Hey bro I got my MA in comm and leader studies at Gonzaga and it bumped me up to a senior account exec job at a marketing firm in Portland. I'm making big fuckin' bucks for a 28 year old.

I laugh when people turn their nose up at non-STEM. If you've got people skills and know how to get under peoples' skin in a positive way, the money is endless.

Pretty much this

Communications is the major that you switch to when you start failing architecture/engineering/statistics etc. It's the easiest degree you can get that isn't fucking coloring or history.

"The major in Communication Studies is an interdisciplinary curriculum leading to a Bachelor of Arts degree. It seeks to provide students with a comprehensive knowledge of the nature of human communication, the symbol systems by which it functions, the environments in which it occurs, its media, and its effects."

Essentially a bullshit degree. Right up there with other useless soft sciences like Psychology and Sociology.

But that sounds quite useful since he's playing in the NFL. He's going to retire and get a commentating or pundit job, if he needs to work at all.

Over here you do one internship a year from 14-18 and then you do pretty much what you want, aside from the conscription.

University attendance is low here but we still have a very organised and productive workforce. Most of our engineers, for example, leave school at 19 then work for several years before going to do a degree.

There's a huge power gap in the U.S. between Yale, Princeton, and Harvard, and every school after.

Start finding them. Have your friends make fake yelp reviews, accept shit tier DUI, traffic tickets, take cases from other lawyers that don't want to and give them a 30% cut, partner with a bunch of other young lawyers, pass out business cards, get advertisment.

>>64826994

I have a feeling most of the people in this thread are high schoolers who think they're going to get into a top 10 school no problem and are bragging ahead of time of what they think will be their future school.

Trust me, I went to one of the best high schools in the country. Everyone there would talk daily about how they were "trying to decide between Harvard or Stanford, or maybe Princeton too" as if it were fucking guaranteed.

In a class of 200 students, literally TWO of them got into schools ranked in the top 15. I will never forget the fucking jubilation that went through me when all those elitist fuckfaces got their poor little dreams crushed and had to settle for the state university instead. They were literally CRYING at my lunch table. It was
incredible.
People don't fucking realize what it takes to get into those schools. They think if they ace their SATs, finish with a 4.0, join a lot of clubs, then they're in. Unless you come from a rich as fuck family, had relatives who went to that school, and have connections, your intelligence and grades alone won't do shit for you.

It's far easier to have a high GPA in graduate school than undergraduate school. Also, as everyone else is saying, Sherman got a degree in communications which is a bozo major. If Sherman had gotten the GPA he had at Cal, I'd be quite a bit more impressed. Stanford's average GPA is higher than a place like Cal and that's even accounting for purportedly smarter people at Stanford.

If the OP really wanted to point out a smart athlete who is also black, he should have used Calvin Johnson as an example. He's a great (although aging and diminishing) player and he graduated with an engineering degree from Georgia Tech. His sister (a doctor, if I remember correctly) and both of his parents are also highly accomplished people.

The internet. Just start googling. I started with Codecademy.com, but that really only gave me a small taste. Just start digging and eventually you figure out a learning process that works for you.

Im familiar with code academy. Anyother sites you would suggest?

The types of connections you can build at HYP are only superior to those you would get at Stanford in a handful of (admittedly lucrative) fields but in most STEM fields a good research prof at Stanford will provide the same quality of connections as one at HYP would.

You're missing the point dude. Just start googling and learn what works for you. Chances are the sites that I used aren't going to be helpful for you and you'll end up using something else anyways.

>>64829351
Not him, but try
Sololearn
Learncpp

>>64829435
Im not missing the point. I get what you saying. Im just asking if there is anything else you would suggest i take a look at.

That said I think vocational schools are vastly underrated and should be just as represented as college/university.

>There are large amounts of people, mainly in the English speaking world, who froth at the mouth over which degree people choose to take

My Austrian friend, your problem is that you look at 4chan and possibly reddit for your "English speaking world"

Everyone on this website is (or at least claims to be) an engineering major or another STEM major who are usually social retards and their future career earnings are all they have, so they shit on anyone who isn't an engineer or another math/science major as a fucking retard

This stuff doesn't really happen in real life at colleges

lmao what fucking retards do you hang out with?

>>64829746
The only issue with vocational school is that those interested in attending them i.e. the working class, can't both attend and work unlike university where you can schedule around work.
>>
>>64829794
A majority on 4chan are still highschoolers that can't even hack it in community college. They'll end up working at Khols or Home Depot for a good 10 years.
>>
>>64828755
Nah they probably hired the ASU person because they didn't come off like a complete aspie in their. Interview like you did because it's almost always aspies who go to UCSD

Yah but he didn't graduate with a degree in engineering, it was in construction management.
While still commendable, its not engineering.

>>64829861
But they did hire me. That makes no sense.
>>
>>64830196
Also image verification was construction vehicles.
Cool.

At least I've worked for a regional hotel chain for 5 years and moderately climbed the ladder with zero college education.

24, no degree. At least I have being a white male going for me.

It's never too late, fampai. I dropped out of college at 21. Went back at 25. In two years, I'll have a degree in a good field and employers will think I'm more mature and trustworthy because I'm not some dumbass 22 year old who never had to struggle

ITT: Non-academics who think they know anything about how academia works.

(Disclaimer: I work on the STEM side of campus, things may well be different on the non-quantitative side of things, but honestly I don't give enough of a fuck to find out)

Whole-university rankings are almost useless; the only thing that really matters is individual departments. The elite universities do tend to have higher-ranking programs *overall* but it's no guarantee.

The University of Texas is a better CS school than Harvard.
The University of Kentucky is a better pharmacy school than Harvard.

(To be fair, though, I couldn't find something quantitative that Alabama or Mississippi beat Harvard on, but there may well be something).

>>64827556

It's almost always worth it in STEM, as you get paid to do graduate work in STEM (at least, you *should*; the joke is an acceptance without financial support is a "polite rejection").

If you can't get support, it's probably not worth it.
