I think that people are unbelievably mean AND rude to those without a University degree, or people like myself who don't go to prestigious Universities.

Many successful people did not go to college or dropped out of college because they could make money in the real world i. e. owning their own business. The key is what you do with that education. I don't look down on people who don't go to college; I make fun of those who go and get an art degree.1

I agree with you. I never once thought a person deserves more respect than another simply due to accomplishments and formal education status. Respect is earned just as much by being a good person. I think it's natural to give a respect to a hard-earned -accomplishment but in my opinion, it should be moreso due to the "hard-earned" feature moreso than the accomplishment itself. But it's true, sometimes that respect comes out of intimidation. It's human to feel some uncontrolled intimidation or admiration for something grand like a strikingly beautiful person or a really wealthy self made billionaire.
My own father does this a lot, where he gives more value to educated people... and he ranks value in various degrees. It's a very shallow feature about him, but I know he has a special respect for education because it helped him rise up from poverty in his homeland. Still, I wish he was more respectful to everyone equally. Hard work in my opinion is one of the most admirable, respectable features out there... whether you're a mail man or famous movie producer.0
