College is a scam. Just take the money and buy real estate, and learn a trade online for free.

Who is lending you $100k-$200k to buy real estate as an 18 year old? Nobody unless you're rich already.

Many middle-class parents spend $100k putting their child through college (tuition + rent).

Instead, they could use that money for a down payment on a rental. Their kid then learns to code (or whatever) for free while having a place to live and cash flow from an asset.

What's your email address? Would like to reach out.

Yeah feel free simplecomplexhn@protonmail.com
