Dayum. Happy birthday to her!I agree with clock entirely --Kellnerin
This reminds me of a recent NPR story I heard about a company that sells web-based testing of potential job applicants to other companies. They do a lot of tracking of previous test-takers career success/progress in order to measure how well their test scores predict successful outcomes, and one of the things they found is that having a 4-year degree in computer science has nothing to do with whether or not somebody is a good programmer. So that was 6 years and a lot of money wasted (yeah, I know, I had a lot of formative experiences, met interesting people, yada yada - I could have gotten similar experiences working on ocean-going cargo ships, or being in the military, etc.) Sometimes I think having a college degree is basically just a union membership where you pay all the dues up front.
(The article also said that they found that Chrome and Firefox users tended to be better employees than IE or Safari users, and that totally tracks with my experience. However, they don't actually share that information about job applicants because using it to make a hiring decision would be "discriminatory".)
Of course, I guess they might be made, just it's too late to make them at uni. Though the last paper taken alone would push towards some congenital thing.
