    Bill Burr nailed it! I graduated from a very tough state university that had an open admission policy and a very high failure rate. It provided an excellent education. The problem was how the stats looked on paper. So with some marketing strategy, the board decided to raise admission standards to those of ivy league schools but dumbed down the curriculum for a higher graduation rate. This resulted in some impressive stats but with a trade-off of graduates receiving a substandard education. At least students have a "ball" while they are matriculating.

                    When OJ busts into that crooked meeting on the ship and the beginning of Naked Gun. That is one of the funniest scenes ever. Bear trap, wet paint, wood stove etc....etc....

                      I’m asian and all my siblings and cousins went to ivy league schools or really good private universities except for me—i didn’t even finish college. I always get looked down on by my parents, aunts and uncles, but i’m doing fine. I lived life my way and now i own a commercial property, residential investment properties and a cafe. Plus, i am the good looking one in the family. FTW

                                      The upvote ratio on this video Vs the audience reaction is a great example of how people are dishonest in front of other people and toe the PC line. Some of it could be a California crowd, but not most of the difference.

                                          The scene when he gets shot on the boat, and then just has terrible luck grabbing onto a hot furnace, getting his jacket messy on wet paint, and then falling face first onto a perfectly placed wedding cake has had me uncontrollably laughing for years.

                                          A friend of my family got accolades like crazy for math in high school, wrote a book on solving the rubik's cube as a junior (early 80s), and attended MIT. He went from being a top student in the entire state of California to being a middle-of-the-pack student in college. He busted his butt for average grades in college and described how dumb he felt among his classmates. I really think it depends on the school and program of study. I have friends who worked hard to transfer to UC Berkeley from junior college. They got in on a non-competitive program and then did what they had to in order to declare the major they really wanted from a competitive department. The curriculum was so intense that cheating was rampant and an open secret. I hate knowing about it even today. One of them was a student of mine (i tutored calculus in college). She would drive to my house, pick me up, and feed me food and alcohol in between intense study sessions. She managed to get honors and didn't even write her honors thesis, but paid a grad student to do it for her. To this day, whenever she attempts to invoke the logical fallacy of authority (well I went to Berkeley) during our political debates, i counter about her open cheating and admitted shortcuts throughout her college career.

                                              Unless you pick something obscure like Social Science...what's different about hard math and quantitative science? As opposed to a Community College? It's all the same formulas and algorithms in the book. Some professors might have a better grasp on a particular chapter or have a better way of explaining the nuances of a certain topic, but it's all on you to understand whats presented.

                                              If you put in the time... you'll understand everything.

                                                            The part about acceptance being difficult, is true for some of the schools. But the schools with lower acceptance rates have higher graduation rates. Schools like my public college that accept over 70% of applicants, have terrible graduation rates. I don't know what the reasons are - perhaps because it is so expensive to go to USC, UCLA, Harvard, Stanford, that people are unlikely to quit. Or maybe it is good to not accept everyone, so that they don't waste their own time and money like they did at my kinder college. But there is a lot of data out there, that will challenge everyone's own biases about college. The only truth I was given about college attendance, was when the dean told everyone to look to the person on your left, then the person on your right, and said "those 2 people will not be here anymore by the end of the first year". That was true for my school, but doesn't appear to be true for the more selective universities.

It's justifiable only before it's turned into a prop for a sheer image of "prestige." Once you are in, you are fine!
