    If you really think that you can learn everything you need to in order to succeed in life without going to school then by all means don't go to school. But if you think that there is one thing that the school can give you that you could use as you get older then I think you should give it a try. Although there are a lot of people who succeeded without proper educational background it's still wise to be equipped with a diploma when pursuing a career in the real world.

    School is place where you learn basics, and without basics No one can get success.

    make your whole life a school. School is like a park where dumbos get much more serious and make nothing out of life.

    My honest advice is to follow your dreams and do what is right for you, not your parents. I'm finishing my 7th year of post-secondary. I went to university at 17 because my parents wanted me to. I graduated after 5 years and completely regretted it. I went to college for 2 years after and found it more useful, but still a waste of time. If you don't want unnecessary debt and you believe you can learn what you need online (you can - for free) then don't go. On the other hand, a degree never looks bad either.

    Always try to do as you like. Don't depend on other words. This may not be possible for you.

    That's exactly what I'd expect an uneducated person to say.

    Depends how old you are. Why don't you wanna go? Also depends on the uni, I wouldn't bother going to a lower class university in the UK especially.

    People don't go to uni not to get a degree but to socialize and make life long connections. What are you high school friends that will work at mcdees help you with in the future? Do you think they even want to achieve?

    Anyway I better revise for my exams

    EDIT: Just realized it's an old thread, who even digs up this stuff
