Is having $100k during undergrad years considered above average? Noticed that there are relatively a number of NTU undergrads with over 100k in net worth. Most of them are self made?

What are some ways undergrads can grow $100k?

This is such a clickbaity question. It is obviously looking to make people feel insecure about their financial status. You don't need to compare your financial status or goals with other people.

That said, there are many avenues to increase your net worth, both as a student, and after graduating. These including investing, having a side hustle, and monetising your skills.

But accumulating wealth and assets are all just means to an end. Ultimately, you should focus on what you want in life and then work backwards for how much you'll need to achieve that :)

For those without savings/income from the period before university, it is likely that their net worth will be in the negative range. That being said, there's no need to compare with others.

No, I don't think it is the average and it's probably the minority. I would believe that as undergraduate, even for guys who have saved up during army, most of us would not have been able to hit that net worth just yet.

There’s no need to compare at all. Different people have different background. It’s quite unhealthy to be comparing your wealth with others. Try to work towards your own financial goals and not be affected by others.

Some people might be in debt because of their family situation and some might receive large amount of money from inheritance. Everyone is different...

Personally, I'm in NS now, and the people I know are around 20-23 years old. I would say there are some people with net worth of over $100k, and these are people who made their own money through their own business/trading / other means.

Even though there are some people with a net worth of $100k, this definitely does not apply to the majority.

No. 100k as an undergrad I think is considered a minority. You must have worked pretty hard. Good work man!

Why does anyone who has $100k matters to you?

What does growing $100k means to you?

If you think growing $100k defines you life, I feel sorry for you.

I'm sure many of kids who have $100k are insecure.

BUT

Once you've over come your identity crisis.

That you're enough and you're loved.

Ahh, this is where you'd learn how to make millions!

All the best!
