I doubt you even know what a university stands for.
Why are you being so arrogant?
I could argue about universities in the United States with you, but you have already stupidly dismissed a young lady that I know for a fact knows so much more about universities than you. You should listen to her.
@Red_Arrow thank you sir. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated. When I become the CZAR of the United States, actually the czarina you will have a position in my cabinet when I get horny
Hmmm. I can think of a few desirable positions. :-)
@Red_Arrow I will gladly assume all those positions but you have to remember that at the same time we must be attempting to achieve peace in the Middle East in the Ukraine and a lot of other place. This puts pressure on me. You will have to really be ready at all times to relieve my stress
My stress reliever stands at attention awaiting your orders.

Yeah, that's what I mentioned in other posts. It's only true for specifically engineering (electrical, aero, mech, and petro) and medicine.
To an extent.
Of course to an extent, but in the UK it's statistically known that a man or woman with a degree will typically (not always) earn more than a man or woman without a degree.
I lived in the UK, and that's not really true.
Well that's at odds with the office for national statistics.
I agree with you to an extent.
They all promote the same crap, if they didn't it would defeat their purpose for existence.
Nah but if you buy into that "crap" SOME universities promote you should probably not be there in the first place.
What do you mean "nah", how in the hell do you suppose they promote their business anyways? ! I never said I believed that lie, I was just asking a question to see others opinions.
Thing is they don't need to promote them, it's the high paid jobs that require degrees that do that for them.
That's not true at all. Example: B. S Electrical engineering, average starting salary is $75k (nice salary)B. A Social work, average starting salary is $33k (EXTREMELY LOW)Someone with only a HS education working in sales, is making about $80k because of his performance. A degree is not a requirement for a good paying job, maybe engineering yes, but even then they still make exceptions.
Right, a degree is only a requirement for MOST good paying jobs.
I know the statement is a lie, I just wanted to hear others opinions.
Tomatoe, tomato... still promote the same crap.
Most people generally have not only a greater CHANCE of success but the facts are that college educated individuals earn more.
That only applies to medical school graduates, who become physicians. And yet there are still business owners who have no college education, and are still making 6X more than a specialized physician.
No. It does not apply only to physicians. In 2015, adults with bachelor's degrees took home more than those with high school diplomas. Degree holders earned $48,500 a year, while diploma holders earned $23,900.Studies have proven time and again that college-educated workers often earn more than those with only high school diplomas. 3.bp.blogspot.com/.../PDV-lifetime-earnings.png
Real life examples...B. S Degree Engineers graduate, they make an average of $75k for starting salary (NICE PAY)B. A Degree in Social Work, the starting salary is $33k (VERY VERY VERY VERY LOW)A man with just a HS education working in sales, making $80k+ because of his performance.
There will always be exceptions to the rule but the facts are the facts. After all Bill Gates dropped out of college. You can argue until you are blue in the face, you can google a thousand different studies. I've found that arguing with ignorance is futile so I'll just say good luck with whatever you choose. It's your life.
Some do, but they fall under EE, ME, PE, AE, and Medicine.
No, if there are no need for jobs a degree won't do shit.The need for lawyers is in decline here because there are too many jobless law students.Just one example, and I'm sure it happens to many other majors.
There will ALWAYS be jobs for Engineers and Doctors.
Not promoting that would defeat the purpose for their existence.
Those are two different statements. They can promote education without saying they guarantee success.
