Life in the USA

Elon got into UPenn on a scholarship (though he still had to take out some student loans) in 1992.

He supposedly had "massive student loan debt" when he was starting Zip2....though this is debatable, because college was still pretty cheap back then...and he had a scholarship....

He used to throw house parties, and collect money (which is common on most campuses) but he never drank (didn't like the taste of alcohol) and instead just managed the money for his house (which included longtime friend Adeo Ressi, who had started a Zip2 like company of his own before Elon had). See how much it pays to have the right company/situation in your formative years?
