So at one of those points in life where a big decision will soon need to be made, and some input from my fellow audio peeps would be helpful.

I'm currently at a community college and was planning on transferring to a yet undecided university to study film scoring. This is because I want to write video game and film music professionally.

However, school is actually keeping me too busy to take opportunities. There are people NOW presenting me with opportunities to score for their projects. Plus, I met a guy in Denver (while visiting my brother) who works as an in-house composer for a small film studio there. He said he really wants me as his apprentice. I also met an AMAZING jazz pianist who wants to take me under his wing in that same city.

So I could:

A) Go to a university, get in debt, and hope the education and connections are worth it. Or-
B) Move to Denver with my brother and apprentice under people who have jobs in film scoring and jazz performance.

Seemingly everyone has told me for years that I NEED to go to college. But my piano teacher, who has four degrees including a doctorate from a leading conservatory, told me to "not let college get in the way of [my] education." He said to take these opportunities while I'm young.

So what do you think? My gut keeps telling me to ditch college, but it's a little frightening.

I think you said it best. I've been taught all my life that you need to go to college if you want to get somewhere in life, but I've realized that school isn't the place to learn if you're the entrepreneurial type. If you've already got an objective in life, you don't need to finish college to reach them.

College really is only there to give you a paper that'll make it easier to find opportunities, but that doesn't mean it's the only way, so I say go for it.

Kind of weird to think of your forum life as the accumulation of a few pages.
