      Isn't there a trade school that can get you anything close to nursing (or medical field). I wanted to be a registered nurse but does trade school has anything else?

                Blue Collar workers are the backbone of america. The problem is my generation are just pussys and are afraid to bust there ass. Thank God my old man is a blue collar and taught me at 12 to have a work ethic.

                  Tell me about it. I went to college and majored in business and I freaking hated it. Accounting, business law, economics, and the rest of all that crap. I took a course in electrical theory and I was hooked! Now I'm making more money then my brother with his master's degree and Im having fun investing in real estate for cashflow. Best decision I made.

                                For me, I still want to finish my degree and go into marketing research (that field is growing too and not many people are talking about it). So I'm planning to do that but I feel like I might get this career first and start saving then go into trade school for baking to start my own bakery.

                                  College is not worth it. Think about it. Today the average college student studies an average of 1 hour for four years. This is nothing. Don't go to college unless you are majoring in STEM.

                                        When people do the calculations, they also neglect to mention the compounding interest from investing the money your earn 4 years earlier, and the catching-up that grads have to do.

                                        Wish I never went the college route. I'm still on the fence, trying to do both college and a trade ATM.

                                          There is evidence to be critical of trade/tech/vocational schools, though. Unless one is seeking to work in the professions promoted by them, then they are not really the best institutions for everyone. Either way, it should be up to a person if they want to go there or go to a college or university or, dare suggested, learn to do a profession on their own? Have we forgotten that one doesn't technically need a piece of paper and attendance record to prove one can work at a job competently? And let's be honest, most jobs in trade schools, unless you seek to be in those professions, are really not worth it other than for possible but not guaranteed monetary gain. Realistically resulting in a total waste of time and brain power.

                                            I took business by default, no degree, but an advanced 3 year diploma, I somehow managed a job paying 53K right out of school doing maintenance coordination at a construction company while my buddies with 4 year degrees are unemployed or making 37K / year at big banks in cube farms.
