        So few people really understand the nature of power, and how it proliferates itself.

        universities have always been there to serve as a recruitment base for powerful political, military or private entities.

        Those who fail to get taken in, but with the brains to understand the dynamics of it all, often find their ways into lower-tiered groups such as private or public fraternities (you scratch my back, i’ll scratch yours).

        The rest of them pay 100K+ to get a paper, that says you did some learning you could have done on youtube indeed.

        It can be a great benefit, or it can be your biggest burden.

      Learning a subject and having it stick requires repeated reinforcement for the brain. If you’re one of those special autists that can breeze through it on your own, then fine, but you’re most likely not. Some semblance of structure, and having checkpoints along the way (assignments, tests, midterms, final exam) are best for most people.
      Also, as others have pointed out, if you have a question, you have no peers nor teacher to ask.

      Something not a lot of people are mentioning here: A degree shows that you can stick with something and see it through. That’s why it’s often easier to land a job with a degree (and you got the know how). You don’t even need a degree in the same field as whatever job you’re aiming for, just about any non-meme degree (gender studies, art, philosophy, etc) is good enough to improve your chances.

        I breezed through the exersices then the final test came where we were given a test which was 50% of the entire course and it was just a bunch if code and we were supposed to find bugs in it.
        Something we didnt go over at all.

      Because only the top 10% of humans are capable of teaching themselves a particular skill within a reasonable time frame. Theoretically even someone with a room temperature IQ can teach themselves any skill if they lived forever.

      Someone with 200+ IQ for example might be able to teach themselves to program C++ at a profitable level in just a few months and already on their way to making 6 figure salary/profit without a degree.

      Someone with an average IQ trying to accomplish the same thing will take a few years at best and someone with a below average IQ will take 10+ years.

      So what ends up happening is most people don’t see results in a reasonable time frame and life happens (kids/marriage/debt) and they’re forced to completely give up or go to college where they’ll have their hand held every step of the way making it possible aquire that skill exponentially faster than they would alone.

      It’s extremely unlikely you have a 200+ IQ and realistically you probably hover somewhere around the average ~100 IQ range so it’s all a gamble because either:

      A) College can teach you a particular skill faster.
      or
      B) You can teach yourself a particular skill faster than College can.

      Probably A, the only way to know for sure is to take the mesa IQ test (ie not internet bullshit tests).

      normal people think its impossible to self learn a skill which isnt drawing, playing an instrument or learning languages (they prefer having a teacher though). and they lack the discipline to learn any skill they think is attainable through selflearing, which is why they always talk about "i want to learn this" instead of "i am learning this"

      If you think about it logically colleges are basically institutions to help people with a ~100 IQ master a particular skill in a fixed time frame. To a highly gifted person they’re going to be the biggest waste of time in their life as they curb stomp their tests after cramming for a only a single night with the rest of their time spent playing video gays and reading mangoes. The harsh truth is we’re not all born the same and most of us aren’t going to able to teach ourselves skill in a reasonable time frame. We’re not going to live forever and when life happens it forces us to make sacrifices.

          this, apparently there’s more geniuses than we see, but most of them fail for different reasons, the main one is not working hard enough (usually after being complimented as a child too much, they start to think they can do anything with a minimal effort)

      University has always been about the social experience and exploration. However, technical universities in the US have become depressing, asocial, pressure-cooker environments. At this point I am not sure whether it is better to just teach yourself online or do a degree.

      I am currently TA at a prestigious technical university and I feel like I am just teaching sheltered bugmen. It genuinely depresses me.I am glad I was able to complete university in Europe before all of this racing to the bottom started.

      Immersion in the academic environment can give you all of those things, even if you are middling. If you truly are the 0.01% at the high tail of the distribution, you could probably do it alone, but then you could also do it at a university and leverage the above.

      You go to university to meet people that will help you get a job or provide better connections later in life, for certifications that will make a job more likely to hire you, and to take classes and learn things you otherwise wouldn’t have chosen on your own.

      If you go just to attend the direct classes and autistically grind your degree you’ve unironically failed university.

        You go to uni to befriend as many people as possible, and most of them will end up working in your same field, some of them in nice companies, so you can ask them to vouch for you.

      The whole point is to get into one of the top 10 universities in the usa. Once there, you meet fellow wunderkinds, then syngeristic networking magic may happen if you’re not too autistic. Nobody cares much about your grades, just grad w a degree in something respectably stem. Lofe has been easy street w jobs and money thrown at me my whole life. I’m retired at 50 and set for life.

      Tl;dr go to a top ivy school & you’re set.

      For better or worse, the piece of paper. I’m not saying this is a bad thing or a good thing, but that’s the way it is.

      If you don’t care about the degree itself and you’re only interested in the actual knowledge, then not much, really. Nowadays, almost everything you can learn in college can be learned just fine outside of college, this is especially true for CS.
      Whoever claims otherwise is a delusional freshman.

      Most people don’t have the business inclination to make use of self-learned skills. A degree “guarantees” a certain level of skill/knowledge/etc, and the institution’s reputation sets the level of it. A self taught person has to have a number of successful large projects or enterprises to be thought of as having the needed skills.
      Even after that, an employer will still think “why should I hire someone who can employ themselves and doesn’t need me?”

      In short: to be able to teach yourself, you need to be able to sell and manage yourself too.

      I know people going for solely that, and taking degrees like graphic design. Almost £30k+ over 3 years

        The "experience" and "connections" are enormously overrated, ignore those who emphasize them. It’s mostly just nobodies meeting nobodies. Unless you make actual friends, you’ll likely lose contact and forget everyone else and not even miss them one bit.
        I suspect that those who insist they are that important didn’t actually go to college and they are just speaking from what they think it’s like from movies.

        Yes, you may be lucky and befriend that one guy who happens to be the son of an important CEO, but the chances of this happening are low. And even if it does happen, don’t make the mistake of believing that nepotism trumps everything on its own. Yes, it does matter, a lot. But if you are an incompetent idiot, you’ll lose every time to a literally who who happens to be a genius and can prove it.

        The one and only thing you should focus on while at university is the degree, nothing else. Even actual learning comes second, since sadly not all classes are all that useful or well structured.

        You can get the same experience for free by networking with druggie kids who got sent to alternative ed. I went to a University close to home so I hung out with the same people from high school, who most would consider losers. I didn’t hang out with a single person from Uni, they were all stuck up.

        yes it is.
        What are social skills good for?
        > having access to new opportunities
        > negotiating salary
        > easily making new friends
        > easily acquiring sexual partners/ keeping them
        > having an upper hand in deals.
        inb4 i am not a businness man. everything is a deal in life. you just don’t know it.

        Social skill is the most important skill of all. even money sometimes can’t compare to it. technical skill can be learned from home. social skill require you to be physically next to a person. Which is very hard to come by when you think about it.
        Why is you regress socially when you enter the workforce, because nobody has the time to just be social like they do in their early 20’s.

        Zoomers are so freaking trash socially. If you put some effort things can be better for you in the future. In the kingdom of blind, a one eye man is king.

      2021 UNI SURVIVAL GUIDE

      WHY GO TO UNI?
      REASONS
      1. get a bachelors degree in high demand fields
      2. having the flexibility of taking a masters later on in life.
      getting a online masters is piss easy, and magnet for hr roasties.
      3. having 4 years of blocked section of your life in which you can study.
      scrotebrains waste this time by gaYMINg or being a degen.
      or building projects in the mean time.
      4. Networking with
      fellow students
      professors
      industry people that might come to your student fair or someshit.
      5. Internships are easy to get if you are IN college and have good GPA
      GOOD GPA IS ANYTHING OVER 3.5
      OK GPA IS ANYTHING OVER 3
      anything below YOU are bonked and should blame yourself for freaking your future self.
      6. LOANS and grants that can be used for tuition and board.
      working a wagie job out of high school just to survive is scrotebraination.
      If utilized properly you woun’t be in a lot of debt.
      acceptable level of debt after UNI <= 40k.

      7. BEST WAY TO FIND A WIFE.
      tinder sucks
      church is full of single moms and tatooted whores.
      finding your long term partner is college is the right way to do dating.
      EVERYTHING ELSE IS A freaking WASTE OF TIME.
      BIGGER POOL OF FEMALES THAN AT ANY POINT OF YOUR LIFE.
      AND HIGHER QUALITY oF WOMEN TOO>
      young, educated and single(no kids)
      if you they don’t want you in college because you are creepy, ugly w/e.
      now is the best time to level up.
      physically (gym)
      personality (join social clubs, that forces you to be social)
      by the time you done with college and after first year of working you are prime dating material.
      >>BUT IT IS UNFAIR BITCHES have it easy.
      it is how things are you can be a loser and visit /r9k/ during college or make an investment in yourself.
      8. FINDING FRIENDS
      9. FINDING AND BROADENing interests.
      fuck travelling other expensive shit.

        CONS
        1. shit degree -> fuck up your life
        2. out of state college -> huge debt
        3. stay in shitty toxic relationship ->
        stunted personal development
        wasting time
        potentialy missing out on a good match.
        4. if you are depressed or have mental condition
        pause college and get it fixed.
        5. fuck weed and only socially drink.

        >>BUT I AM AUTO DIDACT, going to classes is a waste of time.
        in reality you are going to learn everything in on your own anyways. You go to class.
        0. TO TALK TO OTHER PEOPLE
        prof, dudes and chicks
        1. for the habit, because you will scrotebrain slob if you don’t
        2. getting assignments
        3. also for the lecture (MOST OF THE TIME IS SHIT)
        if shit -> ignore scrotebrain professor and study on your own.
        if good -> augment your study with lecture.

        HUMANS ARE SOCIAL CREATURES, AND THIS IS THE BEST WAY WE HAVE CURRENTLY TO GET EDUCATED. ONLINE SCHOOL IS A SCAM. you probably getting 10% of what you paid for.
        ANY of the shit does not apply to outliers.
        >INB4 i am one.
        no you are not. accepting your mediocre and min /maxing can often times help you achieve great things.
        >ALSO if you poor as fuck, come from a shitter family, have a drug problem. have a kid etc etc
        things are going to be harder for you.

      The people who can benefit most from college are disciplined and can effectively self motivate. The people who really succeed in college could get the same result by reading textbooks or watching online lectures. They have the discipline and skills for it.
      Therefore college must offer something that books and videos can’t to those people or they must target a different demographic. In practice its both. Good students participate in independent studies and do research with their professors. Mediocre students, the people who treat college like high school+, just attend classes and make do. Colleges are filled with this type of person because they bring in money and also because it’s hard to sort out the disciplined and hardworking from the intelligent but lazy using GPA and standardized tests. Basically college is like public school, only a small percentage of students take full advantage of it.

      I’m the depute head of an IT team of around 20 employees or so, and when we’re interviewing, nothing matters, except experience + personality
      We don’t care about your school, your college, your degree, or you, really.
      We want to know if you can write powershell to stand up AVD instances in Azure.
      We want to know if you can debug the mission critical Exchange 2007 server in the basement.
      We want to know that you’re not a sperg.
      We already think that you either have, or can be taught, the technical skills.
      We’re all extremely busy and wouldn’t waste our time interviewing candidates we though lacked the technical aptitude.
      The interview is to see if you were bullpooping on the resume and to see how well you fit in.
      I don’t even look at the ‘education’ section.

      school is a good goy generator and a money scam; companies want good goys so you gotta get the paper that signals to them you are a broken soul who can handle being a slave
      if you think school is about learning you are underage or below 100 IQ and will soon be replaced by a 3rd worlder who can’t turn on a pc but knows how to get the paper (aka cheat and lie) and live like an insect; learning is a tertiary side effect at best in these institutions and they know it, hence why they can release huge stores of info and it doesn’t hurt them, they are useless scammers and middlemen who peddle cheap status and hollow prestige to empty headed teenagers and propagandized parents in exchange for what effectively amounts to a checkbox on your resume that they themselves have ensured you need through generations of conditioning
