Too many college graduates?

A growing number of college graduates are underemployed, concludes a new study. Nearly half of employed college graduates are in jobs that don’t require a four-year degree, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

  1. There are too many college graduates – many from crappy Universities, many with crappy majors that should never have existed in the first place – and it’s predicted that in one or two generations, 60% or more of the colleges in existence today will be, well, out of business.

  2. In the end, only the oldest, wisest, largest, brick-and-mortar, and most well known Universities will survive: the Harvards, UT Austins, UC Berkelys, etc. Little No-Ones-Ever-Heard-Of-It State U. in some small town where(?) will be long gone by then.

    • I’m resisting the urge to quote Lear’s Fool, but if I hear that a man has gone to Harvard Law School, for instance, I know that though he is a very learned man, his wisdom is suspect.

    Elim, certain professions require both a college degree and professional certification – for these, the coursework can’t get too dumbed down. Who is more employable? A Harvard Sociology grad or a Montana State – Bozeman Electrical Engineering grad?
