Unless you're doing a subject like law, medicine, or engineering, University is a waste of time and the value of vocational qualifications and apprenticeships is being unfairly diluted by pointless shitty degrees like geography or media studies.

>law, medicine, or engineering

Manipulative Asian parents are so crazy about these three majors because they think these are dream majors that guarantee prestige and wealth, regardless of how much of a faggot they are. They can continue with their anti-intellectual mindsets, devote the bulk of their free time towards debauchery and contend for mediocrity and somehow they still can be rich if they were to be doctors, engineers or whatever.

The truth is, It doesn't fucking matter what are you going to do in life. You just have to be disciplined, determined and be very, very, VERY good at what you are doing. That's the way to earn money and be well-recognized. That's how Steve Martin made it in his career.

Good point. I got into medicine purely because I wanted to, with no real influence from my parents (neither of my parents have degrees or are particularly pushy); however the amount of people doing medicine because their parents wanted them to, or because they didn't know what else to do is astounding.

The interview/screening system is pretty basic and easy to "defeat", so it doesn't really filter out people who are on the course against their will, as it were.

Very true. Society might not be so worthless if parents taught their children self-discipline instead of forcing ambitions unto them. That's what separates a good parent from a parent who just wants to use the child to feel good about themselves.

>> No.2354954

>>2354916

but u cant deny those 3 majors have a higher chance of you getting a decent place in society, not necessary a god tier place in society which we know is BS. I think it has more to being risk-adverse than anything else. Play it safe.

>You just have to be disciplined, determined and be very, very, VERY good at what you are doing. That's the way to earn money and be well-recognized.

But believe it or not, it is the ONLY way you want to have a good life. Don't think being a doctor you are excused from it - if anything you need to work your ass off a hundred times harder to clear off the gargantuan debt of yours.

Be wary of those rankings. There seems to be alot of emphasis on their research programs which have nothing to do with students in general.

My parents let us choose whatever I wanted to be, but my old high school classmates aren't so lucky. A friend of mine was forced into a biology course as preparation for a career in medicine. Now she works in a call center.

While me, who is way overdue to graduate already, made more money doing a part-time job that needed skill and creativity. My college has a name but the actual education kind of stinks (I know more than the teachers at times), but all I need is a degree so I can start getting accepted full-time to the jobs that I know will advance my career.

Sounds cliche these days, but game design, something I've been interested in since I was three (or somewhere around that age). I've already made several working ones, and a company is willing to hire me with a nice salary on the condition that I graduate first. I try to cram as many courses I can per term so I can have that one over with.

Don't worry, we live in different countries. The college stinks like I said and everyone, including the teachers, are lazy, and it's laughably easy to get a merit scholarship. I've been self-studying the stuff I actually need to learn anyway.

I've also been interested in game design since I was able to use a computer, but I don't live in a third world shithole so I decided against CS. No insourced jobs here.

Physics is not a bad major, I guess. ;_;

I know they don't pay you much, but how's the cost of living? Like, how well can you live? Working at a call center, can you afford like a two bedroom apartment and a car or?

>> No.2355258

>>2355240
If you're living alone, basic call center pay is usually enough to pay for all your expenses and still have some spending money. Two bedroom apartment, sure. I don't think you can afford a car though. If you already have one and don't travel too far or use it too much, you can afford the gas.

Call centers here are past their prime, although that could be attributed to the situation in America since majority of the call centers here cater to them. I know quite a few people who got laid off.

I was offered a place in Cambridge to study med science after I left sixth form but I turned it down. I really don't want to force myself into something I don't enjoy just because of the high wage.

I don't know what to do with myself now, really. I'm stuck working a few part-time jobs and fixing computers, it's enough to live on but I don't have much spending money.

Maybe I should start my own website or something. Take up martial arts, go to the olympics, form a band. Fuck knows. For now i'll just take it easy.
