You really shouldn’t need to go to “college” to be a nurse, attorney, doctor or an accountant. You should have to go somewhere where they specifically teach you to be those things.Frankly, college is mostly a scam if we are all being serious. Unless you’re a nurse, attorney, doctor, accountant, etc the whole experience is about learning to be an adult, networking, and multitasking without any actual adult supervision. The important stuff you learn on the job later for 90% of the graduating class of most colleges and most degree paths. Behind the military industrial complex and pharmaceuticals, higher education is probably the next highest level boondoggle in America…
I heard on the radio that the new USN&WR rankings are now ruled by "outcomes" of a student's attendance at the school for 4 years and their post-school employment. It doesn't seem to be as clearly academically based as most believe and likely has a little woke-driven component.
The biggest complaint I hear from TCU students today, is that TCU is "over enrolled" Frustrations are rampant that students cannot get the classes they need toward their degree plans. Sounds like money before matter. Probably why they dropped.
