Your argument is that you don’t have to go to college to be a successful. Therefore, you probably shouldn’t go to college.
Actually, my argument was that people in general shouldn’t go to college because they’ll major in useless crap. I don’t really think anyone should major in art stuff frankly (and other things).
You COULD be successful, but in this day and age college is a waste of time for arts (as I said, you do better by doing things you like and going at your own pace rather than doing something some pretentious jackoff assigned to you. Also should mention you learn more by DOING rather than just “practicing”).
Not using your right hand is a hindrance. Going to art school is a hindrance.
A better argument would be: The benefit gained from getting an art degree is not worth the cost of college.
That was my point though. You may have just misinterpreted.
the numbers would probably suggest that college is a good investment (even for art majors).
Nathan I tire of this little debacle, either concede that 99% of art degrees are a waste of time and money, or just gunnae drap it.
You three days ago:
Do you NEED an art degree to become a successful artist?
Did you have to [go to Julliard] in order to become a successful musician?
I think it’s fair for me to characterize your argument as:
You don’t have to go to college to be successful.
I agree that this discussion is unlikely to lead to anything productive. I encourage you to concede that going to college is actually a benefit for most people.
I encourage you to concede that going to college is actually a benefit for most people.
But you literally provided no evidence of such a claim.
