I recently had the choice of choosing a job which i could earn quick cash but instead i choice to study for a course that i was anticipating and tried so hard to get in. Some of my friends say i did the right thing while others say i did the wrong thing. If you had the choice to choice between education and quick money which would you choice?

You made the right decision. If you were waiting to take the course and finally made it in, it will pay off. You'll have years to earn "quick" cash. Money comes in and is spent so quickly, your education will stay with you and won't slip away.

I guess it would depend if the money was steady. With an education, money will eventually be there. With cash, it may or not be.

Man good decision to choose education over quick money. Because once your finished your education there is more benefits than you would get from your quick cash job like you would be more respected and at ease make maybe more money doing what you want to do

Without a doubt, Education, that is what's going to pay off in the long run. Yes, it's going to take time to get where you want to be, My mother always say "You have to crawl before ou walk" and I believe that, but I would rather have "steady" money rather than "quick" money.
