The reputation of the school plays a role to some degree in how easy it is to get a job. Since some universities are known for producing top-knotch students in whichever area is in focus at that institution, employers will assume that since you were able to get in and complete your degree, picking you wouldn't be a bad choice. Usually when a school is more prestigious, their endowment of money is a hefty amount, which would lead you to believe that the latest, greatest techniques and technologies are being implemented and taught there. Looking at this from economic perspective, hiring those with more training and schooling in what's new would be more time efficient and cost-effective.

It really don't matter what university you are attending and graduating from at all..Because my friend he didn't even graduated college, and his making 3 thousands or more (depending if he gets customers) a month, and he only go around installing cables into people homes.There a lot of jobs where you can just go training for a day, and get paid 20 dollars per hour. And it does not require any college at all..

Just because you have degree does not mean its easy to get a job because that piece of paper only give you a edge...Its all based on your work ethnic and your experience and the right connection with people..My other friend family owns a business and right after high school he just went to work and his making bank now..

Only advantage to getting into a high class university are the connections you gain by going to that certain university. Which in the end results in a higher paying job/getting into a career that you want.

First bold contradicts your whole first comment.

Second Bold: You do understand thats one of the most important things you need to get into a high paying job right? Normally in a high class university there are plenty of rich kids with parents who are all successful. Befriend them, know their parents, ask for a job or a reference and bingo.

So your friend works for his family? Is that what you're saying?

3,000 x 12 = 36,000 a year if hes getting customers every month. LOL. Your friend makes about the same wage as a cop or a teacher. Which isn't that much. You must be incredibly young to believe that 3,000 dollars a month is a lot of money.

As long as its not a community college it doesn't matter. You will just have an easier time getting a job if you went to a high class well known college.


Not to nitpick but what is wrong with going to a community college? I go to one, not because I could not get into a better one ( I was accepted to 4 ) but because its all my family can afford at this time and its close to home





ouch.. well sorry to burst ur bubble but comminty colleges are looked down upon. because usually the ghetto, posers, losers, dumb people, and the people that act ghetto/gangster end up in a community college. with a gpa of less than 3.5 with SAT scores less than 1500/2400. basically below average people. so when people see ur resume, they will immediately label you as below than average and will replace you with someone who went ivy. but hey it doesnt mean u wont get a good education or a ferrari. u can still win big. just its gonna be a lot harder due to present day society that judges people by what they're worth and how much income they make.




I know a few people who graduated from a community college and their more wealthy then the people who attended a well known university..There is people who is really smart but they don't know how to apply to the real world..

When you get a job they look at your resume and all your past experience..The more job you have listed the better chance you get hired..They want the more knowledgable individual to run their business and that have personaly first-hand experience because they don't want to waste their time teaching that person.. The degree from that university is just a piece of paper to them till you get your hands dirty..It will only give you a edge...

5,000 x 12 = 60,000 which is a major improvement, but not consistent enough to make 60,000 a year since he "sometimes" gets enough for 3,000 and "must" of the time he gets enough for 5,000.

If he has a family at the age of 23 he made a mistake. Considering he has three cars thats an idiotic financial move. Insurance is a bitch to pay especially for three cars. Its only decent for someone who never graduated from college honestly. He could make more by joining the military(Isn't so smart nowadays, but awhile ago it was an incredibly smart move) become a cop to have a STEADY income, go to college(time extensive normally people who don't go to college either can't or are too lazy to go), or start their own business which takes a few years to actually do well.

21 x 40 = 840 x 4 = 3360 a month considering he works 40 hours every week. Thats not including overtime or the particular month since some are shorter than others.

What your cousin is making is decent for himself, but only himself. He could survive with a family on that wage, but the money would be tight IF he was the only one working which normally isn't the case anymore.

It really depends on your financial situation. It will depend on your emotional attitude as well. But it is important to study in a high class university, if you will not have any financial problems and you are ready for the university. But, it is important for you to figure out what you want to do, not everyone else.

The direction in which education starts a man will determine his future life. The Traditional College. Adult students are more likely to succeed in online education than a traditional college .How do you see the adoption of educational technologies, including the implementation of fully online and blended courses and programs developing.

Universities are no longer about the education they offer you - it's about the money you pay them, just like everywhere else.

With that in mind, no. Not really. It doesn't matter as much as what YOU yourself do. Many people have built empires without University. Many Harvard graduates have went on to live normal, middle-class lives or even less.

It's about you.

Yes... and no! With the success rate of students from higher class universities... employers see that and think... "Hey that school must be doing something right!" So it would be easier to land a career with a degree from Harvard than one from say... Mizzou. Which is why the upper echelon universities charge so much for Tuition. If someone is going to fork out that kind of money, they must really want to be successful. Rather... most have no choice but to be successful or live in debt for their entire life.

But thats not to say that the Mizzou grad doesn't have a chance to be successful... If you arleady have the drive to be successful it doesn't matter where you go... But there will be more Mizzou grads that fail as opposed to the Harvard grads.

Charisma is also key.
