Hi everyone, this is my first post. I’ve read the forums from here and lots of great info. I just wanted to ask real quick for any advice regarding finishing a bachelor’s degree. A little about me, I was just hired to be a loan officer in training with no previous mortgage experience through a family friend. I am really excited about it because the flexibility and also I feel like it’s a great lead way into better understanding investing in real estate and just getting my foot in the door of the real estate space. Of course, anything could happen with my interest and career down the line. But really I can’t see myself doing anything other than investing while being a loan officer or whatever my position is at the time. I also plan to create a few business and see where it goes to help finance more real estate investing.
I am in the middle of my business degree and I have a little over 2 years left till I finish. I feel like college is just a thing to do now and is a joke in some cases unless you’re really trying to pursue a specific career that requires graduate school. And anything a profesor teaches you nowadays is all In the textbook assigned to the student anyways. Should I just finish my degree, based on my goals will it really help me? Is the time and money worth it. Any advice helps thanks. I would hate to be overlooked just because I don’t have a degree.
This is heavy. You're basically asking the BP community if you should continue your education. That depends on you, your goals and aspirations. What do you want to do professionally? What is your desired lifestyle? Where do you want to live? You need to figure that all out, and formulate a game plan on how you want to get there. Will a degree in a particular field get you there, or will going out into the real world now get you there? That's for you to figure out.
@Al Diaz thanks for the reply. Yeah I feel like I have a general plan and getting a degree would just be the safe route. But that’s what I’m trying to get out of the norm. I’ll keep pondering
