Praxis CEO Isaac Morehouse sat down with myself and Derek Magill to ask us about our experiences in dropping out of elite colleges and starting our lives. I dropped out of Penn this past year after realizing that I not only didn’t need to be there to achieve what I wanted, but that it was actively making it harder for me to do so. What started as an annoyance with the environment around me grew into a realization that college simply puts off one’s ability to start their lives.
Derek had a similar experience at Michigan, where classmates spent most of their time posturing and he could gain better skills in classes and programs outside of school. After he dropped out, he applied to Praxis and joined our Winter 2015 class.
We talk about how college not only can be a distraction from your life but can actively make it harder for you to get ahead — even coming from an elite school. If you’ve ever thought you wanted to drop out of college, found yourself bored, unchallenged, or wasting away, you’ll want to listen.
