I've always thought that most people don't belong in college. They treat it like vocational/trade school, and it's not. They don't do that in Europe. I went to college because I like learning, and I knew that whatever I ended up in: teaching/research/proffessional degree I would NEED a degree.
If you don't NEED a degree to do something that makes you happy, don't go to college. And stop dumbing it down for the rest of us. sheeesh.
PS: same thing seems to be true for law school. It is not a trade school for lawyers.
i agree with this 100%. it is definitely not the consensus though - especially the postscript.
