    Hi, I live in Turkey and im a senior high school student and i will be 19 soon.
    I have several business ideas in my mind that i want to accomplish.

    I won't go into the details of the university entrance system all that matters is I have 2 main options in front of me.

    1) Go to a really good (maybe not Turkish Ivy League level good but one of the best outside of it) and one of the oldest (still not the best in the country but an accredited one) Economics departmant in the country at an overall meh university with alot of random people in it from all levels of every single criteria.

    2) go to one of the top 3 universities in the country (like the Ivy League of Turkey minus the upfront debt) which has the golden kids of the Turkey in it but i will get in with Translation Studies as a major. ofc this university has an extremely well established Economics and Business Club.

    Which one should I choose ?

    Im more on the side of the second one because;

    in the end im not planning on working as a white collar employee

    the connections i can make there seem too good to miss out on

    i think i can learn about economics through books and internet
