I've thought about law school but that's supposedly saturated now. I'm currently taking some courses at a community college in the mean time while I think, but is it really worth it that I continue? Give me your opinions GLP. [/quote] One of the few things of truth in this world is education. Noone or any situation can take your education/experience away from you. Is it a guarentee....NOPE. Is it possible that you will connect and find an interest that will make your work play...YEP. Do not listen to those who negate higher education. They are leftover, envious, hateful and egocentric. Follow what you like. Your dream or what you actually are attracted to. If it is games, porn, entertainment/media...well join the crowd. NO, I am talking about your inate talent. What is it? Develope it and you will have peace of mind....the only real reason for your existance now. [/quote] Well said! :tbclap: [/quote] I can tell that was written by someone who is at least 40. See, back then, Universities actually used to actually hold to the concept of "higher education", where only the brightest, most ambitious students went to college and were challenged intellectually. That is rewarding. Everyone else went to trade schools, became apprentices, or worked for their parents or local businesses. NOTHING wrong with that. Trade jobs are good jobs. Now Universities are just high school 2.0 because huge numbers of unworthy students get accepted into universities (due to this perceived notion that everyone HAS to go to college). And just like in the public education system over the last 30 years, instead of maintaining standards and not hesitating to fail people, the standards are lowered to the lowest common denominator. It really bugs me that the college degree I got is worth no more to a potential employer than the college degree of these people who had no business being in higher education to begin with. [/quote]
