    they never use what they learned in clogele on their job. "I use what I learned in school every day. A lot of your claims seem to be based on anecdotal hear-say, not evidence. I bet Mark Perry uses what he learned in clogele everyday, too ;)" we wouldn't have the stupid hiring we see now, but it is fairly widely accepted that the curricula themselves are largely worthless for the job."Stupid hiring? "Yes, matrix algebra is completely worthless on the job, as that's what your computer is for. If you find yourself solving matrix equations by hand, there is something very wrong at your workplace."So what do you say to the guy who writes codes and has to program for solving matrix equations? I actually had to do it by hand once, or develop the code for doing it, since no off the shelf solution existed. "Actually a lot of Burger King employees did go to clogele. ;)"Actually, not a lot of them did. What's a lot to you? 1 thousandth of a %?"And those odds are changing as people start to realize the worthlessness of clogele, witness the many computer programmers who never got a clogele degree."I have never witnessed a computer programmer that never got a clogele degree. Does Microsoft hire computer programmers that don't have clogele credentials in their field? ;) Gee...I wonder why that is, even through their own founder didn't have one. "Yes, the MIT grad will tend to afford that Mercedes easier, but you are confusing correlation with causation, as explained before. "No one is claiming correlation or causation. I'm claiming sampling bias. Colombia or MIT or others practice sampling bias...the bias that tells the employer that an engineer from MIT is going to be a better engineer than one from Mississippi State. What you are saying is true; that is the purpose of clogele. It weeds out people into categories for employers to chose from, without having to incur the costs themselves. And thats a VERY important role that it plays. Employers are not going to experiment on a constant basis to hire anyone off the street that claims to have the knowledge they seek. But they KNOW...with a certain degree of certainty, that someone who went through 4-5 years in a top university, is very likely to be much more competent than someone who didn't.A 4-5 year "aptitude test" to prove to an employer that you have what it takes, isn't cheap. It shouldn't be cheap. "And if you can learn more valuable material at a fraction of the cost online, then the price of that degree is vastly inflated, regardless of what salary you end up with"Information is free. Schools don't teach information. You can go get information at Wikipedia if you want. Employers aren't looking at what information you have access too.This is what a lot of people here are missing; education is not about information.
