In “What Could You Do With $20,000?” Blake Boles enlightens students to not go to college and spend their $20,000 on tutors and to go to different places because students end up being in debt $20,000 after college and are overqualified and unemployed. Bole states that with $20,000 you can get a better education and life and not be in debt. Bole says with $8,000 of his $20,000 he would spend travelling and going to new places, with $3,600 he would get books and private tutors, with $3,20 he would spend on new technology, with $100 he would spend this on portfolio postings on the web for the year, and with another $100 he would buy a new pair of running shoes. This totals up to $14,900 which saved him around $5,000. So after four years at four percent interest he would have earned $22,000. Bole wants us to spend our money on things that would help us more than college would in the future.
|"Better Than College" by Blake Boles|
Boles is definitely wrong in his video “What Could You Do With $20,000?” when he says it would be better for us to not go to college because when you go to college you get prepared for the future when you get a big paper due or have to write a report on something. When you are in college there a lot more resources and a lot more opportunities than not going to college. At college you can you have a lot more reliable resources like your teachers, your friends, and the library where you can answer your questions you have on something. You also get ready for your job when you have to work more and not as much free time. If you don’t go to college and you never have to work than when you get a job you won’t be ready if they give you an assignment or something big to do. Bole says that you might end up as overqualified and unemployed. People hiring you would want you to have more than just the requirements of the job. This shows them that you did not do bare minimum in college. When people hire they also see if you went to college. It is easier to get a job if you have been to college. When you are not in college it would be harder to make friends in other countries and you would not have the good experiences of college. You can visit other places and join the study abroad programs where you can travel to and have fun at a different country with other college students. College in the end would overall be more rewarding than not going to college.
