Yep, thankfully i'm in this program or I'd be screwed. The sheer amount of influence I'm getting is insane. I'm talking to people and having random informal lunches with people in my University(professors) that are heads of their departements or deans of my entire college and just is amazing how awesome it is.
I'd still finish proper tertiary education in any case if I were you. Even if you're not going to apply the gained knowledge, a degree shows proof of intelligence and discipline, which is useful even when you have a lot of experience in the job you may be applying for. Plus, once you start working there usually is no return, living the student life is fun, and it will all end when you start working.
And I totally get what you're saying too. I get real low grades for stuff sometimes too, and I always feel cheated when that happens -- like I spent all that effort for naught. I realize this may sound odd coming from an over ambitious straight A student, but it's true. Sometimes school can be ridiculously tough, but always aim to not let your self-confidence sway. Personally my self-confidence is prone to go on roller coaster rides though.
Yeah I will. However all my professors for this program have all hinted at and even said that if this program is extremely successful. They will want most of us dropping out/taking extremely reduced credits. My College's business programs are having problems in the last few years and my school isn't too known for business and entrepreneurship. My program is supposed to put Virginia Tech on the map. The amount of funding we are getting is insane. The Univ is spending $100,000 on each student here in terms of an investment.
Almost always it's the system that is wrong -- not you. You won't get a nice constant amount of workload and difficulty at university, it varies hugely, also from person to person. You may be struggling with certain things, but don't let that get you down. In such cases you usually aren't the only one, and even if you are then it's not that you're doing anything wrong either per se. Just bad luck.
If you get frustrated about it, it'll only pull you down. I know this all too well. Just try to not let it get you down and keep studying hard. It may be tough, but such is the way of life.
Yeah, the system is flawed.
