Unfortunately, a formal education is often overpriced.
I browsed Udemy today, a website that sells professionally designed courses, and I realized that these courses are essentially the same type of lectures that I am currently taking at Villanova.
But I understand that I am not just paying for knowledge, I am paying for certification.
Right now, that’s what people value. People value status.
I don’t like it because I believe in meritocracy, but I need to understand the system before I can change it.
