Got your attention, did I? Yes, university is a waste of time if you want to be drilled to take tests and fit a mold... also the student loans aren't fun to pay back; and, most students don't deserve to be in college- I knew more intelligent people who did not go to college or university but got jobs and made something of themselves. What road did I take? University. What road do I regret? You betcha! Please do not bash me for saying university is a waste of time. I got wonderful grades and had a decent amount of friends when I was on campus; it just does not prepare you for the real world! Does anyone else feel the same way? Given that I cannot even get a volunteer job because I have a M/A in this economy, I deserve to feel a little upset. I see mentally handicapped people with jobs and I am told I am overqualified? Geez. I suppose that is why our country is in the toilet. From someone who has been down the higher education road, spend your time dedicating yourself to a field or company you can grow with and learn the trade. If you enjoy cooking, fixing cars, or chilling with people learn the vocation and become the best chef, mechanic, or counselor the world has ever seen. This goes for anything else that cannot be outsourced! Vocational training is the way to go. Don't spend your time with a four-year university or more. Get a real job. I wish someone would have told me this 10 years a go!
