from Steve Jobs – Commencement Address at Stanford University on Rap Genius

Meaning

It is interesting that Steve Jobs holds this view, as billioniare Peter Thiel shares this same view that college is pointless and that highly gifted students shouldn’t be going to college. This is why he started the Thiel Fellowship which is a reality TV show where extremely gifted students compete against each other to get the Thiel Fellowship to drop out of college, get 100,000 dollars and work on their project.
