Anybody Here Got A Degree from a UNC-System School?

This guy—this North Carolinian—says that your alma mater is a "rubber-stamp institute where you get a degree for paying the money without actually learning anything." And just to be clear, this isn't a college rivalry thing. This guy believes that public education is for wussies.

I get mine in May

I'm going to hate to have to explain to my employer that my first-tier law school was a sham and a scam.

Oh God

I have argued with Ogre on many occasions. He DOES have half a mind and tends towards Libertarian policies instead of right-wing fascism

Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over.

Ogre's stoopid

Here is what I'm about to post.....

Hmmmmm....obviously your private school education did not pay off, or your lack of education and ability to do your own research is showing. Sorry to tell you, but 35 years ago was the date that all 16 state universities merged into a university system, not when public education at the university level was available in NC. The first state university in the country was opened in 1795(it was chartered in 1789) - The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. My excellent education from said university has allowed me to point out your ignorance and your inability to conduct basic research about your topics before writing.

In other words a state-supported education has been available in North Carolina for the past 211 years or so. Before the excellent educational oppotunities provided by UNC-Ch were available, most people were...um...ignorant, like you. If you would like to know more about the different universities in the system there's this really great thing called the internet.......

It's a good thing that you clarified:

If it had been a creative writing or philosophy degree, you really would just have been proving his point.

(That's good-natured ribbing, folks; I have a philosophy degree.)

I took some philosophy courses...

and we'll just leave it at that.

Hehe, I don't usually like to be mean, b/c I've made some pretty ignorant statements myself. That's one reason I try to research before I speak/write/comment. I realize I could have been nicer about telling the ignorant turd that he's an ignorant turd. :)

Gee

I guess the Ogre isn't going to engage me with any witty repartee. I'll go pack some more. (There are areas of my house I'm not sure I ever dusted......Maybe I shouldn't admit that in public.)

Class of 99

Double major BA in Poli Sci and Geography from THE UNC. Ogre needs to get out of the state more because a college degree means a lot in the real world, regardless of where it came from. And I believe my education was worth every penny. Granted I cant really use my degree, unless of course you count when I plan to run for political office. But I had a well rounded education and learned a lot of needless party trivia :)

No I lived in NC from 5th

No I lived in NC from 5th grade on through college. I just got tired of living in the Triangle and working for IBM. I more or less through a dart at the world and Dallas came up as a place to go. So now I work for an evil foreign transportation corporation instead :)

Well, I can now say I know at least four decent people in Texas. My mother-in-law, sister-in-law and brother-in-law are the other three.... - all good Democrats. When will you run for office?
