I agree and disagree with that statement because there are talented people that still resort to flipping burgers to make ends meet while playing the waiting game. A lot of people that go to graduate schools don't understand that the most important part of that experience is networking, and that's what usually fails these people.
OK I'll give you that. School helped me become well connected, that's all I really cared about. Didn't finish but became an alumnus and I used my school network to build my business.
I got much more from college that way than finishing. I stopped because of debt. I didn't want another 40K on my credit and another 2 years wasted.
