Why go to college in the US to get a degree? In India you can buy a degree, come to the USA and wing it until you're found out and have to move on.

Ivy schools what ever it takes to make sure everyone gets awesome grades just to look better than everyone else. I wouldn't be surprised if they had professors tell the students the answers during exam time.

The real scandal about college admissions is how certified morons like George W. Bush graduate from elite schools like Yale. It’s a class thing. If you’ve got the name and the money, they’ll open the door for you.

My father was an accountant. I have firsthand knowledge that rich people are dumb af. There might be SOME with intelligence, but they certainly were not represented well in Mid- Missouri from the 70s- 90s. Now, I'm in East Tennessee, and it's a sea of stupid, unwed, knocked up baptists.

Oh, and trying to say that college is bad, while using a sentence that would not pass a 5th grade English class, is not the best way. No one expects college-level writing on USvid, but damn, at least try a little.

No, there's not, because that's not true at all. College used to mske getting a good paying job much easier. But there are multiple reasons why it doesn't help as much now, not just one. One of the biggest reasons is people have gotten lazier and a lot more people are picking the degrees that give them the easiest jobs. If you start a 4 year degree in something that already has 30,000 people graduating over the 4 years you're taking it, and the projected total number of jobs in fields that use that degree is only 23,000, you're screwed, and it's NOT the fault of the college. And yes, while the numbers vary, that example I gave is extremely common. Why people take courses that already have more people than the number of jobs available, and then bitch about not being able to find a job is beyond me.

+Studio Guy Exactly! It's a completely different mode of thinking.. There's a reason why the richest people on the planet are almost all high school or college dropouts. Very few jobs require you to have a college degree, and in some cases (like the tech field), degrees are actually kind of frowned upon. My brother is a coder and doesn't have a degree.. He's had 3-4 different jobs now where he interviewed against 10+ other candidates that all had degrees.. He was the only one they hired each time. Lots of tech jobs want people who are passionate and self-taught.. Self-teaching shows more of an ambition than someone who sat in a classroom for 4 years that expects that piece of paper to waltz them into a job - most of which only went to college because they were too scared to enter the real world yet anyways.

When it comes to hiring writers and video editors for our channel, I won't hire someone with a degree in that field. Made that mistake twice. Both times the employees were clueless, had a chip on their shoulders and massively entitled. The people who don't have degrees are often times the hardest workers with something to prove.

To be fair Bill, yes he was a great sportsman but he stabbed two human beings to death.
Myth Detector
Why do people assume it's harder at a high ranked University? It's not a different exam. A BA in English at Harvard is the same exam as a BA in English from another University. The better University has their pick of the teachers and better teaching resources. It's the equivalent of having the best tutor. If anything it's easier to get a good grade at a better university.

Pay It Forward
If someone donates $100,000 to a college, their own children should be admitted! There are plenty of colleges that those "less fortunate" can attend. In fact, if all the rich children went to the same college, then the "less fortunate children" would be getting a better education elsewhere.
juzek1958 2 days ago
Bill Burr nailed it! I graduated from a very tough state university that had an open admission policy and a very high failure rate. It provided an excellent education. The problem was how the stats looked on paper. So with some marketing strategy, the board decided to raise admission standards to those of ivy league schools but dumbed down the curriculum for a higher graduation rate. This resulted in some impressive stats but with a trade-off of graduates receiving a substandard education. At least students have a "ball" while they are matriculating.

Conan has definitely been the only late night talk show that's any good in a long time, though these shows are really better in small digestible bites as opposed to sitting down and watching an entire episode, as proven by the massive success of youtube channels like fallon's, kimmel's, etc.

A friend of my family got accolades like crazy for math in high school, wrote a book on solving the rubik's cube as a junior (early 80s), and attended MIT. He went from being a top student in the entire state of California to being a middle-of-the-pack student in college. He busted his butt for average grades in college and described how dumb he felt among his classmates. I really think it depends on the school and program of study. I have friends who worked hard to transfer to UC Berkeley from junior college. They got in on a non-competitive program and then did what they had to in order to declare the major they really wanted from a competitive department. The curriculum was so intense that cheating was rampant and an open secret. I hate knowing about it even today. One of them was a student of mine (i tutored calculus in college). She would drive to my house, pick me up, and feed me food and alcohol in between intense study sessions. She managed to get honors and didn't even write her honors thesis, but paid a grad student to do it for her. To this day, whenever she attempts to invoke the logical fallacy of authority (well I went to Berkeley) during our political debates, i counter about her open cheating and admitted shortcuts throughout her college career.

It isn't... Unless you pick something obscure like Social Science...what's different about hard math and quantitative science? As opposed to a Community College? It's all the same formulas and algorithms in the book. Some professors might have a better grasp on a particular chapter or have a better way of explaining the nuances of a certain topic, but it's all on you to understand whats presented. If you put in the time... you'll understand everything.

The part about acceptance being difficult, is true for some of the schools. But the schools with lower acceptance rates have higher graduation rates. Schools like my public college that accept over 70% of applicants, have terrible graduation rates. I don't know what the reasons are - perhaps because it is so expensive to go to USC, UCLA, Harvard, Stanford, that people are unlikely to quit. Or maybe it is good to not accept everyone, so that they don't waste their own time and money like they did at my kinder college. But there is a lot of data out there, that will challenge everyone's own biases about college. The only truth I was given about college attendance, was when the dean told everyone to look to the person on your left, then the person on your right, and said "those 2 people will not be here anymore by the end of the first year". That was true for my school, but doesn't appear to be true for the more selective universities.

Conan saying Harvard was as easy as any other college. Meanwhile students at UC Berkeley's College of Engineering are struggling to stay afloat. I'm pretty sure all this talk of "college is just an expensive babysitting service" doesn't really factor in the science and engineering degrees.
