I'm writing the cheques to App State so Ive got a pretty good idea of what it costs. With a dorm room, a parking pass, and the big meal plan my daughter would have to be in school for 9 years to hit 100k.

So part of the $23,000 a year goes into being able to hang out with a bunch of douche bags and get high and/or drunk all day? With the distinct hope of crushing some tail in the process?


I don't understand how some people think going to college is a negative thing. I wouldn't be able to pursue any job in my field (architecture) if I wasn't in college. Sure you can risk not going and experiencing success in a general business or the military, but it doesn't make college a pointless thing for "douchebags" as some would say. Is there something wrong with getting laid as much as possible in the prime of your life? Or having as much fun as you can while you are studying your ass off at an institution that will help you network, giving yourself connections that can benefit you at multiple levels, not just financially.

I first went to a college in the deep south, joined a frat, yet hated the education...so I worked my ass off and got into the number one program in the nation in my field at a different school. I got 4 job offers right now with the given economy, so don't tell me its bullsh*t. Your blinding yourself if you don't see the positives of the college experience.

:D


I wouldn't trade college for nothing in the fuging world. It was a blast. The booze, drugs, girls, sex, better than being a rock star.


Well, if that is all that you got out of college, it certainly explains the lack of cognitive ability expressed in the majority of your posts.:ciappa:

The term cognition (Latin: cognoscere, "to know", "to conceptualize" or "to recognize") refers to a faculty for the processing of information, applying knowledge, and changing preferences. Cognition, or cognitive processes, can be natural or artificial, conscious or unconscious

Well, we already knew that you knew how to use a search engine on the internet. Now we all know that you know how to copy and paste.

Good for you.....

My degree in English landed me a teaching job. Better than the restaurant industry which I worked for half the pay I make now and put up w/ a bunch of bullshyte from the public.



College paid off for me. If it's for you, go for it; if college (or collage) isn't your thing, then don't go.


I could never teach. I don't have the patience to teach. I do Major Account Sales in the Financial sector, which is totally unrelated to my degree. I do have the best vocabulary, though. :lol: That comes in handy when trying to sell an account...

Thats all well and good. But take a teacher for example. It doesnt make sense to go to a 4 years to college for a job that pays $32,000 a year. Doctors, lawyers and engineers I can understand. If a degree in a field doesnt start you off in the high $40,000 to me it doesnt make sense to go for 4 years. The requirements for degrees is what gets me. Should be straight learning for that degree without any other classes. You could get the education you need for that field in lesser time.
