 just like the real world, there are lots of bad people in college
its all about exploring but keeping an eye on people
dont smoke weed, that will ruin everything 
keep drinking light, cuz being an alcoholic ruins it too
its a good experience but like i said there are TONS of pieces of shit 
in college, so dont trust people, many can and will fuck you over
watch out for many college chicks, yea getting laid in college is easy
but if youre not careful these chicks can ruin your life before it even starts

totally depends on what college you go to. but a lot of decent-paying professional jobs require it. if your goal is business success it will help you get your foot in the door.

also it's fun and super easy to fuck hot girls if you actually have good social skills and are not just an approach machine with no calibration.

yeah, if you have a plan then college really isn't needed. just make sure you make learning a way of life and live life as consciously as possible, and you should be fine.

just always remember if you take the path most people take, you're going to get the results that most people get.

Dropping out of college was the best thing I ever did. I was in my fourth year too. There is a time when you ask yourself these life imposing questions and your gut screams with 100% certainty. Dropping out was something I will never regret, because it led me to escape the rat race before I had even entered.

If you have the creative/mental capacity, I'd advise everyone to skip college and start their own business.

The economy needs more job creators than job holders anyways.

And you're right, pick-up transcends to many areas of life.

 I'm a senior in high school and I'm really considering not going to college. I've been learning everything lately about programming + business. Combine that with the amazing shit you learn from rsdnation and you have something more valuable than some fucking college degree.

You're brainwashed. It's funny you mention nothing about the actual education, and things totally unrelated to the entire PURPOSE of college which is learning and education. Despite that purpose, most students learn absolutely nothing (at least those with a future in the corporate / business world) that would make them an asset to a company versus had they worked for 4+ years with them to begin with.

The only reason you would get a college degree is so some equally brainwashed employer who also dropped a shit ton of $$$ to get an "education" (but really a useless piece of paper) hires you. It's a vicious cycle.

The funny thing is, is that you indirectly proved my point, because you only mention auxiliary benefits of college helping land a job.

Like you said, most career paths require a college degree - not because of the education you received from said college, but because it's some completely arbitrary and irrelevant bench mark.

Going to college doesn't prove you have determination, it proves you got drunk off your ass every weekend and didn't have a single autonomous creative thought for 4 years.

Your statistic is talked about in this video:

College doesn't prepare you to be successful in the workplace necessarily. If you plan to go into a specialized field or something that involves the hard sciences, college is necessary (although you could still learn the same stuff independently). But for many jobs in the purely business world college is entirely irrelevant and the only benefit it will give you is just putting it on your resume.




Thats not true at all. Most career paths require a college degree of some sort. There's just some career options that's not going to be available to someone without a college degree but there are options. It just takes a bit more searching and a bit more grunt work to get anywhere.

College is just not about learning. Yea there's a bunch of shit you don't need really. But it does gives you the skills you need to get your foot in the door. It proves that you have the determination to finish what you complete. It opens up a network that you otherwise wouldn't have. Having a college degree is a valuable thing in life. I believe the average person with a college degree makes about A million dollars more in life than someone without one. But then again to each his own.

My personal philosophy: You need to step to every single girl like a fucking bomb. You need to have presence. You need to stand out, and not in a surface level way such as what you're wearing, but as who you are and the way in which you communicate. You need to be unforgettable. You need to create a sense of urgency, that you are now or never. You need to push and at the same time be completely willing to walk away. It is essential to disidentify with the ego, otherwise the inherent rejection associated with pickup will destroy you.

"You need to let them know what kind of man you are, so they know what kind of woman to be."

 Haha yeah no hate but this is kind of like saying "Learning how to paint made me quit my job as assistant curator at the museum." 

College is basically pound for pound the best training ground on the planet.

Fuck is wrong with you homey? Go back.

Don't dismiss someone as being brainwashed just because they hold different beliefs from you.

Education is education; learning is a whole other thing. It depends on YOURSELF. You have to want to go to school to learn. Screw degrees, screw papers. If you have the mindset that it's a waste of time, then everything about it will seem a waste of time. Not everyone gets drunk off their asses every weekend and not have a single autonomous creative thought for 4 years. Don't care about what others take from the education system to dictate what you take out of it. You go in, you want to learn because you see value in it, don't NOT go to college because everyone else is wasting their time in there.

Your life is yours.
