I really don't understand why people that attend college are so arrogant and snobbish towards people that are not in college.
This generalization that people that attend college are arrogant and snobbish is equally as ignorant as college students generalizing those who don't go to college are dumb.
Not all college students are arrogant and snobbish, but some are.
Not all people who don't go to college are dumb, but some are.
get good grades study hard and you won't know how to think because they've brainwashed you to think their way. I don't know why you are all under the impression that a corporation will not hire you because you don't have a degree. They don't care if you have a degree, they want you to be able to think and have passion for what you are doing. IF they do care whether you have a degree or not, then that's not an organization that you should be working for to begin with.
The point of college is to help you learn how to think. Thats the point. To challenge your ideas and beliefs and make you re-evaluate. And I'm under the impression that a corporation will not hire me because I don't have a degree because my mother works in Human Resources (the people that hire you in major corporations) and I know that not only is it almost a requirement to have a college degree, but nowadays you need a college degree specializing in the field your applying for and an internship. TBH having a college degree gives you a step up in the corporate business world, without one you have no PROOF that you know what you're doing. You can fake passion and if you're able to think but unable to comprehend basic concepts needed for the workload, you won't get the job. Ofcourse college isn't for everyone, but then you have to understand that if college isn't for you, then the jobs that require a college degree aren't for you either.
