What are the pros and cons of going to college?

I’ve hired a bunch of great employees that didn’t go to college.

In fact, in each of my start-ups, several of the most driven, highest-performing folks never even started college.

I didn’t care, discriminate, etc.  But I noticed … and it’s tough.

Really, the deck is stacked against you.  The presumption is against you.

If you can prove yourself otherwise — great. 

If you can start Facebook or Box or Microsoft in college – great.

 If you can’t — you’ll have to do it in the real-world, starting from the bottom.  That can be painful.
