    I don't understand people who do History at University, and I've met a few of them, usually they do it because that's the only thing they can do. ^^

    I'm studying CS.

    After killing it in my exams to get into uni, I lasted 2 weeks there. It was far too slow-paced for me, and I already had tonnes of self-taught knowledge.

    A few years later I got a job by lying on my resume saying I had a degree. Within a month I was in charge of a room full of guys who actually had degrees and knew shit all - it became very apparent to me that university has nothing on what you can teach yoursel ok the Internet.

    Currently I'm enrolled in the school of "hard knocks" and I don't think I'll ever graduate.

    Started work in the real world as a Marketing Manager and found that obviously the internet is where the world is heading and where the real profits are made, so I taught myself everything from scratch. It's amazing what can be learned on the web. Especially on BHW.

    MIS and any related major is really where it's at in my opinion. Wish I would have known that when I was going to school.
