|This seems bitter and resentful more than honest and accurate. I am a Davidson graduate as well and Davidson has always opened doors for me. I learned how to think far beyond most college experiences. I met people and made lifetime friends of the highest quality people.|
Maybe this person just resented working hard. But in any job, the skills of hard work and critical thinking I learned at Davidson impressed them and have served me well.
So here's the deal: Send me a check for $10,000, I'll kick you in the nuts, you take my advice, and we'll call it a day. Trust me, you want to make that deal.
Tres amusant, mon ami.
|Funny and true. I graduated (thankfully) from Furman, and while the grade deflation isn't as horrible as Davidson's, it is bad. Worse, no one outside the SE has ever heard of it. One job interviewer asked me: "Furman? Isn't that a religious school?" Interview over.|
|I know someone who followed your advice and transferred out of Davidson (after a miserable and emotionally traumatic year-and-a-half) to a public flagship, where she had a much better overall experience. From her account, Davidson is full of passive-aggressive sadists, with the worst offenders being rich prep-school kids from NC and VA. The psychodrama just isn't worth the payoff!|
