I don't plan on working for someone for the rest of my life, but I understand that it's not everyone's desire to take that risk

The point of article like this is to show that there is a way to have a good career without college, and a lot of people don't realize that. The Electrician who is debt free, licensed, and earning $50/h working for himself after 5 years was making a way better choice than the liberal arts major who is working at starbucks 5 years later with $100K worth of debt.

Both examples you listed are extremes.

Not everyone goes to school and accumulates $100k in debt for a worthless degree. I’d argue that’s the minority.

Same for self employed electricians making $50 / hour.

These threads always turn into “sh*t on college.”

They never talk about the guy who went to juco, transferred to Duke w/ a fat a*s scholly, and works enterprise sale exec for T-Mo.

Also, as someone mentioned, almost all of these require a decent amount of trade schooling.

BX disappointments think they can just rollover and start caking based on the premise of these threads.

Seems like everyone in this thread is super successful and didn’t need college. Most people will need further education to get on that level. How many of those jobs listed still require significant schooling?

Fam I went to art school

You're not raking up $100K in debt studying Liberal Arts

$50K most and even that is rare

And if you can't find a job in the Art related field chances are you probably sucked

These lists are very misleading. While you might not need a degree, you need some sh*t ton of experience or certifications, or both before you get a chance at most of these

This scenario you listed in incredibly far fetched

A liberal arts degree is not costing you $100K

And that term "Liberal Arts" is a broad spectrum that many Core classes fall under which vary from being a teacher to being a psychologist to being a designer

Nice try at tryna sh*t on College Education tho

The guy who went to JUCO and transferred with a "fat a*s scholly" is less likely than the licensed electrician who makes $50/h we all seen Last Chance U...roster of 50+ players but you see a handfull getting those D1 scholarships....yet there are 694,900 licensed electrician in the U.S.A

and in no way am I sh*tting on a college degree...rather degrees that aren't worth the cost to acquire them...take a look at the most expensive schools in the country...a lot of them are liberal arts schools...someone is getting these types of degrees

I do life and health independently and i sell property and casual inaurance for a firm.


You really make more money on the life and health, but i get guaranteed money. With the life and health you have to purchase leads and they're expensive as fu*k, but when they pay off they pay. You can make 4 or 5 grand in about an hour. Working at the firm its salary plus commission but it's a for sure check twice a month

take a look at this list and note home many of this top 40 are liberal arts schools...

and a liberal arts degree is not a broad spectrum, it has a strong focus on academic area languages, the classics, history, literature...so you think its smart getting a liberal arts degree paying Vassar $54K a year and then becoming a public school teacher? and no one was sh*tting on a college education, rather certain programs people study that weren't worth their cost

UnElevator mechanics (union) in DC make more than any of those and don't work time and a half. Everything is double time. And their benefits are parallel with government employees.

Electricians make 100k... 20k by the start of February working 6-10s

like i have posted before



take a look at this list and note how many in the top 40 are liberal arts schools...Mass school of art...one of the most recognized in its field, has people from all over the country...out of state tuition is $31K a year...so unless all their students are in state, which they are not, someone is acquiring $100K of debt...and again...Columbia, Sarah Lawrence, Vassar, Trinity, Bard...all these universities have art programs, have top ranked art programs...and cost $43K a year or more...so YOU might of went to a cheaper school that had decent tuition, but there are a great deal of people that didn't

Lol - ok fine.

But let's check it - how many Black & Hispanic Men are going to be able to attain many of the jobs on this list w/o a degree though????

College degrees are almost necessary for the MAJORITY of Black and HIspanic men in this country to beat the game. Please do not fall for this rhetoric. Many of the high paying jobs on this list never go to black or hispanic people.

As someone who used to be a consultant at MBB, I was my head of recruiting at the undergraduate I attended. I made sure to go OUTOF MY WAY to encourage black men and hispanic men to apply.

After the first round round of interviews where I would interview them with an a*sociate, i would make sure to big these minority candidates up. LOL, the partners would take my considerations, then 2nd round interview them, and find ANY excuse to blcok them ( not in line with the company culture, his GPA is a bit lower, doesn;t seem to have intellectual curiosity needed, and other bullsh*t), and this was with a degree from a great university.

Don't be fooled y;all, please. We aint getting the hookup that other races/ethnic groups do

You just sent me a link of random schools with most of them being Private Colleges

Private colleges are expensive no matter what you study so that's not a good argument

And you're talking to someone that graduated from an Art school (Parsons, NY) So save me the back and forth
A liberal arts degree is a broad spectrum. It's the core classes that determine your career


A liberal arts major offers a broad overview of the arts, sciences, and humanities. Within the context of a liberal arts degree, you can study modern languages, music, English, anthropology, history, women's studies, psychology, math, political science or many other disciplines.
