PLEASE READ --> Hi everyone, this is a completely different video than normal. Videos will resume back to normal on Monday with an EPIC video by Simon Sinek. I want to explain that College is a perfect solution to many, however to others it may not be a good fit. For myself, it was perfect, for one of my good friends, it wasn't a good fit. If you are currently in college, do not rely on that the piece of paper that you receive at the end to get you far, it is your own commitment and perseverance that will get you far. College is one of the best places on earth to develop networking connections with fellow students and professors, as well as create experiences that are extremely valuable. I want to emphasise that you don't need to go to the best and most expensive school to get the best education or be successful. My advice is to BECOME INVOLVED, make friends with as many people as possible, help others, and be true to yourself. I REPEAT, this is not a video saying that College is useless, but rather we put too much emphasis on a piece of paper, thinking that a degree is going to catapult us to great success. Make the most out of your time, go out there and make connections with other people, and take risks!
Hi, by any chance do you have the names of the successful mens of the video? I am doing a research, in order to mention some of the phrases shown I need the names of the owners of that phrases. Thanks and amazing video

Sometimes these elite level guys just aren’t familiar with what the average guy is capable of. It’s like LeBron James saying “I didn’t go to college and look at me.” But I do agree college is not a great choice for most people. If my kids don’t have 3.5+ gpas in HS I’m not paying for them to go to college. However I will pay for them to start a small business if they spend 4 years learning a trade or building competence in a viable skill.
I think college is not completely worthless. I believe that in our society, it’s only valuable because of fields like engineering, surgeons, doctors etc. These guys are talking more about entrepreneurship and fields that don’t require a college degree. Fields that don’t need degrees calls for experience or work. You have to work for what you want. The thing is, we put so much value on the degree and pressure others to get it before we even ask what they want. Before telling a child to go to college, ask the child what they want.
This is only relevant to business, most of these people are entrepreneurs. I didn't see any physicians, nurses, lawyers, architects, graphic designers, engineers etc. Tbh college is just a source in information, college keeps you at your toes and tests you to see if you learned. You can do this on your own but good luck making yourself your own degrees.
What matters is the experience and who you know not the degree employers only care about how experienced you are in work. The real problem is everyone that applies to jobs has the same qualifications you have but who gets the job ?
The answer is the person who is most experienced and what they can bring to the company a qualifications certificates mean nothing without experience and self confidence.
That’s why apprenticeships are in such high demand and hard to get
My university degree gave me the flexible to try things I never could in school, and now have a much wider view on the world. I know more accurately about what I want to do in life. If i didn't go to school, I would have gone straight to work. Maybe I would have been able to try even more things than in university and get an even more open mind, but maybe not. So many different possibilities, that there isn't a clear answer.
Oh yeah because you can totally be a doctor or a scientist without a degree. This is geared for the people who think that everyone should be a billionaire and can start a business, well guess what, not everyone can.
I understand what you're saying, but that changes when you're talking about engineering, sciences, architect, medical doctors and these areas of work! This might work in business, but you'd better know what you're doing when it's this technical world because this won't fly! You can't just say, oh let's just wing it on this algorithm, or design this building any old way! This is only good if you're going into business! Not the rest of the world! You don't "need" college for a lot of things in this world, but I guarantee you will need it if you go into these fields!🤠
This is complete bullshit. We are hearing this from the elite of society who use the even more elite as an example to convince kids that school is worthless. There is no way you can work as an aerospace engineer without college. You cannot become a doctor without school and some people would love those jobs. The only time school does not matter is when you WANT to do something that doesn't pay much or you have intelligence in the upper percentile of society.
To some point some people are successful without a degree but its not for everyone. Would you want your nurse or doctor to not have a degree ? My ex-boyfriend got his business degree and it didn't do anything for him, people are going for degee's for things that are not high in demand either where they live or just in in the general world, so they feel like college was a complete waist.
I think we commonly mistake, and engrave the idea that going to college is secure us a job. This is not true college tries to prepare us the most for a career. But anything that is learned in college can easily be learned elsewhere
Sir the surgeon doing Hemispherectomy for you epileptic son is here. A quick disclaimer though, he is not formally qualified, no college or university degree and he didn't go to medical school but the guy is damm good.
Some of these guys are extra ordinary, the black sheep. Not everyone is a black a sheep, at the same time the schooling system should be upgraded more often, like the benchmark should be changed since society is growing.
Saddens me to enter my sons class to hear Pluto is still a planet in his books and he will only start learning how to use a computer at school when his 11 years old. Yet we rolling out newer and more powerful computers every other 3rd month, heck I bet when his my age the quantum computer will be palm sized. Yet him going to school gives him structure so that he doesn't reinvent the wheels when he enters the world .
*They Don't practice what they preach*
That's the Hypocrisy we have to live with.
If you don't have college degree, you have to throw the prospects of "Jobs" out of the window.
The options are Jobs at McDonald's OR start-up of your own..
These people who are Claiming that college education is *"useless"* should at least start a training program for undergraduates (Something like unpaid internship OR probation based selection) for kids without college degrees.
The experience of college helped me grow and mature as a person... aside from my actual education. Not to mention the networking you will do with classmates, and all of the intelligent cute girls there are to meet at college. I married one of them. College Rocks!
Yeah unless . You are going to be a doctor, lawyer, scientists , engineer etc. the key words are education , training and mentor ship. If you can get these things without going to college getting in debt.....there’s your answer
Education has a value and is good to have it. What is not good is the outrageous tuition fees that colleges are charging to students. When did they become so greedy? Just early in the 1980's higher education was almost free in California. Colleges are the modern sophists that Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle fought against. The Sophists were a group of philosophers in ancient Greece that for a fee they promise to give you an education. Plato and Aristotle fought them because both of them thought that education should be free.
As much as I dislike college degree education quality especially the lecturer’s quality, I never deny every education has value. The higher the education level, the higher the value. You cannot create a micro chip with a electrician level education, no offense. But of course you can learn it yourself, if you are willing to dive deep into that level.
If that's the case the whole of Eastern Europe and most people in Western Europe are hybrid. They are white-Asian. Attila the Hun and Genghis Khan conquered Europe and left their blood over there. Ask any Russian whether or not they have Mongolian blood and their answer will be Yes, and they are very proud of it.
Bloody hell USELESS is a strong word. A college degree in science or humanities is a really interesting way to learn about the magic of the world. I'm from sweden and do not pay a dime for a degree, I recognize that in america this clip might get more people worked up. Of course you don't need a college degree to get by or have an interesting life, you don't need a degree to learn about the world. But having the chance to be taught by a faculty that have put hundreds of years of dedication into learning about the world is an honor. I've got a background as a journalist and now I'm going into a science degree to get more deeply educated, have studied literature and anthropology before and must say I'm so grateful to have had class mates that are interested in the same topics as I am etc.
I would never feel comfortable applying for a job as a natural scientist without an actual degree, so now I'm getting one and I'm pretty sure the years of learning I have ahead of me won't be useless.
However, If I had to pay 500k for a degree I'd probs try to gain the knowledge from elsewhere and tear the system down.
(Summary: Success story from going to college) So pointless to hear this from the perspective of an outlier. Someone with a one in a million mind has no business telling average folks not to go to uni. The only reason I delayed going to school was so that I could travel around for a few years. Starting university at the time that most young people are exiting university, I thought I already knew it all from my worldly experiences. I was completely wrong. You can have all the knowledge in the world, however, it's not the grades you make it's the hands you shake. I mean, look at Zuckerberg; if he never met the Winklevoss twins he might not of came up with the idea for Facebook. I would have never met the executives or industry professionals that I have, if it weren't for going to school. I graduate 8 months from now and I've already signed with a company that wants to pay me 80k and give me 4 weeks pto every year. Still think my college degree is worthless? I think not! Message to young people considering school: You don't have to go to uni right after high school! Take a gap year, learn to be more independent, and explore the world on your own.
Oh, and in addition to my comment below having a college degree means you get to do LAZY work. I worked 17 year in manufacturing. Worked my ASS of when the buzzer went off till it went off 2 hours later for my 10 minute break then back at it.
Now I work in an office in the IT field. This is not even work! Dress nice, WAY nicer people and better pay. I honestly don't think peple with degrees are "more intelligent" but they do not have self destructive habits like in a factory. Factory work is kind of depressing which leads to drug use and what not. Anyways...YES...get a degee in something that HAS jobs! Unless you think you ae the next Bill Gates then good luck..I'm too lazy to work that hard.
yes OF COURSE it is worth it. I went to a community college at 38 years old. My associates degree cost like 15k which grants and the like paid for most of. In Information Technology jobs are plentiful.
Most kids want the "college experience" and go to a university coming out owing 30-100k.
If you have no college degree find a community college. its cheap and employers DO NOT CARE where you went ot college
A lot of these guys have a degree and not everyone gets to be a successful in the music industry, pro sports etc. Even if you work your ass off and are smart that does not always mean you will become like one of these guys either. There is definitely some luck
Well maybe if Elon Musk went to college he would've developed the critical-thinking skills to know NOT to publicly accuse another person of pedophilia and then say quote "it must be true because he hasn't sued me". Yah, just what I want in an employee: someone incapable of comprehending the consequences of their own absurd actions.
College degrees are not useless, unless you never want a real, professional job. Now some majors are entirely useless like women's studies, gender studies, general humanities degrees, environmental studies, etc. Basically any degree where you are indoctrinated by your leftist professors into believing Marxism (critical theory, postmodernism) are actually useful and correct ideologies, will get you nowhere quick in the real world.
Try becoming a scientist, engineer, doctor, researcher, economist, lawyer, advertising/marketing pro, computer engineer, etc. without a degree. I majored in Literature and minored in film studies. Have had a very successful career as a copywriter and still going strong. Traveled the world, lived overseas for 10 years, always have new cars, nice houses and live in affluent neighborhoods through my whole career. I would have never made my way in without that degree.
Let me clarify something here. A college education and degree are highly valuable. Any student who decides to invest the time, money and effort in order to earn a college degree is setting the foundation to become successful in the world. Furthermore, I would also recommend that high school students take advanced placement classes because not only do those classes prepare them for college, students will earn college credit.
Haha so gereneric. I one response. Try being an M.D. without a college degree. I treat people and help alleviate their pain. I make not make millions but a college degree gave me the opportunity to do this. I have to disagree, this stament is too broad.
I think the message that they are trying to perceive is to not just assume that you are automatically going to be successful just because you went to university, you got be passionate about what you study and you need to work hard for it
If you think can be billgates or elon musk by skipping school u gon die very very poor and depressed these guys are born very talented with high iq if u are born with sleeping talent dont expect to become zukkerburg by dodgig school be fking humble if you look around the world there are more people who are uneducated and the number of poor people is the same
Jesus is the way to become rich...........
He said ,"Trust me and all of your needs shall be met."
…25 For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.
26 What will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul?
27 For the Son of Man will come in His Father’s glory with His angels,
and then He will repay each one according to what he has done.…
This is idiotic, I'm sure some people can succeed without any kind of degree, but they keep naming the same few individuals who become billionaires, keyword "few".. These guys are 1 in a 500 million. Your odds of succeeding without a college degree are substantially lowered. So to say a college degree is "useless" is fundamentally absurd, it provides you with a job and a financial security as long as you choose a good program. The steve jobs of our world are guys that had a great idea and had their fair share of luck to have that perfect idea at the perfect time in the market. I don't suggest to anyone to drop out of college and try your luck, because in many cases luck won't be there for you. It's even funnier because all these guys in the video only hire graduates for ivy league schools
All explenations are interesting in their own way and seen through the eyes from that particular individual. There just different ways to have a certain amount of income, succes, the feeling of being free and to do what you really want to do. Eventually we all need eachother. There is just no magic formula. When i was a teenager i was so focused on wanting to be rich and wealthy. But realize its not the best achievement in life at all!!!! It worked for me not to be distracted all the time by materialistic stuff and seeing people having luxerious lifestyles. Its about what you feel inside. Your heart and mind!!!!!! No stress, a piecefull clear mind without worries, and smile every day. Add positivity to the world we living in. We are all beautiful and unique creations.
Its so true grades are just number you can't do anything about it you get grades good grades and then grow up its useless my suggestion is explore more have fun as much as you can before dying do everything as much as you can and die without missing anything about life
Many students attend college not knowing why they are getting their degrees or they are unaware of the financial matters following their degrees added to the income with their degrees not knowing the income of their degrees they have chosen. I have owned my own business and have endured going bankrupt when the demand of my business fell with the economy. I was wishing I had completed my degree to have a career to ensure I have medical insurance. A degree is not a requirement. A skill is. I'm tired of depending on my skill and ready to do what I have been wanting to do--English teaching.
Degree gets you a foot in the door. Internships, entry level positions and networking opportunities. Graduating is just the beginning. It also depends on what you go to school for. If you spend 80 k at USC for a Bachelor of Arts in History then unless you want to keep going and be a teacher for example, yeah its not worth it. However, if you're a STEM major like me and want to work in Math, Science, or a quantitative field of business GOOD LUCK without a degree.
I got my degree, I paid my dues, I value it, I'm proud of it, it inspires me, it broadened my approach to the world, it made me analyse more, it made me research more, it made me interested in knowledge. If you don't go to college fair enough but you are no better or worse for not doing something. It's just your path and your employers will look at you accordingly.
A college degree is just a tool. If you don’t how to use it or if you just don’t use it then yeah it will be less useful. But even if all you did in college was party then it wasn’t a waste of time. As long as you do something, your time is not wasted.
But here’s also the flip side to that paper. I am in an art field and I have been rejected from jobs for not having a bachelors. They wouldn’t even look at my art because I didn’t check every part of their requirement list even if I was skilled enough to get the job done.
It’s a ticket, it’s an experience and it is worth trying for. There are more failed stories than successful ones so don’t think just because some made it that you will to. Think you will make it because you believe in yourself but also be realistic and know you will have more obstacles to go through without completing college
and now let's watch a video of all the people who never had the chance to go to school, and couldn't get a decent job, or start an own company without some one elses money...oh right...they probably live on the streets or are dead...
The title is extreme. I would agree College is Way way too expensive. However, there are many jobs, that I, without a degree, dont have a chance at that i could do better than the person they will hire because they have a degree. Many employers just require you have a degree even if its not related to the position they're hiring for. If you came up in a Super supportive Family, or if you are Super Smart, or have unwavering relentless focus with just average intelligence, and a bit of good fortune, you probably will not need a degree to make a Nice income and meet your dreams. Elon Musk says in this video there is no need to have a college or high school degree. I wonder how many non college/High school graduates he hires. (and then i read this video creators opinion on college, Yes, it can be a great place to improve your life)
Great video. Everything is 100% true. This is what I don't get with tests. I thought tests in school are to see if you know something. Well if you don't do well on a tests, then you may not know it that well. Well maybe instead of just moving on, we should try and go over the concept again.
