You are cutting corners way to fast here, indeed for some or most regular people university is a waste of time. For a few, it's an enabler to dig into a subject or specialization and to be surrounded by extraordinary people who form your character by giving you impulses of all sorts. I have to admit that you have to search for it, but it's there in most universities. The most important task a university has for me is to trigger your interest. I became a changed person by listening to some great professors at the university, they showed me the way to some great books and some great insights. You have to blame only yourself, and not the teachers for failing to find it.

That's what you need to find in a university. Not a make me rich, teach it all scheme. Real life starts after university.

Life is not all about how much money you make.

Professors aren't the only one's with life lessons. Professors (whom several are my friends) are typically the least experienced in life that I know. They hide behind acronyms and 'tenure' (at least in the US) and unless you go to a really really great school, then most of them have never had a board room seat, much less traveled to see the Dalai Lama.

Life can definitely 'begin' in Uni, but it doesn't have to.
