1. The divide between world reality and collegiate education had continued to widen. Campuses are ideological safe spaces policed by weak people who are slaves to SJW ideology. Campuses are dystopian reeducation
There's no sense of personal leadership truly, a degree is a done for you plan, all the steps laid out. This engrains being a follower
You THINK youre focused/productive, but youve no idea how to plan for yourself
Outside of top universities and STEM fields, colleges increasingly cater to the lowest common denominator. The quality of education has been vastly diluted, and excellence is no longer the norm
The grading system tricks you into thinking that "good enough" is enough in real life. Real world, the BEST are who get ahead, not those who do makeup credit to save their grade
Reality doesnt reward the average
Because you can get by doing the minimum, your standards for yourself gradually fall. Okay becomes good enough for you
Many get through college doing LESS than their best,
& then life blindsides you in its demands
You've no ability at long-term planning at all. Uni did that for you. It gave you your vision, now you're lost when you graduate
Life does not progress in nice/neat stages with grades and semesters
Cramming & working hard end of semester are part & parcel for people.
This leads you into thinking that effort can wax and wane, and it's OKAY
Real life, those who succeed do their best EVERY DAY
You've no idea what excellence is, because you've never practiced it in 5-6 years of getting your (possibly worthless) degree.
You think that life is a series of clear stages with defined expectations
"I got a 3.8 this semester!"
Good for you, no one gives a fuck.
College is where you get it molded into you that a keeping up with jones lifestyle is something to aspire to
Enjoy your debt and empty soul
You expect to be encouraged for doing whats required of you. Colleges DONT want you to fail out. They coddle you to keep you going. You emerge nothing more than a pawn for someone else's ambitions
IF even that
You think life has "make-ups"
Make up exam, credit, quizzes etc.
NOT in the real world.
You fail, you miss an opportunity, TOUGH SHIT. Theres no makeup, you go back, fail again till you get it right
Time keeps going regardless
Real world-failure happens, & you must keep persisting
College-Dont worry, just take the class over, it’s okay
When you fail in real world, it's crippling, you've zero idea of how to think about it, handle it, use it
You expect life to have defined "Goals" that make you super happy
This lasts until you get your degree and the high goes away in 2 days
Goals are markers in time, they are NOT the end game
Safety is for slaves who get to be protected by master from doing anything stupid and get told what to do
This goes back to living in a disgusting ideological bubble
Its making you Weak, like everyone else in it
College is safe, environment is safe, you're essentially given what to do every day
You've never had to handle fear of the unknown, aside from struggling with coursework
Degree is given to you, real world comes
OH GOD NO
Tens and hundreds of thousands of dollars for 4-6 years of brainwashing and getting a pissant education
Its not worth it, at all, and it never will become worth it
-Everything else, the more subjective the subject, the more likely it is to be fraught with ideological garbage
