A record of all the college courses and tests I've taken from 2007 to 2017.

Since having graduated with an MS in CS from Cornell Tech, I’ve taken a total of 89 college-level courses starting from 2010.To provide context, that’s about 30% more than the average master’s student will take, including undergrad courses.Anyways, I value transparency and I could care less about formal education at this point, so here’s a record of all the courses and tests I’ve been through since 2007.

People are usually impressed that I, as a female minority, was able to graduate with a MS in CS from an Ivy League school by the age of 21.

However, what most people don’t realize is that for the most part, I feel the current education system is deeply flawed.In fact, the only reason I rushed through the whole thing is simply because I couldn’t wait to get it over with.Both my parents are educators so school has always been a big deal for me but I’ve never bought in to the whole “college” lifestyle and I’m glad I’m done with formal education for good.AND THANKFULLY, my parents and I have never had to take a single loan out either.

A few reasons I feel the current education system is terribly flawed include

  • the piss poor salary of teachers in the public school system
  • the randomness/luck that is the admissions process for “elite” colleges
  • the high number of incompetent people lucky enough to get accepted to such colleges and are able to ride off that branding for a while
  • “legacy” anything
  • privileged folks not understanding why “affirmative action” is needed
  • the ridiculous amount of money that is required to get a “good” education that has led to student debt being at an all-time high
  • the lack of accountability from schools to help students find a job
  • the abundance of for-profit schools and shitty coding bootcamp programs that are taking advantage of hopeful but “poor unfortunate souls”


How I think most people feel after they owe a shit ton of money for a degree that wasn’t really worth much.
