I think what I was supposed to say,
was that there are some people that are at the top of their field without schooling. Like Bill Gates.

You can truly have a raw talent for something productive, without schooling, and still do much better than the average person who took classes in the subject.


education is only a tool, and depending on who uses it, it can be used well.

without education however, its harder to succeed, but of course it can be done with will power and a large amount of luck =]

I've not heard anyone mix the two here.
Universities are different than private and community college.
A lot of american people get really touchy if you were to confuse the three.

Universities are generally larger - the state universities, any school that offers every basic subject and their sub-studies.

Private schools are extremely expensive, but specialized usually in one area of study (art schools, specialty schools) and usually better for the student as far as being on a personal level with the professor.

Community colleges are more affordable, but kind of at the bottom of the "genius-making" tier.


Jobs are more likely to hire a person from a Private College or University, and it really shouldn't be that way.
