    A degree is worth it, it will help someone have a higher chance of getting a job. In some jobs, it will also allow for someone to get promoted earlier on.

    Again, the Ivy League is an athletic conference, it has nothing to do with the quality of the education. William and Mary, Georgetown, MIT are top tier universities but they aren't part of the Ivy League athletic conference.

    Almost anyone can become a self-made millionaire if they don't have any sort of drug or alcohol problem and they have somewhat of an ambition.

    I don't get why americans don't flood european universities. Even without grant, they are considerably cheaper. You don't get the contacts, that's true.

    You can become anything with desire and faith , don't let OP set limitations in your mind with all this ivy stuff.

    success for me is getting what you want out of life.

    $1,000,000 is not a high amount anymore. Maxing out a 401K with a company that does contribution matching will get someone well over $1 million by the time they retire, not counting other savings/investing. Civilian(non-federal) job along with being in the National Guard/Reserves it's possible to contribute $38,000 a year combined before matching into the 401K/457B and the TSP.

    Anyone is free to invest their money into real-estate, franchises, stocks, etc. A person that is working for a municipal government that gets a good amount of overtime early on in their career before they get exempt has the ability to invest it if he or she wants to. If they decided that instead of going out and drinking and buying a luxury car to invest in a coffee or gym franchise they will gain wealth fast.

    Almost all EU countries have good universities, at least in technical fields.

    I have never seen such a thread on BHW.

    It's amazing that you end every sentence with ..!, despite apparently attending an ivy league school.

    I feel like the intention of this thread was not to "give advice to teenagers" but rather attempt to convince yourself that you made the right decision by going back to school and likely taking on ungodly amounts of debt. Let's hope you don't drop out again in a year or so, with even more debt and no degree.

    Your points of debate in your original post are asinine and not supported by anything other than your feelings.

    Why the fuck are you on BHW if you stick to studies and sports and don't do IM?

    Wait, this is probably a troll thread. Fuck.

    College is a scam. I never went. Hell, I barely graduated high school. I think what's more important is:

    1. Learning a marketable skill. Even if it's just marketing yourself.
    2. Networking.
    3. Working hard.

    That's it.

    I do a lot of IM. That's what I do. Alongside with studies.. bhw is love.. well this is lounge.. even if you take loan, you can easily pay it back within some years. And it's probably the best investment you can ever make..! And these ivies also provide great financial aid. What more you can ask for?

    Dropping out won't get you anywhere, yes it's a advise to teens who think it's a bold decision.. just never do it and stay in school.. change the school if you don't like your current. That was probably the best mistake I made, earned more than my teachers just from home lol. Learned more than I learnt in school..! Internet is the most powerful tool on earth..! But again Google was created by a Stanford graduate. Ivy graduates are masters and superior clans we just should accept it..!
