expensive school to get the best education or be successful. My advice is to BECOME INVOLVED, make friends with as many people as possible, help others, and be true to yourself. I REPEAT, this is not a video saying that College is useless, but rather we put too much emphasis on a piece of paper, thinking that a degree is going to catapult us to great success. Make the most out of your time, go out there and make connections with other people, and take risks!

    My math teacher in college once said "It's a pity that I have to give you grades for tests. I bet without the stress, you'd learn so much more in my class and enjoy it."

    When I was 17 my mom forced me to go to college for nursing. I told her I wanted to travel for a year before school and she said I could be a traveling nurse 4/5 years from now after I graduate! After a year of school I got so depressed that I tried to commit suicide. Because of that I quit college and Now flip houses and I have real world experience and am successful! Don’t allow people to tell you what to do, it could ruin your entire life like it almost did mine! God Bless y’all, think for yourself!

    For the people complaining...these great people are talking mostly about a business education and how it can be self taught. ^^ So if you want to go to school for law, medical, engineering, by all means!

    If you want to work for a company you NEED a degree. If you want to start your own company you don’t. Ironically, even the people who are entrepreneurs only hire people with degrees to work in their companies.

    Good luck getting hired as a professional engineer without a degree. That said, I think higher education still focuses too much on tests and grades.
