The big U was directly responsible for my career. I was very well prepared and used my knowledge every day. Most importantly, I learned how to think.
Honestly both. once I grauated I worked my *** off for 2/3 years. Without the stress so it's a good question.
I feel equally unprepared for work. You learn a lot of stuff that you will never need again in your life. What you need is practical experience and that was exactly what the university didn't offer. The whole system seem to be designed in a way to make learning unattractive and unnecessarily hard. I feel like all my graduation proves is, that I can learn complex stuff under really bad circumstances and then manage to remember at least half of it, just before I erase it from my brain to learn the next topic.
I didn't start college until after I comleted three years in the army and I worked all the time I went to school.
Well, going to university meant I had to get a job...so, I'm not sure one really prepared for the other.
