Paid To NOT Go to College

Alright, so the title of my blog post may be a little deceiving, but in essence that’s what it is. I did a story yesterday about the Thiel Fellowship. Basically, Paypal founder Peter Thiel has given “scholarships” to a small group of kids under the age of 20, to skip college (for now) and develop their own start up, based on a big idea they submitted to him. I met Andrew Hsu who is beyond smart…he graduated at college at age 16, and has left his Master’s program at Stanford to pursue his big idea! He was a fun interview and great guy…I hope to see his BIG IDEA come to light!
