Hello, I have done much studying on my own with electrical engineering. I have also successfully built working curcuits, know essential tools like multimeters, solderless breaboards, ect. Know how to make PCB's. Know fundemental laws and formulas. So I don't consider myself a major newbie. I was thinking about going to college to do further studies in this, but it appears I don't qualify for financial aid. I never planned to work for someone, I plan to be more of an independant researcher. Robotics is my passion and thats what I plan to do. So, my question is should I still try to go to college to learn about electrical engineering and try to get the money situation with that to work somehow? Or should I just continue independantly learning electrical engineering? Thanks a ton for the advice.
