Does anyone else feel like they've become more jaded in the past year? I used to think that school was about learning and discovery, not careerism. When people would talk about school debt, I would make inane comments like, "But I'm sure you'll be able to re-pay it back? And wasn't it worthwhile to learn?"These days, I see higher education as a scam perpetuated to bilk the middle-class of their savings and endow them with a false sense of pride. (i.e., "why . . . my son attends law school! he is something, isn't he?")
I swear I've read the same thread over fifty^fifty times (or another high, arbitrary number). Over and over and over again . . . supplements, outlines, E&E, blah blah blah. It's enough to drive a person insane.And the kicker is that, somehow, someone always comes along and says, "Dude, I have no idea what all of this is and I still did extremely well."That's it; I'm winging it. I'll read the casebook and go to class. Worse comes to worse, I'll eat my hat.
Walls, if your avatar is now a Guided By Voices reference, I think I'm going to fall over.

Despite the fact that I would no doubt be labeled a "tool" by my classmates, can anyone tell me if it could possibly be beneficial to tape record lectures?
