    Get one and find out, if you accidentally make a million before you finish your studies maybe ditch the studies to develop your empire.

    No, its not the be all and end all.

    But as a guy without one, I wish I did. They do make things a bit easier and they leave you with more options.

    If you are thinking of dropping out from uni/college to do IM. Don't be fucking stupid.

    I do just fine and I dropped out of school when I was 14 (freshman in highschool).

    If I could do it again I would've stayed in school (listen up kids), it is one more thing the next guy has that you don't. But if you work hard enough and are smart enough not having a degree, or a diploma and a degree, is just one more of the many obstacles out there to overcome and its doable. That being said if you want to be a doctor or a lawyer or something obviously there's specific school required for your license...

    The reason is i am now 25 years old and i have leaved studies at the age of 22 so there have been some huge gap between.
    I have so much burden of studies that i got depressed.so i have been hospitalised for few months.
    I was doing btech, But now again i have decided to do studies. I want to know what course\studies the companies are eager to pay maximum to the candidates.
    My only motive in life is to earn huge amount of money

    It's not a necessity, but it damn sure helps. In my current position, there is no way I would have been hired without a four-year degree.

    considering you age; i would rather suggest you to start some offline business and grow it and then try your luck in IM (If you want to)!

    hmm you don't really need it to make money and be successful etc. It's more of like a privilege thing.

    It depends, if you want to go to school for marketing then it's waste of time like I did but if you do something more productive like engineer or chemist or something decent then yeah it's worth it big time!

    No, I became successful when I made my first paycheck when I was 16.

    Degree is important for some jobs like doctor, teacher... but if you want to live your dream you can do it with or without degree.

    If I invested money that I spent for my school I would have probably 3X more money today.

    this is a bad motif because it destroys the whole human world. Every person who is greedy, and also performs this greed in an extension, which is not reasonable, will harm others.
    I wonder why so many bhw guys are so naive and blind. It is like they have no rational mind at all.

    I remember the saying that you will never be overeducated. If you can afford education, go! You would make friends and have a social life.

    Dropping out of high school was the best thing that could have happened for me, I found BHW since I was on the computer all damn day lol.

    I did finish high school online (which is a complete joke when you have google 24/7 lol)

    You should stay in college tho unless you are making enough money online that you can count on.

    Remember this will effect your future, if you drop out and IM doesnt work then you will have wasted years of your life you could have spent getting a degree.

    If you can't even stay in school, how are you going to stay focused on IM? I did a bachelors in Electrical Engineering and it was the best decision I've ever made. Clients shit themselves when I tell them I have an engineering degree.

    Stay in school kids.

    I was studying in University but doing my business part time. Then i started to focus too much on business and neglect my studies so much that i failed. I transferred to a part time course in another University but kept failing again . I felt like failure but you know what? My business kept booming and in the end i dropped out and doing my business full time and raking in 5 figures every month

    actually this is true with me. I have been trying reading all stuffs of making money methods here at bhw from last 2 years but i have not made much just 1k$ in last year.
    my other classmates have been passed out from college. but i got failed in exams. and after 1 year i didnt tried it again. Now i am feeling its importance. my other class mates have been passed interviews and joined it companies. There annual package have been over 24k$.

    If you want bigger success then a degree is needed, IM is more of something that is a hobby rather than a career.
