Income is a fairly skewed stat, it's best to look at the median. But yes, it's not a very big number.

I never finished college (1 year at a CC), but I took over a family business... it's not what I originally wanted to do though. I was enrolled in Delta Connection Academy to become a commercial pilot, but then I was offered the family business and I took it.

I too would like to see this syllabus lol

Seems like everyone on E46F has a $150/hour job and drives an outdated BMW.

Have fun working at the grocery store.
Plenty of people don't have college degrees and are doing just fine.

Even with a BS/BA these days, people are only getting those jobs at grocery stores.

Sounds like that "useless piece of paper" could do you some good.
You don't need a useless piece of paper let alone two to do "independent research". The 8 year old down the street did some "independent research" on what video game he should buy next and had it cross-referenced with his best friend (i.e., peer reviewed).


Do you even lift?

ITT: broke college graduates who are/were suffocated by student debt and now making average or a little better salary trying to justify what they did is the only way to go.

If most wisely invested the money they spent on a big university, they'd never have to worry about retirement.
