25 Cars You Could Have If You Didn't Go To College

In today’s world of computer programmers, dot coms, and app developers, it feels like every day you hear about the new breed of millionaires who either skipped college altogether or dropped out early. Certainly these lucky SOBs are the outliers (stay in school kids!) but combined with the rising cost of colleges, more and more people are wondering if they need to spend the tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars on an education, oftentimes putting themselves into debt.

Then what happens when they graduate? Everyone knows the job market is terrible! Worst ever! Even The Economist agrees that paying for your expensive school was a bad decision (source). And just to think that you could have bought a dope car with all that dough. How dope? Well the results are kind of upsetting, actually.

Simply put: For the price of a four-year private institution, you could be pushing easily the nicest whip of all your friends.

We calculated the cost of attending popular four-year colleges (tuition + room + board) and then found the appropriate MSRP (manufacturer’s suggested retail price) of a nice car. Check out our findings below. Warning: have tissues nearby.

Edit: 95% of the cars listed are of equal, or lesser cost than the college. A few of the cars are slightly more expensive but we can look the other way because what’s $2K when you’re talking $120K+.
