In that 2000 interview, I also asked Dell what the best decision he ever made was. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Dropping out of college and starting the company,Ã¢â‚¬Â he said. Ã¢â‚¬Å“That was a good one.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Looking at how things have turned out for Michael Dell, in the business world, you would have to agree.
Michael Robertson (of mp3.com and Linspire fame) wrote a thoughtful piece called The Biggest Gamble of Your Life (Is College Worth it?).
By all accounts, college isnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t for everyone.Ã‚Â Do what you love doing.Ã‚Â If that requires college, then by all means, do your best there.Ã‚Â Do the full analysis before heading off to college by default.
