I won’t call this a blog post because it is so very short – We will call it a Blurt for Google’s sake. In this Blurt, I just want to make one statement about colleges in this state.
Just because you go to a huge, popular Texas college rather than small and less popular Texas colleges does not make you smarter or more capable. Western Texas College is a two-year school but it preps students for better jobs right out of school and creates less debt than the other Tier One schools. So don’t act cocky if you are attending a “cool university.” Most of those places don’t get you ready for real life or prep you for anything technical or useful. Places like WTC might not have frat life or even Bachelors degrees, but they at least get you employed sooner than later.
That’s my Blurt rant for today – I attended a large university myself and am convinced that it was a racket designed to take my money and teach me little practical knowledge. That might have been my fault. But, if I had a kid I’d send him or her to a place like WTC over where I went.
Why am I saying all this? What do I care? I just get sick of the bigger school students thinking themselves superior because they were able to get into a school that makes them pay a lot of money to sit through boring lectures and write busy work essays.
That’s all. I will return to my cave and say little more except this: I can’t wait for the future! What about you?
