This was back in the early to mid 90's, so it may not be quite as relevant today, but I really could have used a mentor. I made a lot of poor choices for college courses, both in what I took, and what I didn't take. I didn't know that I would have to teach myself a lot of things, nor where to learn them.
Mentorship is probably more relevant today than it was back then given the plethora of specialties and systems that exist now.
