Her specification, and thus your original specification, is that she thought someone who went to an Ivy League school should be able to get a job. The statistic you cite to "support" your case is a sample of all college grads, not the best-quality Ivy League grads who should have much, much better chances than your average grad, and finding a job at all versus finding a job in your chosen field.
If you're not picking up on things like that, maybe you should go to college.
I didn't figure you'd be dumb enough to think there are zero unemployed ivy league graduates out of that 60%, so the only problem I have is I gave you too much credit. Once a troll always a troll.
Who said it was only one study? You need to wake up and pay attention. In any case, between Econ Nobel winner who specializes in labor and works with actual nation-wide data (we had fairly strict privacy protocols put in place as we worked with Census data which had been stripped of identifying characteristics) and random Internet Tough Guy who never finished college who just leads out with quips and smilies, I'm taking the Nobel winner 7 days a week and twice on Sunday.
And you need to get out of my thread. You came in here, added nothing, and insulted those who were discussing something.
Glad to hear your man is such a great guy.
People who have looked at it for a profession have decided that, on average, it is a good investment. It may not be a good investment for all. But if you're 18 years old and not sure, going to college is the positive value option.
The underlined is what I've been saying. Now that you've proven that for me, you know where the door is.
"Reality" isn't for only the top what, 5% (random guess)? We all have to live in the real world, some just figure it out later than others.
Maybe you should talk to this guy.Madison wrote:I've extended the invite many times and I'll do it again. You want to see the real world, come on down. First beer is on me.
Nah, no beer for you, but I guess I'd let you drink my urine if you really want to.
