I'm saying this as a college dropout. When I was in College, I didn't see how it affected my future. I went to one of the top 100 universities in the U.S. and all of the stuff I learned was useless. I could get my degree in agriculture technology and would not have learned a thing except soil is where plants grow. In classes like astronomy, physics, and geo-politics, I often had to correct the teacher. I almost never did homework, I just couldn't get myself to do it, there was a wonderful world of learning and exploration out there. I never studied for a single test in my 5 years of college, though I passed them all and was almost always the first one done, so it wasn't for lack of intelligence. As the years went by, I became disillusioned with college and dropped out despite my parents greatest wishes. I had the same problem in high school, I saw it as like a day care thing, and didn't care about my grades because it was pointless as to what college I would go to and even felt like it had no bearing on my life.
