    School!

    I was just thinking about how some people dropped out of school and now makes a ton of money online. Do you think you need school or would you drop out to make money? I personally would not drop out because I always say you can have money today and be broke tomorrow so school is a backup plan for me. btw if you we're to go broke you would not have to work at a lousy job. how about you?

    I think dropping out of school would be an offence to all the people on the planet who doesn't have to chance of deciding weither they go or not: they just CAN'T.

    And I would never risk leaving school for an online venture. In my opinion, it's a perfect plan to ruin your life.

    It's no needed since there is no guarantee of being success even you do making money online. So, leaving school is very wrong decision. It's too risky. And also, MMO is business which can be done only 3-4 hours or less, and you can do it after or before school. It's flexible timework.

    True, but I don't have the power to do that in here. You should have noticed Farrhad, not me (Don't worry, I'll handle it).

    Agree! also you have to keep your business going for years to actually be able to not work again

    Why would you ever drop out of school for the internet? First of all, you don't just go to school to learn course material. You go for the social aspect. Friends, finding great teachers, learning how to deal with BS. I'd take school over the extra eight hours it would give me online. And really, who wants to sit at a computer all day!?

    School is important. Am I going to need US History in my line of work? Probably not, but I'm not going to drop out completely.

    Schools not that important. I have been in school for about 12 years and you learn the same thing over and over again. For example Im not that smart in school in I've been in school for a while but with computers I am very smart and I only been working with computers for 5years. Im not saying dropping out is cool, all i am saying is make sure you have a back up plan.

    This is the question I always think about.

    Is it all worth it?

    I wasn't addressing the learning. I was talking about the socializing.

    I will never ever drop out of school. Teens make money just as a part time. Dropping out of school for this is totaly a worst idea.
