    Kid, unless you’re pursuing a degree in Math or the Sciences, just pick the cheapest, fastest diploma mill you can find.

    Kid, choose the best school that is teaching your major interest. Forget the Community College unless you want trade training. Most CC credits will not transfer to a legitimate four year program.

    If, for instance, you want to study medieval history and intend to teach; goto SUNY NY and take your freshman history classes from Lorraine Fuller. It would not be a mistake to take your Masters and Doctorate at Syracuse University.

    I took my baccalaureate in physics from Harvard, masters in electrical engineering from MIT and my doctorate in computer science from UC Berkeley. I do not regret a penny I spent on my education; in fact I and the world profited well from my investment. Both of my wives earned doctorates and also have blessed their community and themselves with the fruits of their learning.

    No, that’s waaay over the top of cluelessness!

    ““In most books, the I, or first person, is omitted; in this it will be retained; that, in respect to egotism, is the main difference. We commonly do not remember that it is, after all, always the first person that is speaking. I should not talk so much about myself if there were anybody else whom I knew as well. Unfortunately, I am confined to this theme by the narrowness of my experience.” — H.D.T.

    Henry was right, of course. There are only two kinds of speakers or writers in this regard: those who admit that they are talking about themselves (their thoughts, opinions, knowledge, and experiences) and those who pretend they are not. The former are more honest, the latter are sometimes more modest, but sometimes are simply more pretentious.

    I was a fool too.

    And then spend the rest of your life griping about how the world isn’t beating a path to your door to hire you, don’t forget that part.

    “Do the math” is presumably an in-joke about the variable aging of Doonesbury characters. Sam (this is Sam, yes?) was born in 1992, so if you “do the math” she is getting to the end of college.

    Just saying “I” does not make a person more honest as I was telling Nelson Mandella last year. He was checking in on me regarding my secret mission to Mars in which I drove off the Green Martians prior to their invasion of Earth.
    .
    See what I mean?
    Not all of the above is true despite a liberal sprinkling of "I"s. (It was actually the Red Martians.)

    Too bad that, after all that education, you say something as incorrect as, “Most CC credits will not transfer to a legitimate four year program.” On the contrary, general education credits at every CC I’ve known transfer to four-year institutions. Claiming otherwise is more snobbish than it is accurate, as is your implicit and elitist claim that unless you attend only a select few schools, you might as well not bother going to college. And, by the way, there is no Lorraine Fuller listed on the faculty at SUNY, and there is no “SUNY NY” campus. Maybe they should have taught you to Google better at one of your fine schools.
