Can a college dropout become a data scientist?


I’m a college dropout but I really want to become a data scientist. Is it possible for me to become one or is it completely impossible?


If you can create algorithms that any college going scientist cannot create you will be the best data scientist.

Why cant you start your college again in the field of data science.


Definitely you can. We have various articles and learning path for beginners. If you want to start from scratch, you can refer this

Here’s another link for the basic math required


I’ve tried college twice and I really couldn’t adjust to the method of teaching. I wasn’t a bad student but I felt that I wasn’t really learning anything and I couldn’t take that for too long so I dropped out. So I’ve decided to learn without a college and hopefully come to love learning again.

Thank you for you reply :slight_smile:


I guess it’s back to intensive study for me, now that I know it’s possible. Thank you for the resources I think I’ll be using them extensively. :slight_smile:


Everyone can if you put your mind into it.
You can go to college again or enter any program to learn the basic.
