Degrees are not a dime a dozen, as people like to say. However, 30% of Americans do have a Bachelor’s Degree. But that doesn’t mean they are easy to get.
I knew a number of people at university who were not college material. One was one of my best roommates. Almost everyone I knew like that dropped out. And they tended to get C’s.
If you have an IQ below 100, you probably should not even be at university. Even a 100 IQ is going to be a problem.
I also knew quite a few people who had moved out, worked quite a bit and were also at university. Almost every single person I knew who was working significant hours on a job while going to university subsequently dropped out.
Our stupid culture idolizes no-fun workaholics who go to school full-time and work full-time and engage in similar types of self-abuse, but the truth is that statistically, the more hours you work while you are at university, the lower your grades are and the more likely you are to drop out. I think people at university could maybe work up to 20 hours a week and that’s it.
If you’re going to work a lot of hours while going to university full-time, you probably should not even be at university, as odds are you are going to drop out.
