I want to be as good of a programmer as possible. I feel college is just a waste of time. Beyond math I dont find anything useful with college. Yeah english is good for communication skills and will help but as an overall even my comp sci classes are very slow paced and dont offer much you cant learn on your own. I spend a lot of my spare time working on my coding skills and I feel that is the best option for becoming more proficient in programming and leading to the best career opportunities.
It depends on your definition of working on code.
If you're teaching yourself algorithms and advanced data structures, then by all means skip it. If you're not, then you're in for a nightmare come hiring day when you get some NP Complete problems and Algos with a complimentary whiteboard to demonstrate your lack of knowledge.
The main benefit of college is social skills for a Comp Sci. NEVER underestimate the value of social skills, they'll be the determining factor in more than you could ever imagine.
