I am pretty sure you are better off spending four years working on a project of your own, and publishing a few papers or a book about it than you are spending time in university. This is effectively what a PhD asks you to do, except your (scientific or technical) project, papers, and book have to survive market criticism rather than department criticism. It is easy to get a good job or career with that kind of evidence. Or put another way, university is an adequate clerical training program for those people who CANT produce their own project. Entrepreneurship is for people who don’t even need to do the project, papers and book.
