MFW I could never afford to go to either.
One thing i dont get is how there are supposed good universities and not so good ones. I cant think of a way that would be checked. and even if there are some differences in quality, it should never be enough to justify certain universities fame, or extremely high tuition costs.
It all seems like a scam to me.
It's the same reason that there are different classes of people (not economically speaking, I mean socially) such as us robots, the wizards, the normies, the chads, the stacies, etc.
There's a standard set by Ivy League schools, such as Brown and Dartmouth, such as both of them having an acceptance rate below 20%, and only accepting exceptional students. Places like this become this way because of the original foundation and shit.
So its all about going to famous universities so that you mingle with the upper class? Does sound like its worth a lifetime of debt.
You will learn the same stuff in literally any college, especially in the first few years.
Go to the place where you think you'll get a job. fuck the typical bullshit about learning shit. the anons are right: it's a business. the days have passed when it was about education. that was way back during ancient greece, where people were content with their careers and learning was a hobby, a means of existing through widening your scope of perception. I'd like to think that that spirit had its fate set out with the library of Alexandria. Go to the place that has the best track record for students getting fat stacks after. that's the most important thing. fuck literally everything else and everyone else. I'm just doing the minimum amount of work needed to get some job that pays a medium salary, something that I can work up to increase. nowadays, nothing else matters. anyone trying to tell you otherwise is not your friend.
