  • Yeah, my mom: she didn't go to college. My son, he has taken a few online classes, but isnt' interested in traditional college. And probably some of the moms I talk to on here.

  • Yes, of course. Not everyone is cut out for college.

  • Sure hon. Plenty of people. Intelligence can be achieved outside of a classroom too. I think I'm pretty smart and I never went. Is that anon still bothering you?

  • My mom didnt finish her degree, but is one of the smartest people I've ever met. You can learn outside of a school setting, and I happen to feel that life experience can educate someone better than a classroom in some instances. I only finished a semester of college, yet I can carry on an intelligent conversation with people attending some of the best universities in the country.

  • I've known some very well educated people who couldn't hold a conversation to save their lives. Intelligence isn't always something that can be bought with a degree... book smarts, maybe- but there are a lot of very intelligent people out there that have never stepped foot in a university.
