I am currently a 3rd-year Chemical Engineering student. Why did I choose to study this? I did a Google search of: "highest paying jobs" when I was in high school, and chemical engineering seemed the most palatable of those on the list *facepalm*.

A few years passed and I realized that none of the chemical engineers I knew were living the life I had envisioned for myself. There had to be a better way.

That lead me to start looking for ways to make big money. After being distracted for several months by Gurus selling their courses, I finally came across TMF and it changed my way of thinking about things (Thanks MJ De Marco).

Right now I'm figuring out how to transition from student to Fastlaner and whether I should stay in University or drop-out.

Hi Dane, Welcome to forum :) !

As for dropping out you should read this first as broad -view: GOLD! - Sorry, But the Forum Can't Make Your Life Decisions For You!!

But to be more specific: the guys you read about that dropped-out from schools, had already something to drop out to - Bill, Steve, Mark etc.

So the advice would be to keep studying and start building something on a side. If you'll get traction, then consider going full time.
