Wonderful article Adam. I'd vote for staying in school, too, except for one case. If pressing needs demand time currently allotted to school, perhaps then taking time off might make sense. Zuck, Gates, and Jobs didn't drop out to start companies. They started companies with enough momentum, that school took away from their trajectories. That's the one case I see dropping out making sense. The dropout is too romanticized.

 

If managed correctly, time at college is an incredibly enriching experience. I'm amazed with what you're doing with the NYU Journalism Department. With school, where else can you explore intellectually, unfettered and full-time with a high density of peers? College provides a stage for which to test ideas and concepts.

 

It's the perfect incubator.
