my parents wouldnt give me $200k to start up my own business, and I probably woud have been disowned if i didnt go to college. Im saying if i had to pay for college completely by myself, i probably would not go, and i would take my chances at building up my own company.
I know i wouldnt have $200k in my hand, but I would have to pay all the loans off eventually which would be $200k i could have spent elsewhere. Didnt think it would be that hard to comprehend. And I bet i could start a profitable business in under 4 years with $200k. Yeah, maybe I wouldnt make a lot starting out but everyone has to start somewhere.
no. I have faith in myself that i could start my own company and if i had a choice between college and starting my own company, I would not choose college. Of course i'm grateful for my parents saving up the money and paying my tuition, and they would probably disown me if i did not go. Its not selfish at all, its my parents money and im not going to turn down college thats paid for. If i had a choice, i think i could gain more out of starting my own business and learning from real world experience than going to college, but my parents think otherwise and thats why im going to college. Selfish, not at all, difference of opinion, yes.
