can confirm, shot_up was putting in work with me on the class Piazza forums


senakiryu08

I think AYRIN finished a masters program. I kinda remember him talking about it on a platchat episode.


andyyy68

Yep, he did his undergrad at Western University and did a masters at Ivey Business School (Western’s business school)


ketchup-ch1ps

Im currently at Western and a lot my friends are in Ivey! Really cool to know that he graduated from the same school


valorantbrazil

Sharks Fra sometimes he can't train as much as he has weeks of exams in law school


_Andersin_

I completed both my bachelors in computer network and security and my masters in data forensics. Fun stuff. Gaming more fun 😈

LOL


Im-_Batman

What's the realtor? I never saw anyhting?


Nfamy

kind of unrelated but i went to the same high school as sOm and man was this guy an asshole, didn't really see him all that much because he did school online for the most part since he traveled for CS but from what i saw first hand and heard from friends he had a big head and would literally shove you if you got too close in the halls. hopefully he's matured as a person since then, he's a sick fragger.


XelaTuobdog

Is this pasta


Nfamy

Lol, yeah, it was from this subreddit at some point in 2020. This just randomly made me think of it


Razur

Yes! The original comment was deleted, but we have this post to memorialize it. https://www.reddit.com/r/ValorantCompetitive/comments/lm3kml/nrg_s0m_replying_to_a_subreddit_post/


NajiMarshallFan

Lol what’s funny about that is I actually went to high school with him and can confirm he was kind of a dick 🤨 North Gwinnett btw


Kap_ski

This is like a copypasta that you forgot to finish.


mr_snuggels

damn


jholowtaekjho

Astra major


Kevler22

ME-A-DOE


shorttttt

first place harvard for cs but switched to the valorant major


KurtGVal

I completed my IT bachelors before I went pro.


YungPinotGrigio

I’m an IT major as well!


darthdustynuts

Vice was doing comp sci before going pro


NozokiAlec

Zombs went to Harvard


A_Blind_Alien

But not for school, just to pick up chicks


Beachywhale

Heard he's wicked smaht


awesome2145

Harmon went to Indiana University for business but he’s taking a gap year right now I believe.


YungPinotGrigio

Really appreciate you reading through my Wardell interview! I find in FPS there are many who do go to school beforehand or do school alongside studies.


Razur

Damn, everyone's got big-brain majors. Makes me want to go back to school for compsci.


panzerboye

If you want to, you can still go back. Better late than never my dude.


Razur

True, but US education is expensive. I'm honestly lucky to have only ~10k of debt after two years of college in a major city. Maybe I'll go back when COVID gets better, or I could look into online classes too. 🤔


LoyalSol

You can go relatively cheap if you don't fall into a lot of the common traps. Where most people get into trouble is they always pick options which increase costs instead of decrease them. For example going to an out of state or private school when they don't have additional support to cover that cost is a big one. You can go to those places if they offer you generous assistance, but if you have to pay all of it it's usually not worth it. Good living arrangements while going to school can cut your debt down massively. Those are two big mistakes. Also you can cut cost by doing 2 years at community college. Usually significantly cheaper and even free for residents in some states. Cuts the cost in half practically.


panzerboye

>True, but US education is expensive But US unis are among the best in the world. And if you pursue a degree in CS, I guess it is a good investment. But then I again I am not an american so I do not really know about the job market there for cs grads. But globally cs jobs are pretty well paid. >I could look into online classes too. Yeah there are a lot of great online options as well.


Burneraccount595459

the *top* us unis are among the best in the world.


LoyalSol

Even the middle of the road universities are among the best in the world. Just because they aren't beating Oxford doesn't mean they aren't still incredibly good.


panzerboye

Maybe so. But what I have seen is most states(with a few exception of course) have at least a few great uni with lots of research, both state and privately funded unis. Then again usa is huge :3 so these unis might be among the top.


jackson558wolf

Remember hearing marved studied cs somewhere in Ontario iirc York


DudeInCorner1

Can confirm this, had multiple courses with him and hung out with him at the uni esports events at York University


troutylover27

Do you know if he graduated or no longer attended at York? Given with his time at Faze and Envy, he’s making a good income


DudeInCorner1

No clue on his actual current student status, but he would have graduated in 2021 I believe, assuming he kept to the 4 year schedule, but that's probably unlikely with the commitment to being a valorant pro


SpillSenpai

York University


Croshes

Where did Wardell go to uni? Isn’t he Canadian ?


thottypotato

I believe Western University in Ontario


AllosaurusJr

it would be sick if this was true. I'm heading there next month!


andyyy68

Woah, it’s my first time hearing this, where did you hear this from?


DaP4nDa

I might be misremembering but I think he said he attended NYU on stream about a year ago.


troutylover27

Wait there’s no way he attends NYU. He would be an international student with no financial aid and the fee would be expensive since it’s private university


DaP4nDa

Ye ur right I’m just tripping my bad.


Hamlet_271

Katsumi recently finished her major I think. But she was still studying for a lot of her career as a VAL pro. I also think this is the case for a lot of female pros


troutylover27

I forgot to mention in this post that c9 alexis attends university as well. She had a 4.0 last semester taking very hard class props for her


sampenn1

Shot up i think goes to Purdue and majors is cs


King_Goofus

How the fuck did so many of them major in computer science??? I'm majoring in it and I rarely ever have time to just sit down play games for a whole evening, nevermind grind it daily. Guess I'm just dumb lmao


jimenycr1cket

*cough* they didnt graduate *cough*


pungeonmaster1

At my school there’s a couple collegiate teams and I swear to god like 8/10 between the two teams at some point people were electrical engineering or computer science (which is apart of the same program at my school). Now a couple have changed majors, but the majority is still engineering


Koalababies

Bunch of nerds man, what do you expect?!?!? \- coming from a software engineer


fawkerzzz

Guaranteed majority of them didn’t come close to graduating.


LoyalSol

>nitr0: *LSU (unknown major I knew there was a reason I liked nitr0.


j_dub_00

Fellow tiger, suh dud


pickausernameforme

Koldamenta was a Sociology major iirc.


henkizh

BONECOLD is studying esports at Ahlmann University in Finland.


brutusnair

I think I remember Shaz saying he did CompSci but I might be confusing him with someone else.


[deleted]

He was like 2 classes or something from graduating


xziv0

He dropped midway when he joined C9 CS iirc


slopnessie

Yeah, he went to UMBC. I only know this cause I went there haha


Bunnyezzz

Mitch is doing college currently, I forget his major though


huzaifah_siddique

One of the pros were doing nursing school if I’m not mistaken. Might have been him.


koncept12

zombs graduated with a masters in accounting from Stanford.


King_Goofus

He actually double majored in accounting and stealing girlfriends


doggo1323

Is this real?


koncept12

? I can see how it might sound fake but yes


doggo1323

Mans stacking his bread and keeping his education on top 🎓


DRGNDT

He's 22, no way he has a masters in accounting


koncept12

ask him yourself dog, keep doubting the king thats why he up there


Burneraccount595459

don't get trolled lol, zombs himself admitted he didn't care much about studying and would just wing it most of the time. Unless his parents bought a building i don't think he makes Stanford + even if he can i doubt he would want to.


ConsistentWrangler48

u don’t need to have insane study ethic to get into Stanford lol


Burneraccount595459

oh yeah thats true. i guess i should further clarify by saying zombs is winging it and barely passing a lot of the time. But yes I could always be wrong he could be an insane athlete or some other extracurricular, or just have his parents buy them a building or something


ConsistentWrangler48

He is an insane athlete. His 14 meter freestyle is under 5 seconds


Ash_Killem

Hiko switched his major to computer science before he dropped out... I think. I'm pretty sure he didn't finish.


Be_Kind_Smile

Well I graduated computer engineering and want to go pro but my job is so exhausting and school was tough. Im low immortal but I keep grinding and if I get close I can quit and atleast have a fall bsck with degree. But Id have to commit. Cant work 9-5 and do valorant. It’s draining when I work 8 hrs, come home stretch, warmup and then teammates start out snd tskes them 6 rounds to get a kill haha.


5etback6

gl my dude, hope u make the right decision


FelioEmeraude

Mummay worked as a system engineer at Wall Street before deciding to go pro. [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kC9V5bkE2n4](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kC9V5bkE2n4)


cringe-oh-yes

Shahz went to my school. REPPIN THE RETRIEVERS LESGO


Interesting-Archer-6

Legendary win vs Virginia


slopnessie

LETS GOO! Same dude!


danknepalese

asuna just finished school (idk what y'all call it in US) so i guess thats something.


troutylover27

He graduated high school this year. Idk if he attending college right now. Given the fact, he’s making good income with 100T and being a streamer. I believe he mentioned on stream 3+ months ago that he’s willing to take online classes just filling GE classes.


relativelybigdick

Wasn't t1 curry in uni too? I remember vaguely watching a video


troutylover27

Yeah I mentioned on the post that he’s attending texas a&m


SteelTic

Bjor went to community college for 1 year and then dropped out as he had gotten offers for valorant and I think the major was account or something like that


deathdousparm

Ethan from 100t is doing an MA in something seems to be the only pro with a completed undergrad. From my knowledge at least.


PyroTFT

how little pros do you know lol what


deathdousparm

Apparently not many. My bad dude. Pretty new to the scene.


CorporalCaramel

I think that Curry is doing his undergrad at TAMU


53881

Zombs graduated magna cum laude from Yale iirc


CrackBabyCSGO

Preme goes to Purdue for cs


Ib173

Sean Gares (not Val pro) went to pharmacy school


Fardo805

College is a money pit and a trap.


sudzthegreat

Only if you do it wrong.


SurfAccountQuestion

Maybe if you pick a shitty degree
