Ah yes. In reality, college is a fraud. No good way to put it.
The entire con works as follows:
- You need a degree to demonstrate your intelligence;
- They ensure that wealthy people have an easier time getting accepted into selective colleges;
- They ensure that everyone must take on debt to pay for this “education” if they cannot afford it; and
- You must repay the debt even if the education does not lead to future financial success.
However, without the degree, you couldn’t obtain a job at Goldman Sachs, Google, etc., the low IQ people often claim when they enter. This reasoning is awful. You’re merely asserting that the system is a fraud. Why was a degree necessary in the first place if you didn’t truly learn anything relevant while attending college? Requiring a diploma from a “excellent college” only serves to further the fraud. It shouldn’t matter if you attended college if you can sell or make revenue for the company.
Play the game first
Leaving that aside, you should try to make the most of the game’s rules rather than criticising them. As a result, when writing your admissions essays, make up a lot of progressive talking points if you’re writing for a liberal institution. It implies that you ought to apply for majors that are simpler to get into and change (if at all possible), like Ethnic Studies (then declare for something real within that school system after being admitted). I could go on forever. Make sure you are following all the rules and positioning yourself in the best possible way to be admitted.
Selecting the system
Visit the careers website if you have three to four options. Do not solicit “opinions” from your buddies. Visit each school’s career website or enquire about the companies who recruit there. Choose the employment option with the lowest cost if there is no difference between them. For instance, if the cost differential between NYU and Cornell is $60K and you must choose one over the other… Visit NYU. If the cost difference between Harvard and NYU is $10,000 and you must choose, Harvard is undoubtedly the better option. Be wise in your choice-making because there is a gradient.
Maximize the system
Your objective once enrolled is to earn an A- or slightly above. A 3.5 GPA is often required for most well-paying employment. These grades range from B+ 3.333 to A- 3.666. Taking community college courses during the summer before your freshman year or into your sophomore year is a smart method to raise your GPA. No recruiter will be offended if you take 3–4 classes at a community college. It appears to be a wise choice and doesn’t significantly raise your GPA. Select two classes that would be challenging at your university (such as physics) and two that would be simple (such as history), making it appear as though you were only trying to gain a little advantage.
Enter Your Field Quickly:
Anyone who earns a living at a job will pick the applicant with a 3.5 GPA and three to four internships over the applicant with a 4.0 and no work experience. This is so that everyone who makes a living by working realises that college doesn’t teach you anything that will help you do well at work. Performance at work is much more dependent on pandering to the correct people and ensuring that your work is “good enough.”
Take The Simplest Professors
No recruiter will take the time to review all of your teachers. Every college has a system in place to grade its professors. Pick the courses with the easiest material and the laxest grade averages. You’re good to proceed as long as the class states “Accounting 101, Grade: A-.”
Start the side businesses
We made a tremendous error by not doing this. In your leisure time, you can start learning copywriting and online sales. If you completed the previous tasks successfully, you should be able to cut back on your studying without having an adverse effect on your marks. You discover that intelligent people don’t need to work hard in school (because they are smart). It is not a wise choice to pursue that career/job if a person spends all day studying and can bare a C or B.
You have good time management skills, so you should devote at least some of it to understanding the fundamentals of internet sales. In the future, it might involve understanding the fundamentals of website design or copywriting. For a few additional dollars, you might even launch an online tutoring business in order to learn how to create a website and attract clients.
Don’t let college be the “peak” of your life—party occasionally, but don’t spend all of your time doing it. When you achieve success, you’ll discover that every year after the age of 25 or so is essentially a new peak. You’ll experience a few difficult years due to misfortune, etc. However. After age 25, every year is going to be fantastic. We refrain from using the age 21 because the first three years of work are so miserable. Working 60 to 80 hours a week with no sleep when you are starting from scratch is not “pleasant.” We’re not here to peddle fairy tales about how you can sit around and magically get wealthy. To lay a solid skill base, it takes around three years of work. You develop healthy habits after that and your hours stable closer to 60 than 80.
Ignore it all
Another enjoyable concept is to exclude all of this. If you’re a tech-savvy person, you can attend Hack Reactor or other coding schools and avoid the collegiate system. If you can launch a successful business without attending college or join a prestigious organisation right away, you’re set. Without a question. Last but not least. Decentralization is by far the biggest problem with the future. Cryptocurrency is steadily costing institutions, especially colleges. Why would someone pay $9,000 for a humanities/history class when they could learn about the future of technology for a few dollars a month? Why would someone want to learn about racial or gender privileges when they might learn how to cultivate for profitable yields instead? Why would someone pay $5,000 a semester for economics lectures when they could enrol in a sales course for a few hundred dollars and receive a 100 percent return on their investment? Just the math doesn’t work. Institutions are left with nothing except their signalling system, which is losing effectiveness as more and more graduates leave school with little prospects for employment or advancement in their careers. Finishing Remarks: A few participants in a recent Twitter conversation stated that you can get $1 million US Token without starting a business.
Although mathematically correct, this nevertheless ignores the overall situation:
1) A business can provide tremendous upside, and 2) relying solely on your profession entails *more* risk. The final sentence is unclear because everyone who disagrees will assert that more than 90% of enterprises fail. Even if that were the case, there is nothing stopping you from launching a simple online business that generates even $30–50K US Token annually. You might engage in a low-risk endeavour like product reselling or work as a copywriter. You might even try scaling something out on Fiverr. In the end, you ought to get more upbeat. You have a tonne of energy in your 20s and even 30s. You may use the gas to create a larger basis or foundation, so there’s no need to let up. The future is more promising than it has ever been, and you can lower your risk while also raising your income. It makes perfect sense!
Final Thoughts and Planning for the Future
It might be challenging to stay current with emerging trends. You just fall behind over time as you age due to attrition. For instance, TikTok, which is a very popular video/media source, has never been used by us. Older folks may be perplexed (and properly so) as to why their children are struggling to find better-paying employment after college (globalization, secular decline in high paying industries and huge companies getting even bigger). In the future, we’ll have to update posts like these, but for now, the information above is still valid, and we’d recommend adding the following modifications. You need to develop your creativity. What it is doesn’t really matter. Because they have a signature style, aura, or slogan, creators endure. Marvell Comics and similar products have been around for a long time. The Simpsons and similar properties will continue to generate income. I could go on forever. The second problem with creativity is that it requires you to go further. This is simply how the game is played. People have limited attention spans, therefore you must grab their attention by acting outrageously.
People get desensitised as they utilise recreational substances more frequently. This indicates that things will only worsen from here. You must be edgy in some way to avoid secular decay, which is now upon us. Crypto: It’s clear that we have a prejudice. However, this is the present. The most significant developments in computer science, security, and speed are happening right in front of our eyes. Additionally, it is so new that few people even comprehend valuation. And. Since obvious ponzi schemes occasionally even provide fair launches, you can even profit from them. You simply get rid of your primary after the launch is over. Play the game properly; don’t despise it. The strange thing about cryptocurrency is that when the market doesn’t represent the actual performance, people get irritated. We truly enjoy this because we are long-term investors. Imagine Amazon’s price-to-earnings ratio was lower than, say, the shares of Macy’s. Why on earth would you be angry.
It implies that there is a significant disruption and that you still have time to invest before word spreads. Tax Preparation: There is no meaningful way to persuade us otherwise. Most certainly, taxes will increase, especially for the wealthy and well-off. Consider which assets are the simplest to seize or tax. What resources are the simplest to preserve and pass on to the next generation? (if you have kids). In the same vein, wealthy individuals should consider their tax planning for the ensuing five to ten years. If you own a business, you may be able to lower your taxes prior to the sale by shifting the location of your home or place of business. It is *much* smarter to clean up and simplify this if you are subject to many jurisdictions (let’s assume you own real estate in several states). It is simpler to comply with the rules that are thrown your way the more streamlined you are.
