Hello, thank you in advance for taking the time to read this. If there were any way I could get a job in the field of geology without going to college, I would do it. As far as I know, there is no way as acquiring an astronomically overpriced piece of paper first is mandatory.

If I want a job in the field of geology, doesn't it make sense to GO DO THAT JOB? Why am I paying thousands of dollars to not go practice the skills I need, substituting it instead with needless, unrelated information that I will forget after each completed test.

I once sat with a friend in her college class, they were talking about and taking notes on the history of turquoise jewelry in Mexico. This wasn't related in any way to what she wanted to do, it was just a class she had to take. What a money making scheme!

That's it, college is a big money making scheme and nothing more. It isn't needed and it isn't helpful. I'm willing to bet that a person in just about any major can cut out about 60% of their classes and do the job just as well, if not better now that they have time to FOCUS on THE SKILLS THEY NEED instead of wasting their time fattening someone's pocket.

The other 20% of those classes may be very helpful, but it's probably very hard to become good at the skills they teach in any meaningful way with all the extra bullshit.

Anyway, this is why, at age 23, I have yet to do anything with my life because doing anything comes at an astronomical price that I will likely NEVER stop paying for as long as I live. What a system.

What geology can you do without knowledge of the field?
