Welp, guys, tomorrow I enroll at the college I will be attending and next month I actually start. I really cannot believe I am already going to college because it feels like just a few weeks ago my best friend and I were rolling through the school on our heelies. Gosh, those were the days... Anyways, yup I start college next month so I will probably be a bit less active while I am trying to adjust to my new surroundings. Luckily, my best friend and I decided to room together so my room mate will not be a problem...

Oh and I am planning to major in the Computer Science field. See my other best friend (yes I have 2 best friends; we are like a trio...shut up) and I plan on making a business together. He is going to major in Electrical Engineering so our majors are very complementary towards each other. Anyways, that's how my life is gonna be looking soon.

Infact I don't even plan on attending college because it's just a hell-hole where you spend 4 years going into massive amounts of debt to learn stuff you most likely will NOT apply to your jobat all

That's not true at all.
Back in the older times if you had a diploma you were guaranteed a place in wherever you wanted to work, but now, since everyone tries to get one they have gone down in value. Supply and demand you nigger.
Infact someone posted a video here a while ago about 1/2 people with college degrees are unemployed.
If you want to make a future for yourself, it's a bad start to go out into debt and waste four+ years of your life on some insignificant paper when you can go out and be getting job experience already.

oh yeah, that's exactly what my dad did.

he's 51 years, is constantly hurting himself doing the same job he did 20 years ago. that insignificant piece of paper can do a lot for you.

if you saw two job applications

both of them are almost completely identical, besides the fact that one graduated high school and another has a college degree. Who would you choose to hire?

No sense on dwelling on pointless scenarios because there are rarely ever two identical job applications
Better scenario:
Who would you hire, the guy who graduated college with a degree that has absolutely no experience with the job whatsoever, or a guy who graduated high school whose been working in that field for a while?
To be honest, I'm disappointed in you.
College is just one giant pyramid scheme, and you don't need a degree, especially now more than ever.
With tanking economy and the amount of degrees now available, they've significantly lost their value, and nonetheless diplomas never guaranteed you a spot in your job in the first place.

If you honestly feel the need to waste four years of your life learning stuff that won't apply to your job most likely and going into obscene amounts of debt, then go ahead and be my guest, but don't pretend college is absolutely necessary and it will definitely make your future better.

I think I will be fine since Comp Sci is in such a high demand. Also, whether or not you stay in debt after college or not is dependent on the choices you make in high school and in college. For example, in high school and college you can choose to not fill out that scholarship application, but then you will just have to take out loans if you want a better education. And you could also try working while you're in school which will cover quite a bit of the fees as well.

Well, here's some things to consider:

  • Not everyone is eligible for a scholarship, especially students like me.
  • Not all scholarships pay for all years of college (as some will only pay for a year or two)
As for the job thing, yes you're most likely going to have to get a job. Although, there a lot of factors to consider for that:

  • You're most likely going to be working minimum wage
  • Student debt for colleges on average range from 40k to 100k (and higher)
  • If you're going to live in a dorm, which most likely most of you are going to, you're going to have to provide for yourself, paying for groceries, and bills, and taxes. That doesn't leave you a lot leftover for your debt problem.

The military/navy/army/airforce is a nice place to leech on when you have nowhere to go. Problem is, internet access is limited due to security reasons. T_T

I'm planning to go to the Navy and become an intelligence specialist.
