Earlier this year the foundation gave a group of young fellows $100k and two years of mentoring in exchange for quitting college.
And they advise that maybe college isn’t the best of all choices as it could land you deep in debt with no real marketable skills either. I agree.
I have a B.A. in Psychology which helped me little in terms of jobs. Then I went back to a junior college and got an A.A. in computer programming. That’s what set my career path. But this was when college was inexpensive. That B.A. might put me $50,000 in debt today and probably would have made it impossible for me to afford to go to that junior college. And I might still be doing crappy manual labor jobs.
