people finish their phd at 25/26 if he was serious about education as he claims he would long be a full fledged academic.

Kinda easy critic, bitter in some regards.
He did multiple majors simultaneously; Engineering, Neuroscience, Biology, etc.
In the US, for kinds like him, a Ph.D. program can take 5 years.

Postgraduates here in France in Medicine study for at least 7 years (and 12 for certain fields, like Cardiology). Not uncommon to see a 29 years old still in Uni.

I just don’t have those physical or mental capabilities bro.

I don’t have the capacity to have that schedule, lest I jump off the Burj Khalifa.

Same, I did 10h work/ day, and it was so draining!
This guy's a machine tbh

Lol, I know people who delay their study programs by a lot. It especially happens in cheap low tuition Euro countries. People only take up like half the work load and do other stuff on the side and delay graduation that way. It got so bad that they started changing laws to stop the 'eternal student syndrome'.

Isn't it common with German students that study alternatively and work?

Here we do our studies to the end, straight without a year off (we call it "Année Sabbatique" = Jewish reference of a year off from studies, looking new opportunities outside of school)

There was a lady at my university who had been doing roughly the same degree as me for about 7-8 years. I was confused because it's a 4 year degree and you can honestly be done in 3 if you elect to take more subjects and have high grades. Turns out she was cleverly using her degree to give herself a stable UAE visa source. Just taking 2-4 subjects per year while she worked and did other things on the side.

It's pretty impressive than he can even maintain a DYEL physique considering his schedule wallahi.
