    Why would I spent $150k to learn about something that has absolutely no application to what I want to do or really anything at all. Whilst I may not directly use what I learn from my statistics degree in my future jobs getting a 1st in my course will prove to employers that I'm smart and logical as fuck. i'm not going to spend that much money so I can learn about some french poem, whatever prose is or some painting some guy made in the 1500s, that's not going to get me an internship in IB or even accounting at a big 4 firm, it'll get me into debt and give me something to talk to girls who went to liberal arts colleges about. I understand if you're rich enough to not care about $23k a year in fees then go study whatever you want for personal enjoyment, i'd be at CSM making sickening sculptures if what I studied didn't matter, but why "should" someone study art history, language or literature? I can wikipedia that shit, I know a girl at Warick doing art history what employer is going to give a fuck if she knows what style some painting is.

    I dont want to open this can of worms here, but I have to comment. I think it's important for people to be broad. I just don't know if that breadth is worth $1000 a college credit. You don't need to go to college to learn art history/language/literature- and if you have a degree/career in a field that will actually pay you, you can pursue those interests w/o the stress of having to take loans out and find a way to turn those interests into a career. Breadth is important but the idea of pursuing it through overpriced liberal arts colleges is asinine.

    Both of you are explaining the reality of the situation as a counterpoint to concealed's statement, but reality in this case is the meltdown that is modern collegiate education. You are defending your choices, which are dictated by the situation. Concealed is suggesting the modern situation is a shitty one. And it is.

    What do you consider a non-swimmer? I mean, I can swim... but not for long and not that well.

    For instance, if you dropped me in the deep end of the pool, I could swim to the shallow end of the pool without a problem underwater. Not so great with my head poking up and down out of water, but I'd make it - out of breath. Now if you told me to float or wade in the deep end for more than 30 seconds, 90's Pamela Anderson better be standing next to the pool with a lifesaver on hand.

    i can barely float. I won't drown, but I won't last in water for long either.

    you guys gotta work on treading water, chill out with a hand on the ladder and just get the speed of your scissor kicks right. not too slow but not fast and panicky, just learn to get comfortable.
