Should I Drop Out Of School? by ItuExchange(m): 12:42pm On May 15, 2017
Should I just drop out of college right now since Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg are successful without it?

In the words of The Wall Street Journal,

“Not long ago, dropping out of school to start a company was considered risky. For this generation, it is a badge of honor, evidence of ambition and focus”

One of the BEST articles I've seen on this topic is that's of Live Beyond School.


Here you have some quick points to consider...

Gates and Zuck dropped out when it was FAR more dangerous to do so than it is today. Education had far more value at the time than it has today.

In the times we live in, not only is it easier to dropout of school and succeed, it's ENCOURAGED. Peter Thiel currently gives students $100,000 to drop out of school.

The value offering of traditional education has seriously eroded. An average graduate is at least $30,000 USD in debt, in the USA.

Universities are offering full courses online and for FREE. Not just any school, we're talking of the likes of MIT and other topnotch institutions.

With discipline and some intelligence, you can learn highly valuable skills like programming on your own from websites like codecademy.com, and get high paying jobs and opportunities from prestigious establishments and organizations. Or create your own business using the skills gained!

Those guys dropped out of Harvard. what do you have a passion for and are currently doing it? what's your focus and determination. Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg are 2 successful people out of millions of dropouts. Be wise.

A school dropout that doesn't know what to do with their life is the same as a graduate who doesn't know what to do with their life.
