Don't be a fool. There is a difference between cynicism and realism. I did not put those words into my daughter's mouth, but I was pleased that she and her peers recognized mediocrity. I have never talked down universities to her, but she had the shrewdness to see what was happening. Don't you? I can't believe that you would categorically deny the possibility - it would take a degree of obtuseness that I would hope you don't have.(Original post by Gridiron-Gangster)
As opposed to be an arrogant, pompous git?
There is nothing idealistic about my comments. You claim to have spent time associated with universities but not Cambridge. You base your opinions based on your own misconceptions and arrogance.
I am in more of position to give advice than you are having studied at the university as a postgrad.
If you wish to continue this conversation feel free to PM me otherwise please stop replying to my comments with your inane and totally inaccurate information.
Don't you understand that I am talking about limited cases? That I am not arguing it is the norm? The OP, in his ambivalence, should ask himself about the nature of his degree - and I do not know anything about his course. It is important.
who are introverts?
