Is school the only way for SE?

I am learning software engineering on my own, without actually going to school. Is learning on my own a waste of time? And is school the only way? Do you know any self-taught people in who work in the tech industry in general?

I have a associates degree in networking from a community college. I work at Amazon now making $270k TC. I’d say that you don’t need a CS degree in this field.
