    Go to NYU; they took the Olsen twins, they’ll take you.

    You could go to the school your father coaches at, but their curriculum might be below your standards.

    But she doesn’t want to go to Walden – that’s the point.

    @SKJAM!

    She wants to get away from the folks!

    Ignore these people. You were switched at the hospital.

    No such luck. She’s got Boopsie’s hair and BD’s eyes.

    More to the point, Sam, you don’t have the trust fund!

    Sounds like she’s Walden-bound.

    But seriously, reach. Then go wherever you can study your chosen field, because these days, where you go isn’t half as important as what you study.

    Is Mike the only character who actually gets along with his child?

    It surely feels good to have two parents who believe in you, doesn’t it Sam?

    These days, maybe if you’ve got the wherewithal, that’s sufficient. My dad advanced a grade and graduated from HS a year younger than his classmates. After serving in WW II he applied for Yale and was denied because he came from a poor family. And then there’s Dubya…

    College/University is, nowadays, one of the WORST bargains out there. Never mind Grade Inflation rendering your Degree practicaly worthless, the PRICE has exceeded Inflation EVERY Year since the 70’s (on Average)

    Some of the more Vocationally Targeted Schools CAN be worth it in terms of getting necessary “Certifications” but the “Liberal Arts” Degrees just load you with Debt (That NOW can’t be discharged through Bankruptcy) and are WORTHLESS on the Job-Market. Read the Books at home if you want to but the Classes are usually “taught” by Teaching Assistants who are just a couple years ahead of you. AS far as “Seeing” the Big-Name Professor, don’t count on it, they’ve got “more important” things to do than yammer at Undergrads.

    (I am a BA. Degree “Holder” and child of a University Proff. and have seen the “sad story” far TOO many times. REAL WORLD experience is a FAR more reliable “investment” these days than a BA, or MA. PhD.’s are still worth it in some fields but be CAREFUL. Graduating with a Debt-Load equal to a HOUSE is hardly a good way to Start!)

    Right on, Leo Autodidact, right on! Formal education nowadays seems to be a racket. If going to school is to make one smart and get a well paying job, what’s so smart about incurring lots of debt? Unfortunately, young people don’t have the experience to know that many people who are well paid learned to manipulate others and learned to negotiate. I’ve seen all too many bosses who didn’t have the formal education credentials.
