That is true, but unless it is in some fake subject like gender studies anyone who went to UPENN is at least book smart in their subject area.The reverse is rarely true though. If someone does not have a university degree they are typically not intelligent. It is kind of a "necessary but not sufficient condition"
@Matthew2222 I 100% disagree. There are a lot of amazing minds out there that never got the chance to go to University perhaps because of family life or maybe they didn't have enough money to do it. If you look at the stats from American universities, the decision to actually go to university is not necessarily the smartest.
Actually it is. Outcomes for those who do not get a 4 year degree are unequivocally worse than those that do. And don't try the "did not have the chance" card, if someone is smart enough they will have no issue getting a full ride at a respectable university. If you can't do that it is because you just do not have the intelligence.
@Matthew2222 I'm sure anyone that holds a license for an accredited trade such as a gas fitter would disagree. They make more money, faster and carry less debt throughout their lifetime. They also have little to no risk of being replaced by a computer program, robot or being downsized.
