Question by : How pointless is College/University for me?
I’m wanting to be a computer programmer, do web design and writing apps.
I know html, php and some java script, and am currently learning java through youtube.
If i know (or can easily learn) all the languages and how to do everything, would i really need to spend 3-4 yrs and 40+ thousand dollars on a “further education”?
FYI im in my last year of high school.

Not pointless, but completely essential. Companies want to see that degree. Put it to you this way, one person comes into an interview with no degree, and the next comes in with a degree, who do you think will be hired ultimately? My guess is the person with the degree. A degree is very valued in our society today. It demonstrates that you have the knowledge and skill in your area, and that you were dedicated enough to go out and pursue a college education.
If you decide not to go, expect to make a lot less money, and very little room for advancement in a company.
