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!

The reason tertiary education or college or university education doesn't guarantee success is, this is not to bash economies, most western nations are capitalist. You need to start and run a successful business. Think about how wealth is closely identified with success in those countries (western/capitalist economies) and you will see that the system they have is about generating money, wealth, from scarcity, from something being rare, a niche space unfilled, literally innovation that other people are willing to pay money for which creates wealth/money from thin air.

Going to University isn't pointless if you go for the right reasons. There's more to University than just obtaining a degree, and you have to make the most of your experience there for it to be worth it. The key is focusing on learning new things rather than getting good grades. Achieving good grades does not necessarily mean you have actually learned anything!

Colleges should be eliminated because they teach slavery, and never should have existed, because the wage is slavery, and the cause of world poverty. America causes world poverty by forcing us all into “work for a temp wage or starve” which sounds like slavery because it is! Capitalism is a new name for slavery, that’s all it is! There never should have been any unequal wealth. All people should own all things, which seems pretty obvious today, more than ever. America thinks “we need slavery or no one will work.” And if we suddenly had equal wealth worldwide and no one would work, I don’t care and neither should anyone else if no one works and all people die! Because mothers will work to feed their children, maybe many fathers will work too. Because most people are painfully honest. And it’s very easy to steal most things. If a starving 1 year old toddler took one grape without paying, capitalists would put him in jail for stealing!! Capitalists are insane, they’re Satan, the Devil. God hates capitalism with “perfect hatred”(Psalms 139:22)! God made the earth for the profit of all (Ecclesiastes 5:8) so GOD wants COMMUNISM (2Peter2:2) so all people own all things, so everything is free, so no one starves, so everyone can work part time, growing food with hydroponics and many ways that don’t even need farms, or land! God hates unequal wealth, it’s the people called capitalists who are in love with Satan, Satan is their father, the father of lies. Capitalists want WAR constantly because that evil way creates lots of JOBS making weapons that kill! Including too many vehicles that kill almost everyone eventually because there are too many cars and no one can drive! There should be equal wealth worldwide! Ezekiel 18:25,29,32; 33:17,20. Isaiah 58:7, Proverbs 11:1, Proverbs 16:11, James 3:14-16 things that cause envy, strife and confusion are devilish, which are all caused by unequal wealth obviously. Psalm 18:30 As for God his way is Perfect, meaning equal wealth, no more wage slavery! For now, all people should get a Guaranteed Residual Income!

You pass tests in order to receive your degree. What people dont realize is that earning the degree is the test. And your graduating GPA is the score. Employers know that students who are able to learn quickly and effectively and earn high GPA's in College will be able to learn quickly and effectively on the job. So it is your ability to learn that is being tested. The information you are learning is less important. In engineering school, if you look at the differences between students with 3.0s and those with 4.0s, the difference in dedication and intelligence is staggering.

David London True, I also read somewhere that 27% of college grads have a job related to their major. These employers are looking for people that have gone through the process of completing the degree which shows that they will be able to adapt and learn the information quickly. One of my favorite professors I’ve had in college said that he barely learned anything in his undergrad and it wasn’t until he pursued his masters where he’d actually had to present his findings/info with a practical experience. An undergrad education introduces you to these concepts and keywords within the prospective field.

This video should be taken down immediately; it is wildly inaccurate and deeply hypocritical and also deeply discouraging for people who could do very well at college. As has already been pointed out (below), ten of the twelve participants in this video are themselves college graduates and own and/or run businesses that, by and large, only employ graduates and who also rely very heavily on the skills and know-how of graduates to thrive and to survive. These business people and their businesses also rely very heavily on college based research and development, in order to stay in business. The up loader of this video could put their resources to much better use than this; shame on him/her for not trying to do that.

if you want to get rich by going to college and hoping that your degree will get you rich then collge is not for you. If you want to become a doctor, engineer, teacher anything that requires working for a company or place then its a requirement most of the times, but if your an eantrpenur then you know that a college degree and money isnt the answer, like robert said in rich dad poor dad to become finally rich and free from all stress and fears of debt you must invest, invest but where you invest is what makes the difference. You can invest in the rat race like everyone does with stocks paper assents mutual funds or hope that their 401k will be what they imagined or get out of the rat race by genreating more passive income more than expensises. this is what i belive at least , im 17 right now and want to become and euantrapenur and become rich not work like everyone else beacse evryone else is either poor or in middle class, if im going to learn from someone then it better be from experience and from someone who has left the "rat race" who can teach me.

While college isn't what is was 20-30 years ago, I think it's still almost a necessity to go these days. Unless you are middle aged with 10 plus years of experience in a field, most places aren't going to hire you without a degree. If you're between the ages of 18 - 25 years old and you don't already have a degree, a ton of experience, or a connection, nobody is going to hire you. With 70 percent of high school graduates going to college, if you don't get a degree you will be seen as uneducated, or immature.

Rich people always say money doesn't matter...because they already have it. People with college degrees have the privilege of thinking that they don't matter because they already have them. College is not for everyone, and it certainly isn't something you need for a lot of jobs - it's a specific type of opportunity - I know that in my 20's I felt shut out of a lot of job opportunities because I didn't go to college, which is why I went and got a degree in my 30's. The bottom line is that college, like any opportunity is what YOU make of it. Like others have said, if Zuckerburg wasn't IN college, he probably wouldn't have come up with facebook - if Elon Musk didn't have TWO college degrees, would he really be where he is? We have no idea. Artists and entertainers are in a different position - and of course there are exceptional people that will rise above things no matter what, but MOST of us at one point or another is going to be looking for a job from an established employer, and they are going to want to see some re-assurance that the person they are hiring can do project based work on a deadline and following a certain set of guidelines. If you made it through college...you can probably do that. Everything else is up to the individual, but to say that a degree is USELESS or WORTHLESS...that's like saying every opportunity is worthless or useless - Mark Cuban says it best here - "There is a law of diminishing returns at work" and that, in my experience is true. You have to decide where that line is for YOU and what YOU want out of your career. For me, I'm glad I got the degree in my 30's - NOT having a college degree has never been held against me in a job interview since then, and I know it has resulted in more opportunities for me. That said, the most successful people I personally know went to college...and dropped out. :-)

For me education still important. It's not only for technical skills but create soft skills. Education create human knowledge, know how to communicate, know how to read, know how to write and know how to think. It's totally wrong if people said high education is not important. How about doctor medical? How about engineer? How about manager? Come on guys. If the student not successful, it's not about the education, but the student itself not enough focus.

College Is supposed to be fun. Socialize, meet new friends, bang chicks (or bang guys if you are a chick), find your purpose. You don't need some schmok telling you you aren't good enough or you didn't pass because you couldn't pass a dumb scantron test. I didnt like school. I like living life. Schools for fools and dumbys

Although this message is specifically geared towards entrepreneurs, I think it can also apply to elite vs. state schools. Studies are showing that SAT/ACT scores are a greater indicator of future success than where you went to school, and the students who had comparable stats to elite students but were rejected from elite schools are reaching the same level of success. Of course networking is important, and there are fields in which an elite education is highly favored, but for most part you determine your success not where you went.

Do your research because this student loan thing is not funny. Luckily I beat the system by not doing what everyone else is doing.
