My son went to unc, left with 3 degrees

Chemistry, economics and Asian studies, is professional level in mandarin. Just knew he would get a state department job. Well they weren’t hiring when he graduated. He really didn’t like anything else the degrees offered him. He sat upstairs for a year and taught himself how to code. Went to a coding boot camp that costs 18% of first year salary. Spent a couple of months working on his portfolio, then got a job at a start up in Manhattan for 90k. 9 months later he is working at google for well over 200k.

So what he did at unc really didn’t matter as he could have done what he ended up doing without ever going to college. Now he is blessed as he is truly smart enough to do most anything. But it just shows how crazy the entire higher education system has become.
