College use to be super cheap (UCLA/UCSB/Berkeley being only 10k a year including room/board/tuition back in the late 90's). Now those same schools are 27k a year. The average undergraduate having over a 100k dollars in student loan debt.
What I'm trying to say is that college use to be a no brainer investment, but now it is just the opposite. Unless you qualify for some serious FAFSA, Pell or Cal Grants, don't bother going because it simply isn't worth the debt if you're paying it out of your pocket. Instead, use the money you save by not going and invest into real estate or create your own business and be your own boss. Don't fall into the trap by thinking college is the only way to be successful

-There are many highly publicized myths, the most popular being, that there is rampant, uninhibited sex, and a bevy of busty wanton teens and young adult girls just waiting to have sex with any man who’ll have them. In reality, there is rampant sex, but everyone’s not hot, it’s sloppy, the girls are half-dead from booze and drugs, the guys go limp half of the way through and 1 out of ever 3 girls has been slipped something and ends up date-raped.
-The truth of the matter is, college is another form of high school with more ‘freedom’ less restrictions and triple the money paid. Or, more accurately a brainwashing “group” akin to the Manson Family or the Heaven’s Gate Cult.
College can however be a fun and exciting place, mainly for freshman and sophomores who can’t believe there is SO MUCH pot, coke, speed and alcohol readily available and mostly for free.
