Why I Wish I Hadn’t Gone to College

Commentary by Stephen Downes

Joanne Jacobs links to this post by Keri Savoca. The gist is that university didn't prepare her for a career, and left her in debt, so she should have done something else instead. But her alternatives (start a business, build a recording studio) are unrealistic. The advice in the article is poor advice - poor enough that I authored a response pointing out why her argument is wrong, and how she could have improved the likelihood of success after college with a little planning.
